New ex­hi­bi­tions to ex­plore

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
