Freelance writing. Out of the urban clutter of the East and now situated on the Pittwater.
Published April 10th 2011
Contemporary, stylish and located in the new modernistic, controversial Cook Street building, 775 Gallery is now in Flinders as well as Red HIll. The gallery is a pleasant addition to the building, which was controversial as many considered it would not fit into the tone and feel of a small village like Flinders.

Compact yet stylish, Gallery 775 is located right next door to the Cook Street Co-op and just down from Hugh Evans studio, making Flinders a pitstop for art, food and fashion when meandering the towns and villages of the Western Port side of the Mornington Peninsula.

The presence of these two art meccas may add to what might have been lost with the new dense contemporary building that houses both.

You might say they have jumped in the Deep End and created or explored a space that will fulfill more than its promise. Which is to exhibit "evocative art by innovative emerging artists."

Gallery 775 opened a solo exhibition on April 9th, 2011 entitled Trent Edwards; The Deep End and it is one that is worth viewing and will take you on a journey of sea and light. This exhibition closes on May 1, 2011.

Trent Edwards is an artist from who creates works that I find visually impressive and capture the essence of the sea and light with clarity and simplicity, and also depth. He describes his work as "atmospheric seascapes," using acrylic and mixed media on ply board.

His work seems to embodied in this quote, which states that the "visual result captures fleeting moments of ambient beauty often bordering on the sublime."

775 Gallery displays paintings, photographic work, sculpture, jewellery and books.
