Upcoming Exhibitions and Events

Exhibition

Assemble

August 3 – September 29, 2019

Assemble – To bring together – Two artists come together to exhibit their art, both utilising  the creative discipline of assemblage but in different yet complementary ways.

Rosemary begins with abstract paper collage assemblages which then transfer into exquisite and detailed oil paintings. Mim’s sculptures feature recycled materials, which are changed in the process, then figures created from modelling clay are added. An intrinsic aspect to this exhibition is the vibrant use of colour, which unifies the art and gives the exhibition an uplifting dimension.

When: August 3 – September 29, 2019
Where: MIRA Marysville, 11 Murchison Street.
Cost: Free

Exhibition

Murmurations

October 4 – October 24, 2019

Murmuration: A large group of birds, usually starlings, that all fly together and change direction together, or the act of birds doing this.

Masses of birds work together creating these large displays in the sky, called a murmuration. Here there is no leader, each bird follows the wing of the next, protecting the entire flock from harm. This wonder serves as a metaphor for the power and love a community is capable of when they come together to support each other at times of loss. A compassionate community unafraid to speak openly of death and dying. A community which advocates for their loved ones to experience a “good death” and seeks to support carers and the bereaved.

Bronwyn’s years of working in palliative care have made her passionate about the need for this to be inbuilt in our community. She works as an advocate for death literacy and uses her art practice to engage and inspire others to do the same.

These works encourage the viewer to contemplate what a compassionate community would look like, and how each of us has the power to make it happen.

When: October 4 – October 24 , 2019
Where: MIRA Marysville, 11 Murchison Street.
Cost: Free
