CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Elizabeth Rose
Elements

10 June – 4 July 2021

Elements draws us into the worlds encapsulated in lustre glazed ceramic work. Local ceramicist, Elizabeth Rose, synthesises her intuitive and alchemic understanding of mineral compounds to create works that reflect the exquisite formations of rocks and crystals on structured, organic vessels

The exhibition features familiar form, juxtaposed with the complexity of colour and texture which reminds us of the fragility and innovation of the natural world.

Jennifer Murray
Pneumothorax Suite

10 June – 4 July 2021

Pneumothorax Suite presents a series of gouache paintings by Jennifer Murray, created in response to events that took place over 2019 and 2020: the bushfire space-filled skies of Sydney and the Blue Mountains, the COVID Pandemic, and the subsequent health impacts experienced by the artist. 

Murray focuses on themes of escapism, fresh air, the joy of being among nature and the detrimental effects of high density urbanisation. The works are diverse with a common evocation of a romantic response to nature, semi-rural life and Arcadian themes in painting.
