Making a Mark Collective

In June 2007 the Fran Willis Gallery sadly held its last exhibition before closing its doors. Sharing the south wall of the gallery was the work of these four Victoria artists.

It was through the closing of one door - the Fran Willis Gallery - that we opened another by coming together to form Making a Mark. Over the course of the last year we have come to appreciate the extent to which artists can support, encourage, and facilitate the exhibition and creation of one another's work. We have beeen delighted to discover that we do, as we first thought, share an aesthetic, be it through our use of strong gestural marks, our willingness to experiment and have the courage to work with a variety of materials, or our determination to reveal our life experiences, and inner-most thoughts, through our work. As members of Making a Mark, we want to "speak" to a wide audience and by so doing share what we have created on and beneath the surface both as individuals and as a group of women artists."
