Event description

Description

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
Albert Camus


Come join us for the Opening Night of Autumn Selection at your regional gallery. It is a multi-layered exhibition of five Australian artists working in fabric, fibre, ceramics and painting, between heaven and earth. Our autumn artists are Kerry Johns, Frances Larder, Timna Taylor, Elizabeth Tinker and Glen Wilkinson.


In the Company of Trees - An Open Response is an exhibition of small landscape paintings by Kerry Johns working in the forests around Canberra and on the NSW South Coast. Kerry won the last EMSLA held at CHRG in 2016. Her subject matter is trees, bush, forests, and gardens although the substance of the show for Kerry is opening up her process for exploration – both by herself and by visitors.

Frances Larder offers The Silent Past of the Buitenkampers - a multi-media exhibition that explores the experiences of the Buitenkampers, people of mixed Dutch and Asian descent who were forced to flee their homes due to war, occupation and the Indonesian National Revolution.

Formerly a painter, Timna’s ceramic work draws inspiration from the Australian landscape, especially her forest home near Grafton. Timna makes pottery that brings together her love of painting with the idea that art can be held in your hand.

Elizabeth Tinker’s Cloudscapes series of paintings question whether we take the time to properly look, experience and feel the scale and power of nature.

Glen Wilkinson has called his collection Utilities - an exhibition of utilitarian vessels and forms that draw attention to the colour, texture and other overlooked aesthetic qualities of discarded fibre commonly found in garden waste.


Please join us for light refreshments at the opening of Autumn Selection.

This is a FREE event. However, bookings are recommended.


The exhibition will run 11 May – 7 July at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery

Please see our website for the accompanying workshops.
