To Sept 8 David Fairbairn: Drawn to Print and Aleph Geddis: hard/soft 2018. Line is the foundation of David Fairbairn’s art: from a density of line work, form emerges. In this exhibition of large-scale portraiture, Fairbairn experiments with etching. From the etched line – then corroded and transformed by the printing process – the face and personality of each subject is revealed. The sculptural works of Aleph Geddis live at the intersection of traditional methods and modernist forms, informed by the stylised naturalism of Pacific Northwest carving and the essence of Platonic solids.

Aug 28 to Sept 9 Clear and Distant View a solo show by Boyd McMillan. A focus of this show is the perception of monumental forms and the tension of depicting them. Perspective is often manipulated to create a curved space consistent with first hand observation of towering forms. Transparent and delicate media such as ink and watercolour, pastel and lightweight sculpture provoke consideration of natural form based on drawing. The Blue Mountains provide a rich variety of settings and environments to practise this observation and response. @boydmcmillanartwork
