March 1 to 15 Overlanding by Bryce Anderson. Anderson is a young artist from the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Anderson’s work explores themes of the mundane and stereotypically detached cultures of rural and suburban Australia. In Overlanding, Anderson has looked to explore the idea of cultural clichés and masculine stereotypes through the use of sourced imagery, using dated documentation of Australian culture as a generalised view on what masculinity embodies within rural communities. The idea of the stockman has long retained an ideology of the pinnacle of Australian labour, and a summary of manhood.
March 18 to 26 On Paper, From Clay brings together the outstanding talent of 4 strong female artists – Jen Tyers, Katrin Coetze, Michele Morcos and Nicolette Johnston who present a poised, elegant and considered set of concepts drawn from their own experiences and present them for us on paper and from clay. Curated by Amber Creswell Bell.

Brown’s small and thoughtful black and white portraits of sporting clubs, stadiums, swimming pools and monuments contrast with the colour, energy and fervour of Australian sporting life.
Also, Down in the dumps by Glenn Sloggett. Down in the dumps continues Sloggett’s long-term love-affair with the unloved and the unloveable. For over 20 years he has elevated the burnt out and banal into something to be seen and celebrated, or at least acknowledged.
