Until 4 September 2022
10am – 4pm
Thursday – Monday
Seven artists observe layers of meaning attached to sites and artifacts encountered in the Collie region. They notice the mapping and movement of land, water and fauna as cultural formations echoed in processes of alteration in their own printmaking, drawing, and shaping of clay.
Seven Forms offers viewers an altered way of seeing familiar places and things. The artists create work inspired by Collie while bringing to the task their ability to produce material formations that connect industrial culture and the physical world. This is done in ways that resonate with concern at environmental disruption and optimism at opportunity for change.
The exhibition, sponsored by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, includes a series of workshops and artist/curator talks as the means of engagement with the local community.
