Description


Sophie Hardcastle's Antarctic Art Exhibition, Deep Silence.


Fresh from the Antarctic, where she travelled with Chimu Adventures, renowned Australian author and artist, Sophie Hardcastle has created a powerful, sublime body of work inspired by her experiences at the end of the earth. Her art draws on the indescribable power that Antarctica presses upon its visitors, the way the landscape leans in, an impression that travellers find difficult to put into words, yet leaves them breathless and wanting for more. Hardcastle’s experience of deep silence in Antarctica, a silence punctuated by the epic sounds of ancient ice calving, is the primary inspiration for this body of work. With paintings, poetry and a series of photographs shot on film, Hardcastle has captured Antarctica in a way never seen before. As previous visitors to the icy continent say, 'Sophie has come the closest we have seen to describing the indescribable, it seems it takes art and words to master that conversation'


This exhibition has been created to support a formidable Australian charity, Love Your Sister, raising funds for cancer research and we're thrilled to announce that Samuel Johnson OAM will be present for the exclusive opening. 50% of all profits will be donated to Love Your Sister.


Also gracing us with their presence is Sara Jean and the City Gents, Sara is a swing singer and fellow Antarctic traveller, she and her swing band have offered their time to spice up this incredible night with their stunning tunes.


There will be drinks and nibbles available on the night, formalities will be concluded by 8:30 but we welcome you to join us in chatter and tunes until 10.


We look forward to welcoming you to, what is set to be, the most exclusive, unique and entertaining art exhibition of the year. Please reserve your FREE ticket now as no entry will be permitted without it.


*NOTE TICKETS WILL BE ISSUED ON A FIRST IN BEST DRESSED BASIS. IF THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT PLEASE PUT YOUR NAME ON THE WAITLIST AND WE WILL ADVISE IF A PLACE BECOMES AVAILABLE.
