Warmth of art at Seaview

Flower Child, by Kate Smith.

Renowned for a spectacular array of displays including paintings, glass, ceramics and jewellery, the gallery has a particularly busy and exciting exhibition calendar.
From 15 July to 6 August the gallery present’s Kate Smith’s The Enchanted Doll collection.
The small, exclusive exhibition features many aspects of Smith’s visionary fantasy with a touch of whimsy.
The Enchanted Doll features presents dolls in controlled poses and glances through a unique mix of pastel, graphite pencil, and dry lustre pigments for a distinctive, shimmering aura and dreamlike qualities.
Each purchase of the original works comes with a complementary cloth doll, handmade by Smith.
Following Smith’s collection launch, Seaview regular Emma Hack returns for a talk and high tea to present her new work, from 2pm to 4.30pm on 16 July.
La Salle a Manger, adjoining the gallery, will host the high tea, with bookings essential.

The event costs $45 a head, including a glass of bubbly.
Paul Evans presents A Place So Real from 12-31 August.
Seaview is looking forward to this extraordinary artist’s exhibition, with Evans’ work described as visually dynamic, beautifully balanced and immensely evocative.
Evans is represented in numerous private collections in Australia and overseas.

Gall’s beautiful landscapes are celebrated for their beautiful textures and distinctive style.
