New shows opening at WAG tonight.
Tonight, Adventurous Souls featuring Grace Ruby Herrmann will have its official opening night starting at 6pm, with the exhibition running till the 13th of September.
“This show explores the turbulent nature of the world contrast against an idyllic Australian lifestyle. Influenced by fantasy and mythology, in mediums of paper carving, woodcarving, gold leaf gilding and oil painting,” says Ms Herrmann.
Also opening tonight outside the gallery is the The Mount Coot-Tha Project featuring Des Rolph. The Brisbane artist has created an exhibition of 42 small oil paintings that takes the viewer on a visual walk around Mt Coot-tha. The intent of this exhibition is to make a historical documentation of the vistas of Brisbane, the local landmarks, and recreational spaces that visitors to this mountain know and love.
While on September 12th the Ngaaykulam-Patju Tjamuku Kapiliku Jurkurpa (Our Grandfather and Grandmothers Stories) exhibition featuring Papulankutja artists will have its official opening night. The gallery will be filled with artwork from a small community at the base of the Blackstone Ranges, Western Australia. These paintings are rich in stories emanating from their sense of history, culture and place.
