Build Rebuild, at the Lone Goat Gallery

Build | Rebuild: Northern Rivers Ceramics, After the Floods is an exhibition bringing together the incredible talent of local ceramic artists in the Northern Rivers, who were all affected by the major flooding events in the region earlier this year.

It includes work by local artists: Luke Atkinson, Stephen Bird, Phaedra Davy, Raven Esque, Penny Evans, Brooke Jenkins, Gudrun Klix, Wally McGregor, Antoinette O’Brien, Anna Parsons, Lucy Be Phillips, Miriam Salomon, Avital Sheffer and Jacqui Sosnowski.

Build | Rebuild presents works by artists in all stages of their careers and showcases the breadth and vibrance of ceramics in the region – from the beauty of functional, everyday objects to impressive sculptural forms.

The recent floods impacted each of these artists in different ways. Artists lost studios, equipment, materials, artworks, their livelihood, places of learning, homes, their local supplier, and much more. Out of this devastation many artists have sought out the creative process as a healing balm to the chaos, perhaps a way to process the experience.

It offers the community a way to celebrate the fruits of creative labour through, and despite, these times, and to honour the processes involved in rebuilding.

Showing at Lone Goat Gallery until 26 November. www.lonegoatgallery.com
