"Greenway Gallery* on Swan Street, Morpeth, began its existence as an Artist Run Initiative
in 2007. It was founded by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic artists who had met at Newcastle
Art School (TAFE Hunter Street Campus).

Caroline Lobsey (owner and director), along with Mandy Davies, Ileana Clarke, Roslyn Elkin and Karen Ma (the original committee members), opened Greenway Gallery as a contemporary exhibition space, so that emerging and established artists could show their work in a friendly and supportive environment. Gianna Fallavollita and Margaret Randall joined the committee in later years.

The gallery developed an excellent reputation through its professional ideals and quality exhibitions. Within a few years, it had become well established within the art community of Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. A wide variety of exhibitions (including solo and group shows) were part of the exhibition calendar. Painting, sculpture, photography and other forms of visual expression were represented over the years.

Since December 2013, the gallery has been in recess, but this exhibition, appropriately entitled Connection, brings together many of the artists associated with Greenway Gallery, and connects them once again."

(Greenway Artists, 2015)

*Greenway Gallery was named after the colonial architect Francis Greenway (1777 1837) with whom Caroline Lobsey has a family connection.

The exhibition will run until Sunday 30 August, 2015.
