Chris Aspland and Christine Lewis present their first joint exhibition exploring a nostalgic journey from past to present and celebrating the recreational pleasures of living by the sea. The artists celebrate the natural beauty of the bay, as well as their personal sense of history and connection with the landscape. As residents in the area, they hope to inspire viewers to appreciate the local eco-systems and to respect the need to maintain a clean and safe environment for both people and wildlife to thrive in.
Aspland and Lewis have studied in various levels of education, both formally and informally at a range of art institutions and studios. combined passion and commitment to painting and personal creativity is demonstrated by a relentless undertaking of tutored classes and workshops within the community. These include The Art Room, Beaumauris Art Group, Mentone/Mordialloc Art Society, Kingston Arts Centre and other private studios. We have both exhibited, sold and been awarded for our various works which we constantly present for exhibitions and competitions.
