'The Pleasure of Your Company' Front Room Exhibition by Kate Bergin
Opening Night 5pm - 7pm Thursday 7th July, 2022, with Artist Talk at 6:30pm

This free exhibition runs from 8th July to the 27th July and is open to the public everyday from 11am - 5pm.

With a career spanning 25 years, Kate Bergin is regarded as a highly collectible artist. Her artworks revel in the unusual, the precarious and the unexpected. Animals poised to leap from the canvas; birds to take flight; Bergin’s intoxicating work, captures the mundane and exotic in virtuosic detail.

Kate Bergin studied at the Victorian College of the Arts from 1990-92. While the main building was located on St Kilda Road the Painting Department was housed at the back of the National Gallery of Victoria. Being able to access the collection on a daily basis and study it up close had an enormous influence and gave her an appreciation for great painting techniques.

A favourite artist discovered during this time was Hugh Ramsay, an Australian artist considered one of the great students of the Gallery School. He was celebrated at the Paris Salon of 1902 but died at the age of 29 in 1906. I found some beautiful sketches of his in the storerooms from his time at the Gallery School.
