Beaver Galleries with Mandy Martin and Nicola Dickson Exhibitions

3 September 2015

It’s a first for an artist with a long list of artistic and environmental credentials with Mandy Martin exhibiting at Beaver Galleries a collection called A Change in the Weather. These new paintings reflect her vision of the impact and anxiety for the changing climate during the past 20 years living on a large property in the Central West of NSW. This time has been used not just creatively but to co-ordinate art and environment practices and her paintings, with the burning, smoke haze, firestorms, snow, mega fires and cooling rainstorms are weather of the here and now that is to Martin prescient

As a lecturer at the Canberra School of Art little did Martin expect that one of her students, Nicola Dickson, would one day share the limelight at a joint exhibition at Beaver Galleries.
And what a glorious contrast as the luminosity of Dickson’s works shows how the drawings of Austrian draughtsman Ferdinand Bauer has influenced this collection with the “bizarre beauty of Australian flora and fauna”, that she references and gives a hint of chinoiserie to, especially in the stunning triptych.

The opening night crowds are again well served by Beaver Galleries at Deakin that has changed and evolved to suit its market.
