2013 Exhibitions

TALL POPPY SYNDROME. Photographs by Amy Stein & Stacy Arezou Mehrfar
27 November – 21 December
OPENING Thurs 28 Nov 6-8pm
Does the idea of tall poppy syndrome even still exist in Australia?  In 2010 two American women photographers headed out across the state of New South Wales to discover for themselves and record in what they found in photographs.  What resulted was a the launch of this amazing book and a debut exhibition in New York at ClampArt Gallery in January 2013.  It is very exciting to have this show now debut in Aus, firstly in Melbourne before touring around the rest of the country (dates to be announced).

GROVE. Photographs by Jane Burton-Taylor
14 November – 01 December
OPENING Wed 14 Nov 6-8pm
In the south of Italy, near Puglia, olive groves stretch in every direction. Some are over 1000 years old (listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Register) with younger groves 200-600 years old (protected by regional law). All tended by hand for over 40 generations, this exceptionally beautiful exhibition reflects on the importance of nurture and care.  Jane photographed these groves over a period of 4 years and through every season.  There will be some video footage also. A restorative and beautiful collection of photographs – all shot on film and combined as triptychs.  Digital prints.

LOST IN PLACE.  Ten Photographers who have an attachment to Place

OPENING LAUNCH Tue 05 November 6-8pm
ARTISTS:  Catherine Cloran, Digby Duncan, Caroline McLean-Foldes, Helen Grace, Sally McInerney, Ian Provest, Suellen Symons, Chris Round, Lynn Smith, Niobe Syme
What is it about place in general that holds resonance for each of us? Ten Arthere artists approach the notion of place very differently.  Gritty, soft, empty, busy, strange, romantic, delicate, beautiful, observant – all evocative of memory and places we may feel we have all visited or passed through.
