Art | Past Exhibitions

The Convent can access works of past artists. Please call or join our mailing lists if you are interested in any of our past artists.

Adrian Blakey

Acrylic and Oil. Adrian ( Ade )  Blakey is a contemporary Melbourne artist, working in oil and acrylic

His paintings are inspired by people, places and events, and influenced by his love of 20th century abstract modern art.

Peter Kirk

Acrylic on Canvas – Peter believes that his success as a painter relies on his love of learning, his personal drive and his curiosity and ability to capture true feelings in his work that connect with the viewer. He has a passion for painting which he describes as a physical pleasure that runs alongside his
desire to represent himself and his ideas. He is unwilling to limit himself to one style, one specific pursuit or one thematic search in order.

Debra Jackson

“The inspiration for my exhibition comes from the beauty of our vast Australian landscape. My artwork is an attempt to capture a deeper meaning and spirit which comes with my connection to this land. I have developed a great interest in the naturally occurring and man made patterns and designs and represent the organic landscape with layers of textured paint, pattern and colour.”

Jordon Reed

Jordan Reed is a self- taught artist with a recognisable and distinctive style. His childhood was spent living in Northern country Victoria, later settling in the inner-suburbs of Melbourne, between periods of international travel.

Yael Susan Rayman

Yael’s works are based on spirituality, colour and a unique modern style. With a degree from Monash in Fine Arts, as well as Film and Television studies at Swinburne, Yael draws inspiration from the Baroque and Rococo periods

Pamela Orola

Working primarily with oil paints, Pamela Orola combines the use of a bold colour palette and slight misappropriation to depict the strong characteristics of one’s personality.

Tony Edelman

Tony Edelman lives and works in Toorak, Melbourne. His abstract paintings are intended to reflect the viewer’s subjective experience. They are currently displayed alongside his series of Liz Taylor and Judy Garland portraits. 

Robyn Riley

Robyn Riley is a local artist who lived in Melbourne for many years and has happily found her way to regional Victoria.
