Opening Night | Assembling Parts For A Bigger Picture

Past Event


The Geraldton Regional Art Gallery invites you, your friends and family to the opening on Assembling Parts For A Bigger Picture on Friday night the 12th of October from 6PM. This exhibition presents new works from West Australian artists Bruce Slatter, Nicole Slatter, Susanna Castleden and Bevan Honey.

Assembling parts for a bigger picture is an exhibition of works that examine the interconnection between place and its physical and atmospheric materiality. Through an engagement with familiar and distant scenes and objects, works in this show include large-scale drawings, paintings, prints and sculptural forms that honour the process of their construction. This exhibition includes collaborative and individual works that have arisen from a long-standing respect and support of each other’s practices and a shared interest in making. Ideas often evolve from conversations around a kitchen table or in a shed - central to these conversations is always the importance of studio practice and its relationship to ideas about place.

Generated through a collective understanding of making, collaborative projects in the past include works that have been exhibited at Project Space in Melbourne, the Mid West Art Prize in Geraldton, and internationally at the Impact8 conference in Dundee Scotland.

All welcome!
