UpTown Gallery presents Illumination and Brilliance.  This show explores the splendour of light, reflection and colour to enlighten the inner mind.  Five featured artists use a variety of media:  coloured pencil, metal, oils, acrylics and photography to explore the emotional and thought provoking effects of light.


Barbara Di Renzo creates eco-friendly, mixed media art and jewellery based on recycled metals. She is inspired by colour, architecture and nature and interprets this through her colourful artwork and contemporary jewellery designs. 

Sanela Dizdar, a constant self challenger, explores some whimsical characters and emotions in her unique graphite drawings on canvas. Her oil paintings reflect brilliance in human interaction, age and everlasting love.  Join her in her drawing and painting classes at UpTown Gallery and in her art studio. 

Mary Lou Hiller uses transparent layers of acrylic paint to interpret the transformative effects of light on everyday scenes and objects.  Unusual compositions and attention to detail mark the originality of her work.  

Cathy Pascoe has been fascinated by light and shadow for her entire life. Whether experimenting with graphite pencil for portraiture or exploring the amazing potential of artist‐quality coloured pencil, her constant focus has been to interpret the myriad patterns of light and shadow. 

Adrienne Zoe is a creative photographer who explores light and reflections.  Some images are painterly, others surreal, and many are complex and colourful.  Her goal is to engage the audience with images that demand reflection and contemplation.
