Etchings and monotypes at The Hanging Space Gallery

Went to The Hanging Space Gallery at Woonona  yesterday to check out  regeneration, new offerings by Judy Bourke and Mary Wingrave.  The little gallery space is just at the back of Manic Organic health foods and organic produce on the Princes Hwy.

It’s a simple space but works well.  That dynamic and happening bunch, IAVA ( Illawarra Association for the Visual Arts) are running it these days.

I have known Judy for years as a  dedicated artist who produces a dizzying array of art in a wide spectrum of media. Producing art  is like breathing for Judy, it seems. Mary’s name was known to me, but not her art. She had some interesting etchings, mixed media and folded paper works.













Mary Wingrave, Four eyes four ears, mixed media on paper.

It was Judy’s monoprints that grabbed me though…so much that I went crazy and bought one (courtesy, it must be said, of a recent sale of a piece of my own work. It goes around…)












Judy Bourke: I feel much better now, monotype on paper.













Judy Bourke, I’ll save you, monotype on paper.
