About Rachinger Gallery
Eastern Hub Community Centre is home to Rachinger Gallery, a vibrant and contemporary art gallery located in East Geelong . Rachinger Gallery features a changing program of exhibitions by artists both emerging and established, arts groups, schools and artists living with disability. Named after Norman Rachinger, former Karingal President and art teacher, the gallery is an inclusive and welcoming space that promotes new work and new ways of seeing the world.
The Rachinger complements the creative work of Eastern Hub’s art classes and Art Studio while showcasing the depth and diversity of the visual arts in Geelong.
Exhibiting in the gallery is through an Expression of Interest. Please call 5249 6100 for more information.
Jack Bayley presents an extraordinary collection of abstract and mysterious paintings. Jack describes his works as “nature offset fractals”, created using a technique he has perfected over the years.
As Jack says, “chaos is the noise of order,” and his paintings manifest this metaphysical and artistic worldview.
Unity of Arts is a celebration of creative work by genU’s artists living with a disability, an eclectic and diverse exhibition of paintings and artworks. With subject matter ranging from fantastic landscapes to piano bars and an iconic glove, via still lifes, abstract and non-figurative work, this is an exhibition to intrigue and captivate.
Among the highlights are Jason R’s painting, The Broken One, an exploration of hybridity, part sea creature, part insect; Eliza C’s monochrome work that recreates The Tin Man, while Elvira J continues her investigation into topography, this time transforming the colours of the Australian outback into a wintry northern European vista.
Rita H, who earlier in the year held a one-woman show in the Rachinger, presents a 3D work of text and sculpture reflecting her fascination with Michael Jackson signifiers. Donna M’s painting of Flowers in a Vase is fauvist in its use of colour and richly textured, contrasting with David F’s Piano Bar, a gothic image of after dark denizens.
Also on show is a small selection of limited edition publications produced by Creative Books Arts.
Unity of Arts is richly imagined and uninhibited in subject matter and concludes Rachinger Gallery’s 2019 exhibition program.
