Join artists Jason Wing and Nicole Welch for a free and informative relaxed talk in the Gallery.

An inadvertent but fortuitous piece of gallery programming synchronicity means we are fortunate to have two artists and exhibitions reflecting upon the colonial settlement of Australia this spring.

Come and meet Nicole Welch and Jason Wing as they discuss their exhibitions and share some insights into their artistic practice.
