Group Exhibition

Rochefort Gallery, North Sydney

February 23 - April 1, 2018

Collection One: LAND AND SEA

"In this opening exhibition some artists are terrestrial, gravitating to the magnetic power of the earth. Others follow the intricate meandering line of river tributaries or identify with the secret depths and primal force of the ocean. There is no “typical Australian scene”, instead, our native forests and farmed paddocks all serve to patch together a contrast of extremes. "

Collection One will feature 18 artists and 61 artworks 

Barbara Campbell-Allen • Martin Campbell 
Susanna Chen Chow • Dana Dion • Joanne Duffy • Werner Filipich • Warrick Fuller • Ian Hansen 
Pamela Honeyfield • Sheila Lyne • Paul McCarthy

"89 Days" Art Exhibition

January 5-28th, Kidogo Arthouse, Bathers Beach, Fremantle

Fenians, Freedom and Fremantle Festival

January 5-28th, 2018

The “89 days” exhibition is a collection of new artworks from some of Western Australia’s best contemporary artists. The exhibition is a visual response to the poems and passages written by the Irish political prisoners (the Fenians) during the journey of the final convict ship to arrive in Australia, the Hougoumont, which landed in Fremantle on January 10th 1867.

While the literature that has inspired this exhibition was created on the journey to Fremantle, which lasted 89 days, it is the remarkable escape stories from Western Australia to the United States of several of the Fenians that has established the Fenian legend here in Western Australia.

Artists in Exhibition

Brad Durrant – Peter Barker – Sue Leeming – Joanne Duffy – Judy Rogers – Daniela Dlugcz – Peter Ross – Tanya Jaceglav – Ann Gee – Anastasia Komarnycki – John Mcintosh
