To Nov 19 West of the divide. Landscapes are key to our understanding of Australian art. Whiteleyís works combine elements of abstraction and realism in a lyrical and expressive manner. He fused an Asian aesthetic of perspective with a European sensibility to create a unique floating sensual landscape, with birds, nests, trees, rocks and rivers inhabiting a world founded on place and set in imagination and feeling. Drawings, paintings and sculptures based on areas from the central west of NSW – Bathurst, Sofala, Marulan and Oberon where Whiteley spent his formative school years and would return to several times throughout his career for inspiration.

July 19 to 30 Flourish by Sam Michelle. In her first solo show, visual artist Sam Michelle draws inspiration from music, art and interiors that give her a sense of joy.

This work explores her love of the still life genre, combining a warm, soft colour palette with her love of ceramics, flowers, textiles and paint.
