'The marvellous thing about art is that it brings to light the contrast of perception, revealing that we can all see the same image but filter it different within our own reality tunnel. There is no right or wrong way to view art, there is only a personally filtered version of a combined realty. '
Please join us to celebrate the body of work of the students. The artists will be in the gallery to talk about their work.

Drapl’s latest work expresses his love for the symbiotic relationship between nature, colour and the presence of magic that is everywhere and in every living organism. Since moving to the bush, away from the demands and distractions of city life, a new psychedelic-realism style of portraiture has emerged. For this exhibition Drapl has made his own uber-sized canvases and has been dreaming up extraordinary ways to exhibit these special works. He hopes everyone who sees this show leaves either totally confused or with a life changing experience!
Come and see Drapl’s inspired new works, and experience a visual orgasm as we present a magical mix of aerosol, RGB lighting and multi-dimensional co-creation in the courtyard on opening night. Take a bite, or even take home your very own slice of this sexy cheesecake!

The Loovre has become an innovative space at Jugglers which will for a few weeks be filled with contemporary female portraits by Lauren Simpson. Using paint mediums such as gouache and acrylic on wood panel, the paintings depict ethereal, stylised versions of reality and self.
The ideas we hold about ourselves is not always construed on our exterior to other people, but through art the physical representation we believe we should hold can be manifested. The paintings communicate themes of beauty standards, mental health awareness and self-belief when it comes to creative opportunities.
Opening: December 9th 2016, 6-9pm
Vacationer runs until December 21st 2016.
Vacationer is a small exhibition of paintings and sculptures produced by Ben Landers over the past 10 years. Images of mainstream pastimes, such as mini-golf, video games and table tennis, feature in many of these works coupled with a home-grown aesthetic characteristic of skate culture. As an artist who often uses materials and techniques commonly labelled as ‘craft’, Landers plays within the space between, and questions notions of, official and unofficial culture.
A catalogue essay by Joseph Breikers accompanies the exhibition.
The darkness is infinite.
Within the darkness imagination is unbound.
What lurks in the dark are projections of our own psyche, reflections of our hidden Self.
It is here we can fashion our wildest dreams or ultimate horror.
Out of the dark we fashion ourselves.
From the Darkness is one artist’s excursion into the darkness in an attempt to interpret those illusive things that lurk behind the light.
Opening night Friday 25 November 6pm - 9pm
Exhibition runs from 24 November - 7 December 2016
Opening hours Mon - Fri 10am - 4pm
24 Nov – 7 Dec
Opening: Friday, 25 Nov 6 – 9pm
A group show by Renata Buziak, Billy Shannon, Sona Babajanyan, Travis D. Hendrix, Chris Bowes and Henri van Noordenburg
Artists create by making manifest our thoughts on the world, on ideas, feelings and experience. A process that happens both immediately and over many years, our work is an outpouring of various aspects of our observation, research, synergistic correlations and beliefs.
Our exhibition title, ‘A Persistent Illusion’, is derived from a quote by Albert Einstein, who believed that “reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one”.
While the world around us may appear solid, logical and linear, the personal reality we each experience is anything but. At certain moments, the intersection of our personal reality and our external reality gives rise to an unusual sensation of unreality, in which the illusion of a cohesive reality seems to waver (daydreams, déjà vu, etc). For this year’s exhibition, each artist was invited to explore these moments of unreality, as well as interrogating broader notions of reality from both an individual and conceptual viewpoint.
This exhibition is part of the Year of Print Celebrations to commemorate the Print Council of Australia's 50th year anniversary.

The Fallen Human by Fabio Giocondo

Rising to prominence in the last decade, Italian artist Fabio Giocondo quickly achieved national and international recognition for his art, winning numerous prizes throughout Europe. His thought-provoking work is classic, oil on canvas with a sixteenth century colour palette and predominately portrays the human figure in theatrical and often distorted ways.
Giocondo has been exhibited in the Vatican Gallery, and in galleries throughout Italy as well Brussels, Monte Carlo and Hamburg. The Fallen Human is his first exhibition in Australia.
