10 March - 27 March

In Displaced, zoomorphic creatures inhabit a corner of post-war Europe. Through the creatures, Nina Keri explores her grandmother’s experience of war, displacement and the fracturing of maternal lines. “There is a photo of a Christmas play at the Russian Club. Four children dressed as various animals look out at us. Behind them stands a tall ominous St Nikolas in a smiling mask. Behind him a huge Russian flag fills the background. They are lit by a startling globe of light…

Diabolical Ceramicist, Kim Foale and Intrepid Artist at Large Philadelphia Hanson-Viney combine to bring you Desolata.

Doing Time, Oatlands Gaol Residency

3 May - 8 May

An exhibition of paintings that explores our relationship with time and history through the buildings we inhabit, preserve or abandon. A 2017 Glover Prize finalist, the contemporary realist Henrietta Manning, has been working in the Tasmanian Southern Midlands since September 2015 through the Oatlands Gaol Artist in Residence Program.  Painted from inside historical buildings, empty interiors that are atmospheric time capsules contrast with the often vibrant very personal interiors of private homes, while long thin landscapes give a sense of…
