Steps Gallery

Steps Gallery is a purpose built exhibition space right on Lygon Street, Carlton. The Gallery is owned and has been run by the Meat Industry Employees' Superannuation Fund since 1992.

It is within walking distance of Melbourne's central business district and attracts a lot of passing pedestrian traffic. The gallery's entry is through the foyer of one of the city's most acclaimed modern buildings, its highly polished parquetry floor and the floor-to-ceiling glass doors open into a glassed-in courtyard coffee shop to create a vibrant and inviting space for the exhibition of work on walls, or small three dimensional works.

The Steps Gallery is located Ground Floor 62 Lygon Street, Carlton South near the Trades Hall building. Melways Ref 2B F11.

Cheryl Osborne & Zahidah Zeytoun Millie

Saturday, August 27 to Sunday, September 11

The works I present express perceptions of self, my family, our ecology and the universe. Somewhere in these four systems I exist, ... and in all four, my perceptions evolve through beauty, happiness, conflict and connection. Underlying all is the destruction of humanity and land in my country Syria.

Zahidah Zeytoun Millie |
"Coffee Morning, 2015, Acrylic colours, texts on canvas, 138 x 198cm"

Imagined dreamscapes explore Osborne's interest in the connection of eastern and western spirituality and mythology. Representations of the female figure as self, sentient beings and nature frequent the narrative of peace. To reach synthesis the work is layered in concept, subject and process. Luminous colour suggests the divine's presence.
