72 SCOOP SUMMER 2010
The Studio Gallery
We catch up with galler y owners Sue and Nigel Smith (right, with their
team), about this new addition to the South West art scene
Why did you choose to open a gallery in Yallingup? We’re both artists and
enjoy being a part of the vibrant art community in the South West. We also
wanted to provide a space to show a wide range of work.
What was the concept behind the design of the galler y? It was inspired
by Mies Van Der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion from the World Expo in 1929.
What sort of artwork is on display? The work of more than 30 Australian
artists – including West Australian-based Archibald finalist Peter Kendall and
prominent Eastern States artists Laura Matthews and Sophie Gralton.
What is a must-see exhibition happening over summer? Viewpoint
(February 19-28) will be an exciting exhibition by eight prominent Australian
female artists. We will also be presenting a live music series on selected after-
noons and evenings, including folk, jazz, blues and classical.
The Studio also has a restaurant – what’s on offer? Beautifully prepared
fine bistro-style cuisine by Chef Blair Allen, formerly of Voyager Estate.
There’s also a wide-ranging local, national and international wine list.
The Studio Gallery, 7 Marrinup Drive, Yallingup, (08) 9756 6371, thestudiogaller y.com .au.
Inspired by the ancient Sumerian story of Gilgamesh, artist Helen
Norton has produced a series of highly narrative paintings. These
brightly coloured, mythical works examine issues of materialism and
environmental consciousness. Online at helennorton.com.au.
