The Phee Broadway Theatre’s Foyer Exhibition Program will kick off this April with a selection of local artists taking over the space.

The theatre, which is located at Mechanics Lane, Castlemaine, is a community gathering place, where creativity is fostered, people connect, and shared narratives are explored.

The first artist to exhibit their work is Nadyne de Vel, a Castlemaine local who creates beautiful, dark and allusive drawings.

Upcoming artists exhibiting as part of the 2022 program include:

Helen Seligman – a printmaker whose work explores environmental themes.

Jennifer Sharpe – a woven tapestry artist whose work is inspired by life experiences, and Australian flora and fauna.

Martin John Lee – a videographer who uses text-based animation to celebrate LGBTQIA+ dignity, equality and visibility.

Paul Allen – a gouache and acrylic artist whose exhibition, Gentle Conundrums and the Snare of Contemplation, focuses on mandalas.

Council’s Manager of Economy and Culture, Merryn Tinkler, said that the program is a great way to support local artists by offering a free exhibition space in a highly-used community area.

“We were excited to see such a diverse range of artists apply for this program, and we’re really looking forward to the five exhibitions over the coming months,” said Ms Tinkler.

The Phee Broadway Theatre’s Foyer Exhibition Program will run from April until December, beginning on Monday 11 April with Nadyne de Vel’s drawings.
