The negative photographs used in this exhibition were taken by an unknown group of about four men on a short visit to the Blue Mountains around 1930. It appears that they shared a camera to photograph each other posed at various tourist sites they visited on a clear sunny day in the mountains.Find out more »
Sally Campbell’s Running With Stitches exhibition celebrates the art of hand-stitching. From ancient times in India, women would stitch together and patchwork cloth from rags. Kantha embroidery from Bengal became the most famous. You can see the running stitch on my handwoven quilts, cushions and scarves from Bihar, Bengal and Bhuj in Gujarat.Find out more »
Composing Earth and Sky brings together sculptural works that explore concepts inspired by natural environments and our personal connection to them.
Concerned with humankind’s detachment from the natural world, the artists use materials that are formed in the earth and grow towards the sky to embody this dilemma. With their hands and hearts, they work with their material’s innate qualities to co-create forms that respond to their own environment and personal stories. These are inextricably linked to their landscape - both earth and sky.Find out more »

Fire, flood and Covid have characterised the last few years - it’s been a tough time. Our house on the South Coast was surrounded by fire in January 2020, devastating the bush for miles around and traumatising communities. My daughter’s house was inundated in this year’s floods that affected so many in northern NSW and southern Queensland. And the lockdowns caused by the pandemic meant that my PhD exhibition in 2021, representing four years of work, couldn’t be seen by friends and family (not even by the examiners!) The pandemic had a huge and detrimental effect on artists everywhere as exhibitions were cancelled and creative momentum came to an abrupt stop. I responded to this time with the sculptures and embroidered paintings in this exhibition. They are all made of repurposed materials, a reflection of my effort to have a sustainable practice.Find out more »
