The following exhibition has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. Sept 9 to Oct 9 John Scurry – a lightness of touch pervades Scurry’s latest works. Exquisitely rendered objects are painted in scumbles of perfectly tuned tones, hovering around a colour note, barely visible yet vibrant with presence. These internal landscapes are landscapes of the mind; they open up a space of possibility and make room in a crowded world for the ineffable. Collected in State and Regional galleries as well as prominent private collections, we are delighted to bring these new major works together in this important exhibition.

Visitors are invited to contribute to the exhibition by considering and sharing their gallery experiences, thoughts and reflections on the walls of the gallery. Looking to the future, artist Kenny Pittock will use these responses as inspiration to create a new work as part of the opening exhibition at Dandenong’s new contemporary art gallery. As we prepare for the opening in early 2022, a new series of works will also be exhibited by artist Hung Lin documenting the development of the new facility, from the construction to the intricate details of the build. Through an installation of past exhibition posters, Past, Present and Future will also look back on some of the many wonderful exhibitions shown at Walker Street Gallery & Arts Centre. Events are subject to COVID-19 restrictions. Visit our website for updates.
