Cessnock Regional Art Gallery presents Points of View, featuring the recent work of three established and highly respected Hunter artists - sculptor Vlasé Nikoleski and painters Christine Ross and Gordon Rintoul. The exhibition, running from 24th August until 30th September, explores the interaction between the natural and human environments.
All three artists are former lecturers in Fine Arts at the University of Newcastle and are represented in national and international collections.
Vlasé Nikoleski takes familiar elements and combines them into sculptures evocative of changing landscapes. His work varies in scale and medium, and includes bronze and stainless steel.

Christine Ross combines the atmospheric elements of colour and transparency with calligraphic overlays to investigate and interpret her journeys into the landscape. Her Vinescapes series explores the many vistas of seasonal variations in the Hunter vineyards.

Gordon Rintoul develops unexpected relationships between painterly and graphic mediums. He uses large paintings as sources for digital prints, enabling a vast range of variations in colour, tone and mood.
