Along the Edge is the exciting new exhibition by artists Hilary Wakeling and Greg Hughes on display at the Old SchoolHouse Gallery throughout March.

Wildlife gathers along the edge of cliffs, the edge of beaches and reefs, and it is these habitats that Hilary has captured in her new series of paintings.

Hilary has returned to her beloved watercolour medium in depicting these images – although with a twist – as many are painted on canvas, which is unusual for watercolour. She hopes you enjoy the paintings and reflect on the beautiful birds and animals we have “along the edges” of this world.

In his series of artworks depicting coastlines, inlets, river margins, and waterfronts, artist Greg Hughes has aimed to present places around Australia and, in some cases, humanity’s interaction and influence on these places. Through watercolour and acrylic, Greg has endeavoured to capture the essence of an environment that is, in turn, majestic, tumultuous and uncertain.

The first day of this fantastic exhibition is Thursday, February 29. The exhibition will run until the public holiday on Easter Monday, April 1.

The Old SchoolHouse Gallery is open Thursdays to Sundays and on public holidays from 9:30am to 4:30pm, at 124-126 Shore Street North, Cleveland. We look forward to welcoming you.
