What's Happening Here?

What's Happening Here? Town Hall Gallery, Hawthorn

18 March - 7 May 2017

Artists: Elyss McCleary / Laura Skerlj / Nyah Cornish / Jahnne Pasco-White / Eleanor Louise Butt / Merryn Lloyd / Anthea Kemp / Minna Gilligan

What’s Happening Here? takes a look at some of Melbourne’s most interesting emerging abstract painters. This group of artists produce works that are full of vigour, colour, and abject freedom. The title is a play on a common query about abstract art’s meaning as well as a reflection on an apparent surge of young artists working with imagery of this kind in Melbourne.
