To Nov 19 Brett Whiteley: West of the Divide – works spanning four decades of the artist’s career.
Whiteley spent his formative years in Sydney and as a boarder at The Scots School, Bathurst. His artistic talent was noticed and nurtured by his teachers and he would spend weekends drawing, immersed in the countryside and the distinct seasons. He frequently travelled to Marulan, Lucknow, Oberon, Carcoar and Bathurst sketching and painting intimate landscapes. Whiteley found sanctuary and peace visiting the countryside; his senses heightened by the willow and poplar trees, meandering rivers, rocks and unique birds, all of which held significance for him since childhood. Iconic works ‘The lyrebird’ (1972-1973), ‘Marulan bird with rocks’ (circa 1980), ‘Summer by the River of Plums’ (1985-86) and ‘Autumn (near Bathurst) – Japanese Autumn’ (1987-88) are all on display.

June 22 to 27 Finite Gestures by Nada DeCat. Meditating on themes of social injustice and spirituality, DeCat explores painting as a series of finite gestures: a creation of ephemeral space where the occult encounters the everyday, and the mundane is placed beside the magical. Finite Gestures is, at the core, a bold and unashamed exploration of queer, East Asian identity in the West.
