The other two exhibitions are by Bangalow artist Hilary Herrmann, called ‘The Voyage’, and Heather Matthew’s ‘I Was Here’, which celebrates the ‘tagging’ of graffiti artists and ‘the tradition of proclaiming existence at a geographical place in time’.

It consists of artworks created on a daily basis in concertina artist books which are further up-scaled onto square canvases.

The exhibitions are on until 2 April.
