May 12 to 15 Breakthrough Art Festival.
An initiative of Cancer Council NSW, the inaugural Breakthrough Art Festival pitches the beauty of art against a brutal and unexpected foe, cancer. The festival will showcase the creativity of some of Sydney’s most established, emerging and student artists.
Handed a blank canvas and issued with the sole instruction that their work be representative of “hope”, an action embodied by the Daffodil that dominates the charity’s iconic logo, hundreds of works have been created for the four day exhibition.
Made from the bodies of pastels, watercolours, jars of oil and the lenses of cameras, each creation is as personal as it unexpected and will be available for purchase during the festival’s duration for the sum of $150. Art devotees, bargain hunters and those simply passionate about the work of Cancer Council NSW, can secure their free ticket to the grand opening night by clicking on the following link:

In partnership with The Australian Ceramics Association, this exhibition explores ceramics’ present currency within the art world and the reasons it is of such interest to artists. The exhibition excavates the foundations of this interest and brings together artists, some of whom have careers with ceramics stretching back decades, and others whose engagement with it has irrevocably changed the way they work, what they make and how they make it. New works by Stephen Baxter, Stephen Benwell, Angela Brennan, Lynda Draper, Trevor Fry, Emily Hunt, Rupert Jack, Rachael McCallum, Sharon Muir, Jenny Orchard, Madeleine Preston and Dawn Vachon. Curated by Glenn Barkley.
