In a new group show, Beinart Gallery offers a survey of artists working today in Australia. “Flow,” running through Dec. 22, includes sculpture, paintings, drawings, and more. “We are passionate about raising the profiles of artists based in Australia to an international stage through our worldwide network of collectors and enthusiasts,” the gallery adds.
The muse was a well-known component in the work of Picasso, Dali, and Kahlo. A new show at Rehs Contemporary Galleries shows how this tradition continues in the work of Linda Adair, David Bowers, Randalf Dilla, Amanda Greive, Hiroshi Furuyoshi, Ira Reines, and Michael Van Zeyl, even in unexpected ways. Bowers, for instance, cites his wife as integral to his work, while combining components of her with influences from historical masterworks. The show runs Oct. 27-Nov. 16.
