Indigenous art

Perth’s Six Sea­sons Gallery, part of the Art Gallery of Western Aus­tralia and named af­ter the Noon­gar six sea­sons, is now open: an Indigenous-fo­cused space ded­i­cated to the dis­play and in­ter­pre­ta­tion of Abo­rig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Is­lan­der art. Its open­ing ex­hi­bi­tion, Out­side: Mat­ters of the heart in Indigenous art, ex­am­ines the beauty and sig­nif­i­cance of the land through the eyes of Abo­rig­i­nal artists. art­gallery.wa.gov.au

Grand plans

Syd­ney is set to have its arts game sig­nif­i­cantly raised when the Art Gallery of NSW’s ex­ten­sion is com­pleted – slated to be in time for the gallery’s 150 year an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions in 2021. A cash in­jec­tion of $224 mil­lion from the NSW gov­ern­ment has been con­firmed for the pro­ject, Syd­ney Mod­ern, and will see the gallery dou­ble in size. art­gallery.nsw.gov.au

Small pack­ages

Can­berra’s new­est gallery is also its small­est. The gallery of small things (GOST) opens on 27 Septem­ber to show­case the works of emerg­ing artists and mak­ers in­clud­ing tex­tiles, ce­ram­ics, paint­ings, pho­tog­ra­phy and jew­ellery. face­book.com/gallery­of­s­mall­th­ings
