Photographer Greg Weight once again turns his eye to the spindly desert oaks, monolithic rock formations and red clay patterns of the Australian desert in his latest exhibition, his first exhibition at Paddington’s Australian Galleries since 2012. His last exhibition at the venue was a collection of photographs of revered Australian artist Margaret Olley, her work and her studio: the pair were close and were working together when she died unexpectedly in 2011. Sydney-based Weight rose to prominence during the early 1970s as part of Martin Sharp’s bohemian artists’ collective Yellow House in Potts Point, a group which included Brett Whiteley, Peter Kingston and George Gittoes. Australian Galleries, 15 Roylston Street, Paddington. Admission free. Inquiries: (02) 9360 5177 or online. Until March 28.
