JOHN AUSTIN: SURVEY II 1994-2017
EXHIBITION RUNS 16 SEP – 26 NOV
John Austin is a renowned photographer who calls Western Australia home, and is currently based in the South West. Known for working exclusively with fine silver-gelatine black and white prints, normally from large format cameras, his oeuvre covers a broad range of subject matter. Survey II 1994-2017 features a wide cross section of this work – from reportage and detailed documentation of the anti-logging protests in the South West in the 1990s, to his multiple ongoing series of landscape and portrait photography.

THRESHOLDS AND THOUGHTSCAPES
EXHIBITION RUNS 9 SEP – 12 NOV
In this exhibition, Annette Nykiel, Sarah Robinson and Jane Whelan acknowledge the connections between their creative practices. These concern the narratives of the wetlands, limestone caves and coastline, typical of South Western Australia. Through different mediums, they explore the geology, ecosystems and trail of otsam and jetsam left in the wake of time. While each artist has their individual ‘voice’, the dialogue between Nykiel, Robinson and Whelans’ work, created for this exhibition, ‘talks’ of new thoughtscapes along the edges, margins and thresholds they explore.
