Summer Salon Group Show
28 Jan 2023 - 25 Feb 2024
Spud Lane presents:
Summer Salon - A Group Curation
This is not your white cube experience! Expect a sensory journey where every corner whispers tales of artistic rebellion and boundless expression. Spud Lane is a gallery with a difference - a gallery where we blend a conucopia of really good art with Parisienne salon vibes and New-York urban feels.
The artists in our Summer Salon include Australian art giant Keith Looby and contemporary artist Tony Twigg whose wall-hung timber works invite viewers to delve into shape and form. Alongside these high-profile artists, we are also grounding the collection in the heart of our community with work from our resident artists Ric Abel and Cat Doyle, and local sculptor Lucinda McDonald amongst others.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
RIC ABEL: A finalist in the Blake Art Prize and the Archibald’s Salon des Refusés, Ric Abel travels through landscapes, skulls and quasi-cubist subjects. His art is introspective and exploratory, humorous and dark.
CAT DOYLE: British-Australian artist Cat Doyle explores themes of loneliness and belonging with a particular interest in counterculture and literary circles. A Gateshead lass from North-east England, she now lives and works in the Southern Highlands NSW.
LUCINDA MCDONALD: England Born Artist Lucinda McDonald's abstract, experimental paintings and sculptures continually strive to create balanced compositions, through the systematic, playful approach she takes with colour, line and shape.
KEITH LOOBY: Winner of the Archibald, Blake and Sulman Prizes Looby is one of the giants of Australian art, and has held Australian society to account with his incisive, satirical humour and fearless commentary on the late 20th century.
TONY TWIGG: Australian artist Tony Twigg has a strong international practice with 60 solo exhibitions presented in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines since 1975. Over his long career Twigg has also been known for his multi-disciplinary and film works, included in the iconic Cannes Film Festival.
JIMMY RIX: Award winning sculptor Jimmy Rix is best known for his narrative-based works which draw upon his encounters with animals in the Australian countryside.
CARLOS BARRIOS: A finalist in the Sulman and Blake art Prizes Carlos Barrios' work is populated by people, animals and spirits in a celebration of love, soulfulness and positivity.
