Geraldton Regional Art Gallery (GRAG) has unveiled the latest line-up of exhibitions to grace the gallery space for the next six weeks.

Set to open at 6pm Friday 13 May, Stratigraphy and Subject: Studio examine the role of the artist in responding to both personal and public environments in a dazzling range of media and approaches.  

Subject: Studio is the latest exhibition by well-known southwest artist Susan Ecker, exploring the  artist’s studio and practice with a collection of paintings, sculptures, prints and drawings.

Stratigraphy is a group exhibition from WA’s premier contemporary art group, Art Collective WA, showcasing the complex relationship Western Australians have with the state’s environment.

City of Greater Geraldton Deputy Mayor Jerry Clune welcomed the exhibitions to the Gallery.

“Geraldton Regional Art Gallery continues to deliver world-class exhibitions to the Midwest, and these latest showcases are no exception,” he said.

Subject: Studio is the work of internationally-renowned painter Susan Ecker and it’s sure to offer real insight into the artist’s process and journey.

Stratigraphy brings together the works of four artists – Merrick Belyea, Sarah Elson, Brad Rimmer and Susan Roux – who each interact with and respond to the West Australian landscape in their own distinctive ways.”

Tickets to the Opening Night event on Friday 13 May are limited, so patrons are requested to register their attendance via Eventbrite.

The artists will also be present for an Artist Panel Discussion on Saturday 14 May at 10.30am at GRAG. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Both Stratigraphy and Subject: Studio will be on display from Saturday 14 May until Sunday 26 June 2022 during regular Gallery hours.
