Latest news from the
Solitude Art Gallery / Studio…

Hi Solitude Art Tribe!
It is hard to believe that we are almost at the end of February…Yikes! Over the past six weeks the Gallery has been slowly building momentum in a period of the year that is usually slow for visitors. We are seeing an increasing number of visitors to the Gallery and plenty of enquiries about the ART!
The studio has been busy and off to a great start with the creation of my latest artwork, ‘SHIA’ (check it out HERE). I am also currently working on two of three large portraits for this year’s national portrait competitions. I will be entering into the Archibald, Doug Moran and the Black Swan Portrait prizes, so I’m definitely stepping it up with the portraits this year, so there is another busy three months or so to come working on these paintings.
I also have plans bubbling in the pot for a solo show of my artwork called ‘CALL OF THE WILD’. There will be an exhibition at the Gallery around May-June and I am looking at other options to get the collection down the east coast of Oz. I am on the look out for new venues/galleries that would be interested in hanging my exhibition. If you are aware of any venues that would be interested in taking part in this opportunity, please contact the Gallery at [email protected]

To be honest I really didn’t want to paint an owl, nor, apparently, did I want to deal with the negative hooks that held me down!
To make it all disappear, all I had to do was to follow the signs and open the door to the other side. In doing this, ‘SHIA’ opened a hidden connection from deep within me. An emerging of true spirit that would recapture and realign me with my true path. She guided me with her intuition, gave me the ability to…Read more HERE: Artwork ‘SHIA’ Media Oil on Canvas Size H 710mm x W 1660mm x B 45mm Artist Darren Trebilco
