Penrith Regional Gallery & Lewers Bequest: Summer Exhibition Suite
Mandy Martin: Homeground (2 Dec – 26 Feb) | Alice Sciberras: Abstract Reality (2 Dec – 26 Feb) | The Lady & The Unicorn: Arthur Boyd & Peter Porter (16 Dec – 26 Feb)
Enjoy a visit to Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest as the Summer Exhibition Suite opens from Friday 2 December 2017, 6pm.
The Gallery’s summer program features work by Mandy Martin, Homeground; Arthur Boyd & Peter Porter, The Lady and the Unicorn and emerging artist Alice Sciberras, Abstract Reality.
Mandy Martin: Homeground, is a twenty-year survey exhibition concentrating on Mandy Martin’s deep unease about the landscape in which we live. Environmental issues relating to water security, the impact of the region’s coal-fired power stations and open cut mines are central concerns.
Each of the twenty works in the exhibition have been carefully selected, creating a suite of works that distil the essence of Martin’s practice since she moved to Mandurama in the Central West in 1995.
The survey includes examples of Martin’s collaborative practice including paintings with the indigenous artist Trisha Carroll and digital projections with the Canberra based artist and curator, Alexander Boynes.
Martin is one of Australia’s most important artists, with a career spanning over 40 years. She has had numerous exhibitions in Australia, Mexico and the USA and has exhibited in France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan and Italy. Her works are in many public and private collections in Australia including the National Gallery of Australia.
Mandy Martin: Homeground will be on exhibition until Sunday 26 February 2017 and will then tour to Cowra Regional Art Gallery and Orange Regional Gallery. This is a Bathurst Regional Art Gallery touring exhibition curated by Sarah Gurich.
