Monday 17th October 6pm for a 6.30pm Start
@ The Courthouse Hotel, Mullumbimby.
A collaborative event with Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre.
c.a.s.e. and the Byron School of Art are delighted to welcome
An educational and social evening with a diverse group of regional printmakers discussing their studio processes and practices.
The artists are part of the exhibition Local Provenance curated by Jan Davis and Susi Muddiman OAM on display at the Tweed Regional Gallery & Margaret Olley Art Centre, until Sunday, December 4.
Local Provenance is a botanical term which describes plants grown from locally collected seed. This exhibition presents the work of twelve printmakers who live and work in the Lismore, Tweed, Byron, Kyogle or Grafton regions, or who trained locally in the printmaking studios at Southern Cross University.
If we think of the university studios as a hothouse, then other gardening notions proliferate; seeding, germination, pollination, seed dispersal and regeneration. The development of these artists’ careers, from their local seeding to their current status as artists of national significance, can be described in these terms. Importantly, local institutions such as the Lismore, Grafton and Tweed Regional Galleries might be thought of as elaborate trellises that have supported the growth of these artists, and their collections are also acknowledged in this exhibition.
The artists included in Local Provenance are Darren Bryant, Jan Davis, Sarah Harvey, Gary Jolley, Jenny Kitchener, Leonie Lane, Shelagh Morgan, Travis Paterson, Rochelle Summerfield, Scott Trevelyan, Samuel Tupou and Christine Willcocks.
Local Provenance is a project associated with the Print Council of Australia's 50th Anniversary Year of Print.
Come and enjoy the talk, pictures and discussions over a glass of something from the bar or a delicious plate of food from the Courthouse kitchens.
