Jane will be present at the opening party, Thur 23 Oct, 6-9pm, and on weekends: Oct 25-26 & Nov 1-2, 12noon-6pm Saturdays, and 12noon-5pm Sundays. www.janemurdochadams.com ... more

first day (see Oct 23 for opening)
Avner Levona: Recall. Main Gallery. Recall, a collection of paintings using mixed media on wood board, is a solo exhibition by Avner Levona, a practicing painter and commercial photographer. Avner's work is inspired by and sourced through street art and the world of advertising, two entities that contrast visually and conceptually, yet merge seamlessly in his artwork. Rough, textured surfaces, in combination with stencilled images and refined geometric shapes, produce striking compositions, such as "The Dogwalker", and create the foundation for Avner's unique artwork.
