Jodi Woodward, give me a boat that can carry two 2022, folded paper, charcoal and Melaleuca tannins, courtesy of the artist.

Artist Jodi Woodward has her exhibition opening at the Lismore Regional Gallery with an artists talk tomorrow night. 

Her exhibition, How much art can you store under the bed, deconstructs and reconstructs past drawings and works on paper into new reimagined artworks investigating materiality and residual marks. 

You can join the opening and artist talk, this Thursday, 24 August, at 5pm for a 5.30pm start, at the Lismore Regional Gallery’s pop-up space – 46 Magellan Street, Lismore. 

‘In this new series, the artist questions our relationship to the environment, which she invites into her process by exposing the works to the elements and the natural dying characteristics of native trees,’ said spokesperson for the gallery. 

‘The work continues her exploration of the unseen labour of the artist, duration, persistence, perseverance, and chance.’

This is an Auslan-interpreted and wheelchair-accessible event, contact the gallery if you have any access requirements.
