Arcadia - Laura Jones
Sydney based artist and 2019 Artist in Residence, Laura Jones presents Arcadia a solo exhibition that celebrates our spirited local Port Macquarie coastal landscape. Jones’ signature vivid colourful still lifes and spirited landscapes are scaled up to depict familiar sub-tropical flora. Banksias, flannel flowers, banana plants and frangipanis, rock pools with urchins and Neptune’s pearls are all captured with unashamed reverence for beauty.
duality - Asher Milgate
Asher Milgate’s work responds to the historic ‘Australian’ identity. Drawing from direct accounts Milgate discusses the collisions of colonisation and effects of prosperity and trauma. duality is a transferal of history, of lived experiences echoed through photography, video, installation and sound recordings. Milgate seeks to engage the public’s interest in the breath of the ‘Australian’ landscape, through diversity, similarity and dual perspectives.
