Jo Breneger’s professional work as a sign painter crosses over into her artistic practice in this exhibition featuring equine-related art on a variety of media. Breneger strives to capture the quiet, sensitive interaction that is felt when humans are around horses, with each work being painted directly onto materials including timber, tin, lino and wallpaper. Breneger also works with words and names of places where she is painting, using old bits of buildings and farm ephemera.
Repast | A culinary journey through the collections
This exhibition explores the use of food as a motif throughout art history. Commonly used as subject matter within the still life genre, food often features as a focal point within the landscape genre (food production), as an individual object for study and an activity or prop for figurative works. Tantalise your tastebuds as you take a tour through the NERAM collections.
Dissenting Doilies | The women’s domestic needlework group
The Women’s Domestic Needlework Group (WDNG) was established in 1976 by Frances Phoenix and Marie McMahon with the aim of reclaiming the creative, but historically undervalued, practices of embroidery, knitting, crochet, lacemaking and needlework. . Dissenting Doilies shows the emerging feminist voice of the WDNG through ten screenprinted posters which accompanied
‘The D’Oyley Show’ exhibition of historic and contemporary domestic fancywork held in 1979 at the Watters Gallery in Sydney and which then went on to tour regional Australia.
