2018 External EXHIBITIONS
Janet Tavener at Gosford Regional Gallery
- Janet Tavener and Rew Hanks: In the Ice, 2018
14 April to 20 May
During the residency Tavener photographed many of the vanishing glaciers and ice caves of Iceland. Her second series of work responds to the vulnerability of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway. Hanks's hand-coloured linocuts highlight the dramatic decline of the puffin populations of Iceland and the imbalance of marine ecosystems in the North Atlantic Sea caused by the high density of plastic pollutants.
Robert Boynes and Waratah Lahy at Canberra Museum and Gallery
- Celebration: 20 years of collecting visual art at CMAG, 2018
24 March to 17 June
This exhibition showcases the rich collections of visual art at the Canberra Museum and Gallery (CMAG). In its 20-year history CMAG has built a collection of objects with a unique focus, which reflects both the creative breadth of its artists and the historical context of art in the Canberra region – this corner of south-eastern Australia that includes the nation’s capital, the southern tablelands, the Monaro plains and a number of towns and hamlets.
The exhibition includes historical and contemporary Canberra region art by more than 100 established and emerging artists, representing CMAG’s holdings of painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, drawing, digital art, ceramics, glass, textiles, metalware and jewellery.
Peter Tilley at The University of Newcastle Gallery
- Seeing the Shadow, 2018
21 March to 14 April
For his PhD research, Peter Tilley examines the theory and philosophy of shadow, developing and utilising an array of materials, found objects, symbols and methods that enable the construction of shadows to visually or symbolically disclose fundamental traits and mnemonics of the ‘casting’ figure.
The resulting sculptures become complex representations that explore illusions of certainty, memory and imagination - the mysteries of the unknown - and the fundamental identity and attributes of the figure/self.
Todd Fuller at Gympie Regional Gallery
- How to Raise a Siren, 2018
10 January to 24 February
