The Café Process Gallery

The Café Process Gallery began early in 2015 as an open and experimental project to create an ever changing gallery in the Waunifor café that would give us an opportunity to explore topics of interest in our ongoing work together, as well as add to the quality and specialness of the Waunifor Centre itself.

From the beginning we have gone for informality, making white boards on which to display our unframed work, with a firm decision made that the process is more important than any finished result. When we gather at the opening of an exhibition, it is the conversations we have together, sharing our inspirations and challenges, that give us the most encouragement. The exhibitors have included professional or trained artists as well as complete beginners who have never exhibited before, and it doesn’t seem to matter.

We are now into our 12th exhibition, titled ‘Creation's Dance’. The topics we have chosen have been around themes that touch all of our lives, such as ‘Portrait of an Attitude’, ‘Transformation’, ‘A Journal of the Many Small Lives’, ‘The Human Being’, ‘Holding an Essence’, ‘Transmission’, ‘A Tribute’ , ‘The Journey’ and our last one ‘Universal Patterns’. We have explored these themes in very individual ways, discovering different approaches to bring them alive inside ourselves.

We have not been able to include pictures or writings about all of the exhibitions but hope in the future to put more of the writings and highlights up on this site. If you are interested and would like to be involved in a gallery that is more inner journeying than finished result, and feel drawn to working with others into themes such as we have presented, do contact us, and join us in our art workshops and discussions.

" We are surrounded by webs and relationships, nothing actually on its own, a vast exchange of natures, substances and resonances, seen and unseen".
It is easy to lose touch with all those patterns surrounding our lives that repeat over and over, such as the design of a birds feather, the dance of a bee as it moves from flower to flower, the dawn and the dusk, the four seasons, positive,negative,and neutral, the list is endless. This exhibition was dedicated to those enduring patterns.
