EXHIBITIONS

Christine Stewart
Prince Albert and Prince George visit the Blue Mountains
19 January – 5 March 2017

Artist Christine Stewart was intrigued by the curious Blackheath street name “Inconstant”.  Discovering it was the name of one of the five ships that brought the young princes Albert and George (later George V) to Australia in 1881, she then found a fascinating Journal of that three year trip. The other ships were H.M.S. Bacchante, Carysfort, Cleopatra and Tourmaline – all streets in Blackheath. This trip has  inspired a series of paintings to be shown at Braemar Gallery.

Kate Smith
Locomotion
19 January – 5 March 2017

Growing up in the Blue Mountains, Smith caught the train to school and, when older, into Sydney for work but can’t recall taking notice of the railway; commuting was just an unremarkable chore. Now Smith sees the trains as a great subject: they have a fascinating contradiction between beautiful precision and unattractive griminess.
Locomotion encourages the audience to take more notice of the ubiquitous, everyday things around them, as even a daily commute to work contains interesting moments. The drawings have been made with a range of material including charcoal, ink watercolour, graphite, pastel and coloured pencil.
