Dorothy Filshie: Fish Out of Water

^^

When: Friday 5th October - Wednesday 14th November
Where: 101-115 William Street, Darlinghurst
Cost: FREE

Fish Out of Water is an exhibition of the textile object work of NSW artist Dorothy Filshie. Dorothy uses hessian, calico, duck and artists’ canvas plastered with old-fashioned gesso made from rabbit skin glue and whiting powder to create her sculptural fish. Her work is dictated by a love of food, textiles and art. Each work is hollow and is made from a pattern by cutting shapes from suitable fabrics, stitching the pieces by hand or machine, then shaping and stiffening them into three dimensional forms. Fish Out of Water is displayed in Object Space, a window gallery that is available for viewing 24/7.

When: Friday 5th October - Wednesday 14th November
Where: 101-115 William Street, Darlinghurst
Time: 11am-4pm
Cost: FREE

Sturt Gallery and Ernabella Arts present In These HANDS: Mara nyangangka, an exhibition of new paintings, ceramics, tjanpi weavings and punu from the artists of Ernabella, celebrating 70 years of Ernabella Arts. Forty-six years ago, five young artists from Ernabella Arts went to Sturt Gallery & Studios as part of a residency to learn new weaving techniques. To celebrate Ernabella’s 70th birthday, In These HANDS: Mara nyangangka tells the story of that residency, its impact on subsequent generations and offers a showcase of the contemporary work in painting, ceramics and tjanpi (native grass) weaving and punu (timber) work. In These Hands not only tells the historical story of the link between these two famous centres, it celebrates the long tradition of craft and design in Australia while at the same time being testament to the positive collaboration and understanding between an Indigenous and non-Indigenous cultural institution sharing that same passion for ‘making’.

Curating one of the world’s most successful travelling exhibitions since their inception. With over 30,000 school children attending the Australasian tour so far, BODY WORLDS Vital is positioned to schools as a life-changing unique opportunity to educate students on human biology and anatomy, more impressive than any biology textbook.
