Rawdon Slater, Fashion, Fantasy, Glamour!
Fashion, fantasy and glamour. Three words to represent the newest exhibition at The Henderson Gallery by Rawdon Slater. Many of the pieces in Rawdon’s collection reflect his love of old movies and fantasy which has compelled him to paint a variety of characters and actors from these places that inspire him such as portraits of Yvonne De carlo and Audrey Hepburn aswell as characters from Doctor Who and Lord of the Rings. Rawdon sees and admires character, not necessarily beauty.
Come join us for a coffee, meet the artist and share in Rawdon’s fine art accompanied by a collection of one-off garments by Carmen Allen.
Rawdon’s exhibition at The Henderson Gallery is running for one month from the 15th of July up until the 14th of August and open with free entry to the gallery daily from 6:30am-3pm
Rawdon will be available in the gallery to chat to for the first three weeks of the exhibition at the following times:
Visual and Performing Arts Master Steve Kilbey is staging his first ever Australian exhibition at The Henderson Gallery.
Steve is songwriter and bassist for iconic Australian band The Church and is a double inductee into the ARIA Hall of Fame. He took up painting 18 years ago.
Titled ‘Eclectica’ Steve’s collection of 18 pieces has been a popular drawcard at the Gallery with red spots appearing from the opening night. Steve is revealing some of his new and earlier works in this outstanding solo exhibition.
While best known as a musician, Steve is also an accomplished visual artist and poet.
One of his early exhibitions featured 20 original works of art paired with original music and the spoken word. A collection of his paintings has also been released as a tarot deck.
Steve lives in Coogee NSW and loves hanging out with his kids.
Steve’s solo exhibition runs until the end of June.

Premise of The Henderson
gawaymbanha (Wiradjuri; ‘Tell to come, welcome’),
The Henderson, 92 Ernest Street, South Brisbane, opened for business on Sunday morning, 17th July 2016.
The Henderson is an artists for artists, 100% Wiradjuri, First Nations owned and we are self funded, operating within an empathic, self-determinate model of enterprise. As such we rely on sales of product and fee for service to fund our venture.
Our point of difference emanates from the basis that we are 2 x commercially successful, practising artists with a CEO whose experience is at the highest level of negotiation, EQ, and strategic operations in local, national and international enterprise.
We offer our attitude, example, standards, mindset, strategies, values, and vision to our contemporaries, members, supporters and greater community.
Our predominant focus is to support, promote, manage, exhibit, develop, advocate on behalf of, educate and mentor artists and audiences who would otherwise not have the opportunity.
We are specifically focused on working with First Nations artists, artists who are, or who were prisoners, first time exhibitors, and a diverse cohort of First Nations and non First Nations artists outside of these demographics, at local, state and international levels, whose work we love, and for whom we want success.
It is our intention that The Henderson is ‘birrang’ (Wiradjuri; Journey to another place), for our visitors, members, staff, artists and families, that it is a place where you feel you belong and that belongs to you.
