Art | Current Exhibitions

The art work at the Convent Gallery is changed every eight weeks, so there is something new to admire on every visit to Daylesford.  Each of the seven individual gallery spaces showcase the work of a different artist.

Angela Anderson

Unsurpassed shorelines, meandering creeks, the iconic Cable Beach, rugged
pindan rocky cliffs, these elements all combine to set the stage for the main
feature, the Kimberley coast. It’s from the breathtaking coastal vistas that I
draw my artist inspiration and it’s an idyllic palette for my studio.

Artist Profile

Barbara Hauser

Barbara’s trademark style is painting with acrylics on printed fabric.  The colourful fabric in the background is typically blended into the core subject, adding another an interesting element to the painting.  This method of painting on the floor means that she can create a ‘studio’ anywhere in the world

Glenys Buzza

“For me, charcoal on paper is the soul of all drawing and painting media.

Faced with a sheet of beautiful white paper and a stick of rough willow charcoal there are no escape routes, no ways to disguise, no distractions such as colour, and no second chances. Just purity!”
