Ancient Lineage-The Path Travelled

Ancient Lineage – The Path Travelled is an extraordinary exhibition by Tina Cooper.

On some pieces within the exhibition Tina has collaborated with indigenous artist William Chambers. These pieces are called 'Wirrawongs' and focus on indigenous stories of family and history; these ideas depicted on the ancient medium of glass generate a “deeply felt response” resonating within each vessel.

The exhibition is now open and will run until Saturday the 4th June.

The Art of Margarette Looney

The Art Of Margarette Looney opened with quite a buzz, with Margarette’s paintings drawing in a crowd to get a closer look at her water-based scenes – some familiar places (Balmain wharf) to other unfamiliar, untold places that can only become destinations in the viewer’s imagination.

This intriguing element of Margarette’s paintings has continued to catch the attention of passer-bys. who cannot resist coming in to visit the individual ‘places’. For works that depict a very quiet, soothing atmosphere, they have created a lot of active interest…

The Art of Margarette Looney is closing this Saturday, the 7th of May, so make sure you don’t miss out.
