Current Exhibitions

Koorlanga at H-Art

July 1 – August 25

Celebrating NAIDOC week (2 – 9 July), we are proud to present an exhibition of culturally accurate dolls and other artworks by Noongar yorga (woman) Amber Thorne.


Michelle Eaton

July 18 – August 25

Michelle’s artworks are inspired by nature and depict the coastlines of where she used to live on Victoria’s Surfcoast. A self-taught artist, Michelle has been painting for 40 years. She has always worked with oils on canvas as the colours are truer to nature, and it is also easy to create your own colours. When Michelle was younger, she travelled and tried many different jobs. She began painting on envelopes, and gradually her hobby progressed to full canvases. Michelle has had exhibitions in Mallacoota, Williamstown, Castlemaine, Surf Coast Shire and New Zealand.

Upcoming Exhibition

From The Earth – Belmont AWAY Group Art Competition

August 28 – September 25               Launch Friday, September 1 at 6:00pm

A local art group, Belmontaway, is organising an art exhibition in our Rachinger Gallery. They chose the theme “From the Earth,” which will be explored through painting, printing, photography and sculpture. Belmontaway believe that nature is the wellspring of our creativity and well-being and can be celebrated using many different artforms.

Three members of the art group, Gale Jarmyn, Jan Rockliff and Gabrielle Bridges are paying tribute to this theme with paintings, prints and photocollages, and they have invited a sculptor, Jacinta Leitch, to exhibit some of her work, and a photographer, Sheryle Griffiths to display her photographs of nature. Belmontaway are delighted to also include a wide variety of artworks in different media from residents in the Geelong region.

Belmontaway are very grateful to the Rachinger Gallery and Eastern Hub for making their space available for this exhibition and hope it gives people a greater sense of connection to nature and appreciation of how many different artistic approaches can showcase one central theme.

All welcome, but RSVPS essential by Friday 25th August. Reply via this link: https://tinyurl.com/yv6ups84
