Through the process of creating, talking and exhibiting, the artists join together with…

The Art of Ageing

November 30, 2018 - January 13, 2019
Manning Regional Art Gallery,
12 Macquarie Street, Taree, NSW 2430 Australia

Our community is changing. We are getting older and living longer. By 2031, one in three people in NSW will be aged 50 or over. However, from war veterans to proud L-platers, sports enthusiasts, artists and refugees, older people are anything but clichéd. In depicting the diversity of older people in NSW, the Art of Ageing challenges out-dated perceptions of ageing, and celebrates the contribution older people make to our communities. It reminds us that older people are not all…

Fiona Lowry

December 8, 2018 - February 10, 2019
Glasshouse,
cnr Clarence and Hay St, Port Macquarie,

The trees, they whisper… The bush as locus of myth lies deep in the Australian psyche, or at least in the heart of many of its painters. In Fiona Lowry’s dreamy renderings, the scrub pulses and hums with surface tension: a natural beauty unnaturally realised in a striking high-key palette. Lowry’s habitat is urban, but she is driven – gently haunted – by the trauma and secrets within the country. She intoxicates the viewer and lures us to a psychological…
