Four talented artists from diverse backgrounds are coming together in unity as landscape painters to showcase their unique perspectives on the beauty of the natural world. The upcoming collective art exhibition, Fusion, is set to captivate art enthusiasts and patrons of all walks of life. This extraordinary event not only promises to be a visual treat but also aims to support a noble cause.


The artists - Vania Goshe, Winston Hassall, Audrey Mercieca, and Andrew Smith - have joined forces to create a mesmerizing display of landscape art that reflects their shared love for the environment. Fusion is a collaborative effort that will leave a lasting impression on all who visit.

Vania Goshe, originally from Bulgaria, is a versatile artist who studied at the New Bulgarian University in Sofia, graduating in Cinema, Television and Advertising. She has been actively pursuing her artistic interests, finding inspiration in various aspects of Maltese life and culture since settling in Malta in 2008. Goshe's art is a captivating mix of different media that expresses her deep appreciation for Maltese traditions and activities.

Winston Hassall, a British artist with decades of experience, has been a prominent figure in the Maltese art scene since 1979. He is renowned for his mastery of watercolours but also works with various other mediums. Hassall's self-taught, versatile approach focuses on capturing the local environment, making him a beloved figure among art enthusiasts.

Audrey Mercieca is known for her exquisite watercolour paintings created during her en plein air outings. With a background in art studies both in Malta and Florence, she brings a unique perspective to her work. Her paintings reflect her ability to experiment with different media while finding inspiration in her surroundings, providing viewers with a sense of tranquillity.

Andrew Smith, another British artist in the group. Smith specializes in the en plein air genre of landscape artwork. His watercolour paintings beautifully depict Malta's architecture, lush rural areas and seascapes. Smith's use of watercolour and gouache interchangeably allows him to adapt his style to the mood and subject of his artwork.

Art lovers and enthusiasts are cordially invited to the opening night of Fusion on Friday, 6 October at 7pm at the Wignacourt Museum in Rabat, Malta. The exhibition will continue to inspire and delight visitors until 28 October.

Fusion is a collective art exhibition featuring the works of Vania Goshe, Winston Hassall, Audrey Mercieca and Andrew Smith. These four artists, each with their unique background and perspective, come together to celebrate the beauty of landscape painting.

Supporting Fidem Charity Foundation

In a spirit of generosity and giving back to the community, Fusion is proud to announce its support for the Fidem Charity Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the exhibition will be donated to this worthy cause, further emphasising the artists' commitment to making a positive impact beyond the canvas.
