Peninsula-based artist and designer Charlie Ryan is extending a warm welcome to winter with his latest solo exhibition in Mornington this month. Coinciding with the winter solstice, Meet Me in a Dark Cool Place will be held at Stoker Studio as a celebration of community, art and culture.

It follows Charlie’s sell-out 2021 exhibition Cocoon at Kerri Greens Winery in Red Hill, and his new works include his second series of paired Cocoons — an annual collection of beautiful natural abstract artworks. “Although stories in themselves told through colour and texture, these unique paintings represent the things we can create and contribute after a state of reflection or hibernation,” Charlie said.

The Cocoon paintings will be auctioned during the two-week exhibition, with the profits going towards helping finance some of Charlie’s community projects for next year. The sale of the 2021 collection helped support Charlie’s V for Victori project, whose uplifting billboards, posters and messages in response to the pandemic earned him a place in the finals of the Victorian Premier’s Design Awards at the National Gallery of Victoria along with an exhibition as part of the NGV Melbourne Design Week in March.

Meet Me in a Dark Cool Place opens on Friday, June 24, at 25 Diane St, Mornington, with drinks from 5.30-8.30pm. The opening weekend will include a range of activities and entertainment, including pottery painting classes for kids, and a performance by Northern Rivers-based band Boats. The exhibition continues until July 10. See for opening hours.
