Opening Friday Reception on May 1, 2015 - 5:00 - 8:00 pm
Show will run from May 1- 30, 2015
The Beloit Fine Arts Incubator is pleased to announce Australian born artist, Derek Hambly will be the featured artist during May. Born in Melbourne, Hambly's art set him on a journey where he found himself and his truth about art. From his university years of loving the masters, he began to study himself. This led to developing his landscapes into abstracted landscapes, and then into hard-edge abstraction. From there, he went back to the beginning and discovered in his landscapes shapes, symbols and movements of the forces that nature kept offering. They eventually became the ideas and concepts for his present abstract expressionistic paintings.
Arriving in the US in 1999, Hambly opened his artistic career here with a solo exhibition at The University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. A rapid-fire succession of shows throughout the east coast and Midwest followed. Some of Hambly's recent exhibitions include solo shows at Steve Martin Galleries of Miami and New Orleans. Other shows during this period include Gruen Galleries of Chicago and Caelum Gallery in New York City. The Madsison Capital Times Newspaper reports: "The Australian-born painter wields his talent and unabated energy as one of the most impressive abstract artists to hit the United States in years".
Today Hambly has his studio and gallery in Jefferson, Wisconsin.
Please join us for this opening reception where the artist will be on hand to discuss his art and answer questions. The event is free and open to the public.
