Frankston Arts Centre is living up to its 2021 theme It’s the Arts and It’s Waiting for You with two online exhibitions showcasing diverse and stunning artworks.
Vanessa White’s Budgie Nation, pictured, captures the artist’s love of all things budgie in her heartfelt and aptly titled exhibition. An award-winning breeder, Vanessa is entranced with a bird that has become renowned as a household pet yet retains its exotic allure. Her artworks shine with wit and humour, enhanced by a joyous melding of the abstract Expressionism and pop art styles.
Caroline Graley and John Noordennen’s Arabesque is a new multimedia installation and the latest of a series of works examining the concept of inflorescence or flowering. It is an elegant form featuring stunning video projection that can viewed online and also from the street front at Cube 37, Davey St, after dark. Caroline is a long-time resident of the Peninsula and delights in the organic rhythms and beauty of its natural coastal environment. This together with her love of dance have fuelled the spirit of her work.
Frankston City Council’s arts and culture manager, Andrew Moon, said that while 2021 had seen a series of ‘showstoppers’ due to the pandemic, FAC continued to celebrate the arts while also engaging with patrons and art lovers.
