Please join us and celebrate with the artist, Rehgan De Mather at the opening event of MNMLVMXML on Saturday 5th November between 6pm-8pm.
The Cowwarr Art Space has had a long association with Rehgan. Since his student days at Monash University Gippsland Centre for Art and Design Rehgan has been a part of our exhibition program and an active member of CAN Inc. and is represented in our stable of artists.
MNMLVMXML is curated from the new work Rehgan produced during his Appleton Street Studio residency.
Rehgan De Mather was the recipient of the 2011 Sandra Bardas Studio Grant. The grant is awarded based on the artist's work practice, direction, and work ethic. Rob Gould of Gould Galleries and Jeff Martin of Appleton Street Studios, conduct an initial assessment. The Bardas family makes the final decision from the short list. .." Rehgan's work is strong and confident and his use of found objects and recycled materials would have appealed to Sandra. His work is innovative, passionate and full of energy and his work ethic and dedication to his art was obvious from the outset." Jeff Martin Appleton Street Studios.
De Mather’s Appleton St Studio works are exhibited at the Cowwarr Art Space in 2011 and the Gallery 577 in Brunswick St Fitzroy North in 2012
