NOTE ALTERNATE OPENING HOURS BELOW.
Combining works by print-makers Marina Bishop and Kelvin Taylor, sculptures by Peter Day, reverse painted glass by Wayne Pearson and other glass artists, this show explores the “Captain’s Pick” of 2017.
Each invited featured artist has their own focus…
Marina Bishop explores the landscape and says “I love scenes of the Australian coast and hinterland. I need to capture the feelings I have from these images. I don’t want to ‘freeze’ them photographically, but to portray the effect they have on me.”
The printmaking series produced by Kelvin Taylor focuses on the power garnered by popular figures viewed through the filter of the police mugshot.
Peter Day’s sculptures are “fictional intuitive and speculative. His sculptures often invite the viewer to explore the decayed beauty of an object and its history.”
Wayne Pearson’s current fascination and subject of his reverse-painted glass panels are common Australian birds. Blue wrens, magpies, pelicans and cockatoos feature in his magnificent paintings.
