A new exhibition exploring the landscapes and power of Central Australia will open at Murwillumbah’s Small Works Gallery this Friday (January 14).
Occupy, will feature the works of Pottsville artist Heather Matthew, who has exhibited internationally, and Samantha Tannous who is well known for her award winning textile artworks.
The works in the exhibition were created while the pair were undertaking a joint artists residency in Central Australia.
The pair collaborated on place-making activities in the desert, such as paper making with native grasses, printing and imprinting from the land and many found objects that lay around the cattle station where they stayed.
Their resulting artworks, separate yet cohesive, include works on paper, mixed media collage, artist’s books and more.
The artists are hosting several exciting events during the exhibition, so visitors can engage with their creative side while discovering the 30+ works that make up the show.
There will be a free opening night on Friday 14th January, from 5pm – 7pm with a short artist talk to introduce the show.
The Small Works Gallery is located at 10-12 Commercial Road, Murwillumbah.
