Ernst Schneider and Carmel Sayer: Life - Stages and Crossroads 7th May - 4th June 2017

Two talented yet ‘contemporary thinking’ Perth artists, Hillarys based chainsaw artist and sculptor Ernst Schneider and Mandurah based painter Carmel Sayer, are teaming up to present an exhibition with a difference.

Just as life is like a roller coaster with its ups and downs, twists and turns and often unforeseeable destinations, it will be your choice to scream or enjoy the ride. This also applies to this exhibition which combines cleverly arranged, unusual and distorted sculptures with uniquely expressive, colourful and compartmentalised paintings to create both vibrancy and harmony at ‘Life – Stages and Crossroads’.

Exhibition dates: 7th May – 4th June, 2017

Gallery hours: 10am – 2pm daily, 1pm – 5pm on weekends.

Exhibition opening: Sunday 7th May from 2pm – 4.30pm.

Free artist talks will be held by Ernst Schneider on Saturday, 13. May, 1.30pm – 2.30pm, and Carmel Sayer on Saturday 20. May, 1.30pm – ​2.30pm.

Paula Silbert from Paula Silbert Art Consultancy will officially open the exhibition and both artists will be available throughout the weekends of the exhibition and at the opening event.
