Collaborative art exhibition: Meander Stream

Meander Stream is a collaborative art exhibition featuring the work of Clare Hooper and Ann-Marie Bateman.

What’s this collaborative art exhibition about?

The making of art is never a straight route, and often at the outset, there is no clear direction. It is an individual journey of seeing the world, and channelling it so it becomes a continuous flow laid out for the viewer to enjoy. This collaborative art exhibition brings these ideas together.

The name Meander Stream aims to summarise Clare Hooper and Ann-Marie Bateman’s processes and approaches to making art.

Where and when?

This collaborative art exhibition is taking place at Gallery Lane Cove and Creative Studios, Upper level, 164 Longueville Road, Lane Cove. The exhibition is running from 5 – 29 September. Gallery opening days and hours are: Monday – Friday from 10:00 am – 4:30 pm and Saturday from 10:00 am – 2:30 pm. The Gallery is closed on Sunday.

About Clare

From the beginning, Clare has worked boldly with colour, line and form. Her sense of colour is dynamic and exciting and takes us to a vibrant new world. Clare’s art is a response to her surroundings and the things she sees. It all comes together in an expressive and imaginative way.

Clare has won many awards and shown her work in exhibitions around Australia. In 2015/16, Clare was accepted into Uni 2 Beyond, an innovative program at The University of Sydney, to study art. During this time, she immersed herself in etching, printmaking, and mixed media.

About Ann-Marie

Ann-Marie’s work has evolved with over 20 years of interest in experimenting with the nature of surfaces and shapes that are often caught from the periphery of our gaze. These are sometimes fleeting and unremarkable images that are often overlooked in our day to day. These incidental glimpses of the everyday make for the beginning of explorations and thus the beginning of new works.
