This week I had the pleasure of discovering the Light Factory Gallery in Eltham, including meeting the galley director - the lovely Margot Tasca. Margot is a painter herself and keen to promote art and artists local to the Eltham area. She has sourced a really interesting, eclectic group of artists and curates exhibitions of works that will resonate with a wide variety of clients. AND I am thrilled to add that the majority of artworks I saw in the current exhibition were very reasonably priced.
I fell in love with these gorgeous prints from local printmaker Kate Hudson. They are a little more conservative than what I would normally favour but the colours are soft and bold at the same time and the subject matter & composition traditional yet quite modern. I have always been a big fan of Margaret Preston and they reminded me a little of her works.

The Light Factory Gallery has a beautiful display space and out the back, the cafe is Eltham's best kept secret spot for coffee & cake. I think you might be hearing more from me on this gallery!
