Marjorie Coleman: Lyrical Stitch
17 Oct - 28 Nov
This major solo exhibition spans five decades to celebrate the creative life and prolific stitched art work of Western Australian artist Marjorie Coleman. Stitching on cloth gives voice to Marjorie’s stories. Using contemporary stitch as an expressive medium Marjorie produces rich evocative pieces to represent her ideas and experiences, to tell a story of ongoing exploration, and concern for her local surroundings. She takes pleasure from working with cloth, drawing on a lifetime of intimate knowledge, to stitch for her own enlightenment.

Tracing the Swan
28 Sep - 7 Feb
Tracing the Swan follows the story of the settlement of the Swan River Colony with the swan as the central character in artworks about race, difference and the unexpected. In a play between fiction and reality, the black swan is traced throughout the history of the colonisation of Western Australia up to the present day. From historical to contemporary artworks, the exhibition explores how WA was presented to potential settlers, how its landscape was impacted and has changed over time and how the swan stands as emblem of WA against this tide of changes in its real environment.
