NATURAL SELECTION - A SOLO EXHIBITION BY AMANDA LOUDEN OPENED ON THURSDAY 20 OCTOBER 2016
This is Amanda Louden's 7th solo exhibition with Kirra Galleries which opened on Thursday 20 October 2016. To complement the amazing array of stunning pieces by Amanda the Gallery has become a native forest.
It has a warm and welcoming feel as will be attested by those who attended the opening evening. One of Amanda's avid collectors who lives in London sent an email as he was unable to join us at the opening and said, "I'm sure people will by enjoying Amanda's artistic magic. Her line in drawing and detailed finish is always admired by me. So many beautiful and breathtaking results of hard work." These sentiments were echoed by Maureen Williams who opened the exhibition - Maureen commented on Amanda's passion for her work and the subject matter, native flora, fauna and sea life. We do hope that you can drop in to the Gallery in the next few weeks to view the work - but if that is not possible we have included a link to a flip book which illustrates Amanda's current exhibition pieces.

Peter Kolliner OAM, Gallery Director together with Management and Staff of Kirra Galleries would like you to join us on Thursday 20 October 2016 at 6.00pm for the opening of an exhibition of new works by Amanda Louden.
Amanda was one of the first glass artists to be represented at Kirra Galleries - way back in December 1997 and we are delighted to have watched Amanda's career go from strength to strength and see her work purchased by collectors from all over the world. This will be Amanda's 7th solo exhibition with Kirra Galleries.
Amanda blows and then decorates her own glass vessels and she has made an extensive study of Australian flora, insects and marine life. Her interests are reflected in the endless array of designs with which she decorates her glass. Amanda has a worldwide following - her work is artistic, colourful and very collectable.
The exhibition will be opened by renowned Australian glass artist, Maureen Williams.
