ART PIECE GALLERY

Hilary Herrmann’s solo show at Art Piece Gallery opens on Thursday 28 November with a sit-down dinner catered for by La Table.

Hilary works with fleeting thoughts and emotions whose basis lie in vulnerability and sensitivity.

Concerned that our busy lives often leave us disconnected and isolated, she expresses the innocent longing to reach out, to touch and be touched.

From character to character, from artist to viewer, the offerings come with disharming generosity. The arm is outstretched, the gaze direct. Hilary doesn’t shy away from re-affirming the simple message: love, kindness, generosity heal all. When asked to elaborate, she can only say; ‘There is enough that is sad with the world, I want the paintings to bring people joy’.

Call the gallery on 6684 3446 to reserve a place at Hilary’s table and meet this much loved and compassionate artist.
