My ‘Coastal Walk’ Exhibition is inspired by the serene walking track from Lon Retreat through to the ocean. As I walk, I am acutely aware of my surroundings. My senses are ignited by the sounds of birdlife; the smell of the blossoms and the dampness of moss; the tee trees; and finally, the exhilarating salt air as I reach the final sand dune. All along, I am lured by the promise of sea spray from the pounding and mighty ocean. Kate Gorman

Feel completely at home with this large body of work, all inspired by the Bellarine Peninsula and the grounds of Lon Retreat. As Artist in Residence, Kate Gorman had unlimited time to explore the tranquil surround of Lon. As a long time visitor to Ocean Grove Kate was already familiar with the beauty that the Bellarine had to offer, but this time sharpened her focus and softened her palette within her painterly, abstract expressive style.

Kate has been a long term represented artist at The Hive Gallery and we are delighted to share this Coastal Walk Exhibition with Lon Retreat. Enjoy the full experience and take in all the works at both venues, only 10 minutes apart in Point Lonsdale and Ocean Grove. Lon Retreat is open daily for viewing and The Hive is Friday to Sunday or by appointment. 10-4pm at both venues.
