Dusk: Gregory Alexander

24 September - 16 October 2016

Opening event Saturday 24 September, 2pm – 4pm

Gregory Alexander, Dusk 2014, watercolour, 136 x 96cm. Courtesy of the artist.

In this series of works, Gregory Alexander scrutinises the seemingly mundane; from a level crossing silhouetted against an evening sky to a car pulling out of a side street at dusk.

These moody drawings and paintings of townscapes are embedded with layers of memory that weave complex associations, which are highly personal but also culturally universal.

Habitat: Annemieke Mein

24 September – 6 November 2016

Acclaimed Dutch-born Australian artist Annemieke Mein is recognised as one of the world’s foremost textile artists.

Habitat brings together a significant collection of Mein’s work that demonstrates her lifelong passion for raising awareness of the need to protect our natural heritage.

Her interest in insects, especially those which might not usually be considered beautiful, and her drive to capture the character and personality of her subject in its environment opens our eyes to its unique place in our world.

Deborah White, Ever-renewing delight 2014, Installation view at Linden Art Prize exhibition. Photographer: David Marks.

Native animals that dare to cling to their space in the face of urban development are reduced to the status of pest. As a counterpoint, Bayside artist Deborah White, presents a video installation inspired by shamanic practices that revere animal wisdom.

Deborah White’s art practice includes performance-based photography and video installation. Using humour and fantasy, she transforms personal experience to blur the boundaries between the material and immaterial worlds.
