Art that’s in fashion

Beginnings: Painting by Samantha Lentini.

A fashion designer from Hume will showcase an inspiring array of paintings and drawings at an exhibition in Craigieburn.

Samantha Lentini is set to present her very first solo show, Beginnings, at the Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery, located at the Hume Global Learning Centre – Craigieburn.

The artist won a Hume Arts Award in 2015, and now produces highly-sought after garments through her own fashion company, s.L.c The Label.

Hume Mayor, Councillor Helen Patsikatheodorou, said Samantha was an extremely creative and talented woman.

“The images which Samantha produces initially look like great planes of colour and texture,” Cr Patsikatheodorou said.

“After a while, the observer tends to notice something quite amazing: Samantha has drawn intricate lines that detail natural forms and fabulous figures.

“Her artwork embodies wonderful patterns and spectacular colours, and the paintings and drawings will impress people of all ages.”

Samantha graduated from RMIT University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Design (Fashion).

The freelance artist regularly sketches the patterns that are printed on the clothes she designs.

Cr Patsikatheodorou said Council was proud to support the work of one of Hume’s most talented residents.

“While the exhibition will showcase a select number of Samantha’s paintings and drawings, the designer’s fashion work offers an everyday outlet for her art,” she said.

Beginnings will be presented at the Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery from Thursday 10 March 2016 to Sunday 8 May 2016.

The Hume City Council gallery will host a number of other exhibitions in 2016, including:

• Drawn and Quartered, a show of graphite drawings by Chester Vega; and
• Suburban Geometric, through which Dianna Wells will present artistic photos of Melbourne’s urban fringe.

All exhibitions are free to attend.
