Authentic Determination

5 May - 18 Aug


Authentic Determination sees Brigid Noone apply her unique methodology, an experimental hybrid of artistic and curatorial processes, to the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art. Noone will open a conversation between the collection, her own work and the work of her peers, exploring how the complex lives of artists are embodied in their work.

Stewart Scambler: Fragment

5 May - 18 Aug


Stewart Scambler has always been struck by the natural environment and the intense light of Western Australia – which has significantly influenced his practice as a potter. In the exhibition Fragment at the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, Scambler presents a new body of work, a striking assembly of large-scale sculptural forms and murals inspired by his recent journey through the Pilbara and Kimberley.



In Light of Shadows

Until 7 Jul


This exhibition explores cross-cultural understandings and material expressions to present light and shadow as existing in harmony with one another rather than in opposition.

Focusing on the Berndt Museum’s Asian Collection, In Light of Shadows encourages audiences to question the meaning of light and/or darkness in relation to other cultures and within themselves.
