We are delighted that Amili Gelbman, accomplished artist from Israel, will be working at the Centre for two weeks in February. She is hoping that while she is at Ross Creek, she will be able to work with the local community, and we invite participation. Please join us on Sunday, February 24 to meet her, see the work of her collaborators and the work she has created at Ross Creek, and make your own work alongside her!
Description of Amili’s project:
I am working within the conceptual topic of ‘identity’. My work examines questions of time and place in art-dependant spaces and how these bring out what is preserved deep within ourselves. For me, art is a language without limits which has the power to convey symbolic meaning and stretch the flexibility of internal boundaries to infinite points.
My objective :
I would like to study different frames of life in stretching my artistic boundaries, through research in my art works.
During my residency :
It is important to me that I have the opportunity for open studio & gallery time to interact with local artists, students, school pupils and the general public .
I invite students, teachers, artists, and the general public to join me for a workshop (to be scheduled). It is important to me that I be inspired from the location and the people and I would be very happy with the possibility of creative collaborations with local artists whose work, along with my own, will be displayed in an exhibition at the Ross Creek community Gallery.

:The theme of the exhibition
Tama Exhibition: “Identity, dream and memory”
“And I Couldn’t Say” group of artists is a puzzle characterized by a dialogue with artist identity, with immortalizing a defined point in time between the past and the present.
This group exhibition reveals the innermost feelings of a person as well as exploring the outside world and how it has its impact on an individual.
In “Identity, dream and memory”, the artists have extended each of these concepts into their art practice. The artists work is a cathedral of contemplation, a place to discover riches of imagination and insight to techniques and materials. “Identity, dream and memory” artworks emerge as a symbols for a range of meanings and connotations, personal and private as well as public and societal,and the potential to unveil the meaning of things and not their appearance;
for in this profound truth lies their true reality.
I believe the future of our civilization requires full recognition of the place of the artist. If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow the vision wherever it takes them. So seeing these works exhibited is like looking at oneself – in the mirror of art.
