Memento August 11 - August 25

Works in porcelain by Jill Loader in the SParc gallery.

This body of artwork explores the association between objects, memories and the artist's attraction to the Morwell Centenary Rose Garden.  "When I visited the rose garden in winter the colours had disappeared but the garden was full of organic, textured shapes.  While I sat in this winter rose garden I contemplated the idea that everything changes and there is often a desire to collect and keep objects to help relive memories."

formation June 9 - june 30

An exhibition by Christopher Miller that will focus on growth, colour and texture.

These works have been driven by how the physical nature of an object can shift based on our expectation and visual appearance of said objects. A shift in normality changes both the viewers’ expectation and perception of an object. The viewer is forced to question if they can look beyond the perceived surface qualities to appreciate the actual object in its role and value. Opening event on Saturday 9 June from 2pm.

Flourish Oct 21 - Nov 18

    Solo Exhibition by Caroline Graley

Flourish is an investigation into the lyricism of feminine spacial forms and line. Through an intuitive dance practice Caroline initiated a two handed drawing process as means to psychological and physiological integration, to achieve balance and wholeness.

Flourish is a collection of installation works which map an intimate engagement between body, emotion and subjective sensorial elaborations of space. These expressive abstractions are a feminine response to form and line. The works comprise pastel drawings, aluminium and wire sculpture and spacial installation.
Official opening at 2pm on Sat 21 Oct and an Artist Talk with Caroline at 2pm on Sun 22 Oct.
