Yes, the Melbourne City Library at 253 Flinders Lane supports emerging artists and has an exhibition space on the first floor of the library. This library is just around the corner from DeGraves Street, so after a coffee pop up to the first floor and see what ‘s on.
Sarah Ubik’s exhibition is titled “SOMA”; the images are strong and evocative portraits and figurative images. Sarah “explores humankind’s relationship with nature, reproduction, sexuality and femininity.” I love that she captures a moment in time in the face of her subjects – laughter, huh, what did I do? a deep breath, a relaxing sigh. This is Sarah’s first solo exhibition and includes works in watercolour and in oil paint. The exhibition is on until 23rd August.
