South Coast Leisure Times : Autum 2016
www.southcoastleisuretimes.com.au South Coast 11 The breath between us, 2014, by Anita Larkin made of felt, brass, found objects. Wollongong Wollongong Art Gallery has a number of intriguing exhibitions on display over autumn. The gallery is the largest regional art museum in Australia and admission is free. Roy Jackson was a “painter’s painter”, a rare talent whose work spanning more than five decades explored and challenged the possibilities of representation and abstraction. Roy Jackson retrospective 1963 -2013, toured by the Drill Hall Gallery, ANU and the Roy Jackson Memorial Fund is on display until April 17. Phosphene explores our physical and spiritual connection with nature. From rituals of breath to the burial of bones, seeds, souls and cities, this collection reflects the layered alchemy of existence. This collaborative installation of image, word, performance and sound by Jacqueline Cavallaro, Tamryn Bennett, Tamara Elkins and Memo Batiz is on display until May 8. One Life, on display until April 4, is an immersive tactile installation by Rachel Park, that makes reference to Wollongong’s industrial past, and juxtaposes the gallery building’s hard and industrial qualities with lightweight paper forms. ARTEXPRESS on display April 23 – June 26, features outstanding works by 2015 Higher School Certificate Visual Arts students from schools in NSW. Steel Town: Port Kembla, on display March 12 – May 22, delves into the gallery’s art collection to celebrate the indelible impact of the steel industry on this area through paintings, drawing, photographs and assemblage. Valley, an exhibition by local ar tist Tori De Mestre, features paintings which directly reference the contour lines of Calderwood Valley; encompassing it’s many moods, with always the home cottage Callemondah central to external elements. On display May 14 - July 17 Penny Harris’ exhibition Writing Poetry for the Miners Of El Cobre, poetically reinterprets a historical narrative about the women who mined the El Cobre copper mine in Cuba during the 16th and 17th century.
