Yesterday installed the second of my curatorial projects for Coorah Contemporary Art Gallery, Blue Mountains Grammar School. Entitled Gesture, the Exhibition brings together thirteen artists from Sydney and the Blue Mountains, across various paintings styles from abstract to realist. Artworks include paintings, ceramics, drawings, sculpture and embroidery.
Exhibiting artists examine the role or absence of gesture in their work and include Susan Baird, Anthony Cahill, Adrienne Doig, Kate Dorrough, Coco Elder, Clara Hali, Julie Harris, Josh Honeyman, Pollyxenia Joannou,
Mathew Lynn, Rowen Mathews, David Middlebrook and Neil Taylor, many of whom are represented by some of Sydney’s top Commercial Art Galleries such as Martin Browne (Adrienne Doig), The Hughes Gallery (Julie Harris), Art House Gallery (Susan Baird, Kate Dorrough) and Wagner Art Gallery (Neil Taylor) and Conny Dietschold Gallery (Polly Joannou).
The official opening is on Saturday 13th September from 2-5pm and you’re all invited
