Harriet Body 'Yours', Robbie Howard and Karen Edin
Friday 21 January 2022
6:00PM - 8:00PM
Join us in the Gallery at 6pm, Friday 21 January to mark the opening of Harriet Body's exhibition Yours, Robbie Howard in Gallery 2 and Karen Edin curating The Window.
The exhibition Yours is the result of a year-long project between the artist Harriet Body and a group of seniors and children from the Goulburn community. Throughout 2021, Body facilitated a series of workshops inspired by the cyclical growth patterns found in nature, engaging participants in storytelling, art making and collaboration. In Body's major exhibition, Yours, the artist presents an new body of work spanning painting, ceramics, textiles and installation.
This project has been supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW. With thanks to Pejar Local Aboriginal Land Council for sharing their knowledge and providing significant consultation and advice.
In Gallery 2, Canberra-based artist Robbie Howard presents a new body of work, Forced Abstractions. Howard's works are bold, graphic and vital, utilising abstracted shapes and forms as the artist ‘search[es] for an essence’.
The Window is curated by Goulburn-based artist Karen Edin. Edin has selected works from the Gallery's permanent collection which explore the intricacies of material, ecology and memory.
Entry is free.
Bookings are essential and can be made here.
Please note, face masks are required.
