Old Stories, New Latitudes

Raewyn Proctor and Natasha Daniloff

18 September – 12 October 2019 

This exhibition explores the concept of narrative as related to family, culture, landscape and memory. Themes of fragmentation, past and present, the immigrant experience and the creation of a new life underpin this body of work.Through the use of mixed media, works on paper and canvas, found objects, memorabilia and artefacts, Raewyn Proctor and Natasha Daniloff draw on their disparate cultural backgrounds to present a body of work that references the objects and stories belonging to them.

The Body: Movement Light & Colour 

Ann Carney

18 September – 12 October 2019 

Ann Carney has been working as an artist in the Lane Cove area for over 30 years.  Her drawings and paintings explore the human form through colour, light and movement.  She is fascinated by the use of allegory in the depiction of the body and how it has been used throughout history as a political or moral code. One of the key pieces in the exhibition depicts the story of Adam and Eve with dynamic movement and bold colour. Ann’s version of this creation story reveals the embedded bias in the story.

BeacheSANDeserts: Mediations on the Margins
Peter Day

3-27 July 2019

Peter Day tears himself away from his prolific public art practice to show the paintings and sculptures that emerge after 53 years from his tutelage by early Pop Art star, Ken Reinhard and one of the earliest of artists to venture into Australia's deserts, Arthur Murch. The deserts turn up in Day's kaleidoscopic canvases, as do beaches – both often given an aerial view that references Aboriginal art. Reinhard's Popism can be felt in Day's post-Readymade sculptures.
