Gallery One: Beverley Southcott & Matthew Schiavello – Southcott x Schiavello
This is an exhibition that resonates as a whole where Southcott x Schiavello consider their own photographic practices, as they collaboratively re-imagine, each other’s work.
Matthew re-cuts and re-assembles the images, forming harmonious and balanced compositions. Beverley uses a detailed layering process to add an ethereal beauty to the works.

Gallery One: David Gatiss – Telling Stories
Story telling is a collective of objects made in a variety of media.
Telling their own story
Once upon time stories
Visual illustrations of daily illuminations
Boats that don’t sail
Trees that don’t grow.
Black walls held up by thoughts.
Time spent between creation of ideas
and the creation objects.
The Canning Room: Charlotte Ivey – Lobe
Ivey’s process welds impulsive reflexes of dysphoric psychological states with intentional compositional choices. Out of this emerge strange, fleshy landscapes, from fragile pieces on glass to bold works whose strokes long to burst off the canvas—the artist invites the observer into states of a cyclically altering psyche.
2 Sept – 19 Sept 2021
Gallery One: Ashika Harper – It Was There and Now It Is Gone
It Was There and Now it is Gone, is dedicated to my family home in Wandella, NSW. My home was lost in the 2020 bushfires. This series merges my past and present experience with this place. It considers how new forms of reality can be created through the process of re-imagining memories.
The Canning Room: Ami Taib – Sans Function
Sans Function comprises a group of tongue in cheek ceramic sculptures where the application and techniques of wheel-thrown pottery are pushed beyond their functional intent. By presenting functional techniques outside of their expected place, artist and ceramicist Ami Taib presents a playful irreverence toward a medium steeped in tradition.
