UPCOMING EXHIBITION - RECHERCHE - WENDY EDWARDS

RECHERCHE

DATES – 10 October 2020 – 8 November 2020

LOCATION – 25 Main Street, Huonville

 It will be difficult to describe my feelings at the sight of this solitary harbour situated at the extremities of the globe, so perfectly enclosed that one feels separated from the rest of the universe. Everything is influenced by the wilderness of the rugged landscape. With each step, one encounters the beauties of unspoilt nature.

……….Bruni d’Entrecasteaux 1792

Recherche. Say ruh-shair-shey

Or say choice, exquisite, inestimable, invaluable, priceless, prized, treasurable, valuable.

 My art practice and love of nature has its foundations in my childhood. Treasured memories of long summer camping/fishing trips with my family.  Then later as an adult living on an exquisite timber boat, held safe by the glowing varnished hull of celery top pine.  Choosing to learn to sail in the southern Tasmanian waters before venturing to the tropics. Prized walks in the south west.  And now living in a southern forest surrounded by nature, always birds close around and filling vistas of land and sea.

Those of us familiar with Australia’s most southerly all-weather anchorage can all easily imagine the awe that the French explorers felt on arrival in Recherche, and we hear Bruni d’Entrecasteaux speaking to us, telling us that what we see as familiar is of inestimable value, for all people and all time.

We have translated d’Entrecasteaux’s name into our language as ‘research’. Research requires careful noticing. But it is hard to notice small things, when we think we are familiar with what is in front of us?  I like to upscale birds to help our noticing, to show how exquisite they are, while precariously balancing other creatures to draw attention to the fact that all of their futures depends on us preserving what is, literally, priceless.

UPCOMING EXHIBITION - INSIDE OUT - CURATED OPEN SUBMISSION EXHIBITION

INSIDE OUT

DATES – 12 November – 7 December 2020

LOCATION – 6 Church St, Geeveston

Chosen as the inaugural theme Inside Out reflects the unique advantage of the professional exhibition space that is ARTBOX. The internally lit professional exhibition space provides 24-hour public viewing of its displays, of its inside to the outside, through its six wall to floor windows.

The theme is topical as it can also be seen as a response to current times when people are spending longer inside than out due to covid-19. The theme is to be regarded as a starting point and is expected to be broadly interpreted through materials or subject matter.

Inside Out is curated by Henrietta Manning and supported by the Regional Arts Fund.
