Spring is an exhibition by four established artists who work across the disciplines of Printmaking, Painting, Drawing and Sculpture, and create rich, engaging and diverse contemporary art that reflects upon the world in which we live.

In this group-show Vera Zulumovski explores colour using the medium of drawing with felt brush and ink. Like her prints the work is graphic and highly detailed using patterning and repetition to create motifs which mirror her life and preoccupations. Zulumovski has held 19 solo exhibitions most recently a 25year survey at Watt Space Gallery. Her work is held in numerous public collections including over a dozen in the National Gallery of Australia, where her work as been part of touring exhibitions and major works on paper survey exhibitions. She has won several commissions prizes and awards and recently her work has been included in the Bilbao Works on Paper Fair in Spain and the Ulsan International Woodcut Print Festival in South Korea.

Edward Milan makes work playing around with 'stuff', exploring, inventing and discovering ways of art making not fixed or driven by theory or structured around a rigid process. By drawing, cutting, painting, and assembling materials, Milan produces sculptural assemblages and constructions from a range of recycled materials often tracing shapes using hand drawn templates to produce multiple images and motifs. It's a thing that is here, it has arrived and it's in front of you. Milan has been a finalist in the Kilgour Prize, The Hillview Sculpture Prize, The North Sydney Art Prize, and won The Maitland Art Prize for Sculpture in 2014.

Michelle Brodie mines imagery from a range of sources; the media, snapshots and fleeting scenes from travels. The bust has been a more recent motif with its capacity to express history, human emotion, solitude and immortality. The images are opportunities for reflection on memory and the self. She uses her sketchbook to record and create drawings and collages to use later in the paintings which are symbolic and figurative. Her experiences emerge in the paintings in a non-linear poetic way with a dark undercurrent. Michelle Brodie has exhibited extensively since 2000 and is currently exhibiting at Maitland Regional Art Gallery in the group show Female Drivers. She has twice been a recipient of the Pat Corrigan Artist grant.

Annemarie Murland is a Scottish artist, visual researcher, curator and published arts writer who lives in Newcastle. Over the last 20 years Annemarie has exhibited on a regular basis both nationally and internationally where her ideas-led studio art practice explores the phenomenon, felt experience. The vehicle of abstraction alongside an interest in interdisciplinary practice reimagines drawing and painting material capabilities, its history and traditions to deliver sensory works of art.
