New exhibitions to explore
Horsham Regional Art Gallery will showcase two new exhibitions until December 10.
The gallery launched Seeing Voices and Exposed: Perceptions in Photography earlier this month.
Gallery director Adam Harding said Seeing Voices brought the best in Australian and international contemporary art practice to Horsham.
Seeing Voices uses the Monash University collection as a springboard for thinking through the voice and how it is visualized, employed and reimagined in contemporary art. “Along with artworks selected from the collection, the exhibition features loans from Australian and international artists,” Mr Harding said.
“The exhibition encompasses drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and video.”
Exposed: Perceptions in Photography features work from the gallery’s education program.
“The exhibition is the outcome of our extension activities for students with an interest or talent in the arts,” Mr Harding said.
“Students in years 10 to 12 from Horsham, St Brigid’s, Dimboola, Nhill, Marian and Stawell colleges participated in a six to nine-week after-school program in the areas of English, visual communication and design and art-photography.”
On Friday Wimmera people joined gallery leaders for morning tea to explore the exhibitions.
The exhibitions are free to explore and are open on Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, Saturday from 11am to 4.30pm and Sunday from 1pm to 4.30pm.
