Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery at the Hume Global Learning Centre – Craigieburn presents the works of emerging artists Amicus Atman and Emiliano Fernandez.
Mayor of Hume City, Councillor Carly Moore said both artists were selected to exhibit new work following the Emerge in the North Art Show 2019.
“Best in Show is an opportunity for both artists to exhibit substantial bodies of work exploring key themes from different cultural backgrounds, these artists employ deeply poetic and symbolic imagery to interpret the world around them,” Cr Moore said
“Hume’s gallery spaces provide opportunities for the community to experience artistic expression in a range of mediums and I encourage the community to support two emerging artists.”
Best in Show

Amicus Atman makes work informed by myth, diversity and psychedelia. His new series explores the purpose of being and how new understandings are generated from both constructed and discovered experiences.
Similarly, Emiliano Fernandez invites the viewer to find new ways to understand our fragile natural environment through his imagery which hovers between depictions of reality and imagined imagery drawn from the subconscious.
Emerge in the North, an initiative of Multicultural Arts Victoria, provides opportunities for independent artists to present their work in a curated context, while networking, collaborating and building strong connections across the area through the arts.
Both artists were selected to exhibit at Gee Lee-Wik Doleen by a panel of distinguished judges at Emerge in the North’s annual art exhibition titled ‘Meeting Point’ held at the Hume Global Learning Centre – Broadmeadows in August 2019.
