‘Baltic Artists in Australia – Celebrating 100 Years’ is a retrospective group exhibition of artists living and working in Australia, with origins from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
2018 marks 100 years since all three Baltic countries – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – first declared their independence. These have been rather eventful 100 years and unfortunately following the World War II all three countries were occupied for several decades. During the war, many people escaped its horrors and afterward the pressures of an occupied society in search of freedom and peaceful life. By now a third generation has grown up calling Australia their home, with origins from one of the Baltic countries. Continue reading BALTIC ARTISTS IN AUSTRALIA – CELEBRATING 100 YEARS
Vermilion Art is thrilled to announce an exciting and relevant exhibition, SWORN SISTERS. The exhibition presents a collection of artworks by nine emerging and established female artists from China, including Chen Qingqing, Feng Ling, Hu Ming, Li Lin Lin, Geng Xue, Cindy Ng, Rose Wong and Xiao Lu.
Curated by the former ambassador to China, Geoff Raby, SWORN SISTERS will be the first exhibition to be held in Australia that features exclusively contemporary Chinese women artists.
By including women artists that resist and subvert not only the male gaze, but the male dominated art world, Vermilion Art hopes that the exhibition challenges stereotypes of Chinese woman as submissive and passive homemakers. By extension, SWORN SISTERS serves as a kind of intervention, to celebrate and acknowledge female agency and subjectivity within art and broader society.

The new exhibition at 107 Projects, Redfern is PRIMA BELLA by Sydney artist Bec Litvan.
For Litvan, her mother is her sole inspiration. Diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer, Bec’s mother underwent a double mastectomy, 26 rounds of chemotherapy and 29 sessions of radiotherapy before finally being declared clear of the disease.
With her mother’s mastectomy bras as a canvas, Litvan began to create sculptures that celebrated the scars and landscapes of a cancer-ravaged body. Her art practice grew from there.
“The fact that there’s a chance that my work could help [my mum’s] self confidence totally validates my art making,” says Litvan who will also be conducting an Art Making Workshop with curator Jackie Terrett .

Spaghetti junctions, highways and roads. They connect people and products. They cut new paths through cities, suburbs and the bush, bringing consumers and consumables together.
‘THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY’ is an exhibition of works by Emilio Crescani in which he uses an aspect of western Sydney car culture, recycling car yards, to highlight environmental issues.
A Blacktown car recycling yard houses hundreds of smashed cars, row upon row. Their bonnets up, car-lovers stroll through the space to purchase spare engine parts. Of course the windscreens are one component that cannot be reused.
“As I cut them out from the cars the safety glass stayed intact and I realised the interesting patterns look like street networks seen from above.”
“This series continues my exploration of redundancy, waste and urban change. My interest is in objects, structures and the urban landscape, and in particular the increasing number of ‘non-places’ that fill our environment. Beauty is found in these places and products of repulsion, neglect or obsolescence.”
THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY is at gaff ( 281 Clarence Street, Sydney) until December 4. For more information visit:

Artist Kristen Howarth is inviting art lovers to her first exhibition entitled FEARLESS.
This exhibition is a collection of my work in various shapes, sizes in acrylics and mixed media. The artworks have evolved during my journey to break through the fears that have held her back in life.
Kristen would love people to attend her exhibition and share in her journey. She sees fear as being the one thing that stops people stops people from attempting things. To step into the fear and try new things is to change the course and therefore the outcome but that can mean you need to get out of your comfort zone you need to be brave.
