ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

about-exhibition

DATES & TIMES

18 April - 18 June 2021

Open Daily: 10am - 4pm

The Associates are an affiliation of artists, representing a variety of disciplines, exchanging and sharing the knowledge and resources central to their art practice, its progress and professional career development. A Stone to Strike and a Rock to Stumble Over is a group exhibition of works by fifteen of The Associates in various media that includes: acrylic on aluminium, canvas and wool, flax, found objects, linoleum, oil on linen, acrylic on silver leaf panels, pencil, photography, pit-fired stoneware and hand-spun wool and watercolour.

A Stone to Strike and a Rock to Stumble Over acknowledges the irony of the distinct nature of each artist’s work cultivated within an affiliation of artists, and the reality of an artist’s practice as an open-ended journey that perpetually ebbs and flows between hesitation and realisation. The participating artists are: Sarah Anderson, Janneth Gil, Karen Greenslade, Lee Harper, Sarah Harper, Mikyung (Amelia) Jang, Viv Kepes, Stephanie McEwin, Gaby Montejo, Gaby Reade, Olivia Isabel Smith, Mark Soltero, Nicki Thorne, Akky van der Velde and Susanne van Tuinen
