Showcase is the first show for 2014 at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham which opens tomorrow and runs until Sunday 23 February.  It celebrates the work of 20 different artists using all mediums and methods and the diverse collection includes painting and sculpture using different media from water colour to oil painting, pencil and ink to bronze, ceramic and recycled metal.

The show includes some of the gallery's best known and most popular artists including Ron Reynolds, Darren Gilbert, Chris and Mary-lou Pittard, Kate Hudson, Jessica Page, Julian Bruere, Anthony Williams, Joseph Attard, Mark Roberts and Janet Matthews.  The official opening is this Sunday 9 February from 2 - 4 pm.  Entry is free and I'm excited to say that Showcase will be followed by the gallery's first ever indigenous art exhibition - Diverse/City which opens on Wednesday 27 February.  For more information click here.

Speaking of art, my good friends at Banyule Arts and Culture are also holding the opening for Create from a crate competition and exhibition this Friday from 6 - 8pm at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe Parade, Ivanhoe.  The show highlights the inherent beauty of wood and will be opened by Damien Wright, President of the Victorian Woodworkers Association.  I love that this show also focuses on sustainability and re-cycling.  Create from a crate runs from 8 - 22 February and Hatch is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am - 5 pm.  Entry is also free.  For more information visit: http://www.vwa.org.au/exhibitions/create-crate/ or https://www.facebook.com/createfromacrate
