After an amazing and inspirational kayaking trip to Southern Raja Ampat off the West Papuan Coast, I’m looking forward to the year ahead! We kick it off with our first exhibitions ‘Sanguine’ and ‘Red – it’s not just a colour’ opening on 1st March, as well as a free pop-up jewellery making workshop, all part of THE RED PROJECT, a North Sydney Council Arts & Cultural event exhibiting artworks by 74 artists at 6 venues throughout the month of March, in celebration of creative women in North Sydney and International Women’s Day.
There’s also been an exciting new development with my ‘A Year of Time 1:30’ installation….stay tuned for details. The exhibition is on display in the gallery until 24th Feb, so there’s still a chance for you to participate. I’m looking forward to sharing 2018 with you!
1 – 24 March 2018
Opening drinks and artist talks Thursday 1st March 6-8pm.
Anita Larkin, Jenny Pollak & Margarita Sampson are three mid-career artists working in new media, found object & textiles; with work represented in major prizes and collections across Australia. In this exhibition they present new bodies of work responding to the idea of the ‘Sanguine’. Anchored in the body, their work is thoughtful, incisive and transcendent.

Love is in the air! Yes, Valentines Day is almost here and while we all deserve a special gift on occasions (and you can find heaps of very special ones at the gallery), I wanted to share a gift which doesn’t cost the earth…and that’s to ask your partner something new… like ‘what’s the most interesting conversation you’ve had recently?’ or ‘which talents do you wish you had?’ Another romantic idea could be to make your own wedding rings together. We have two locations available, North Sydney or the stunning Blue Mountains.Get in touch for details. Here’s to love!
See you soon.
