Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery presents two exhibitions showing from 3 March – 22 April 2017.
Pinned to the Wall – Susan O’Doherty
Susan O’ Doherty explores the uneasy sphere of domestic violence. Featuring paintings and mixed media using recycled and found objects, this exhibition suggests the extremes and the everyday of home life. Her imagined scenes hint at an intense and sometimes dark underbelly. It has always intrigued Susan “that the private persona is very different from the public one. Outward appearances are just that: we behave differently behind closed doors.”
Pinned to the Wall features paintings and mixed media assemblages that question the domestic ideal, exploring themes of family violence and gender inequity.
10 Years of EMSLA
Celebrating 10 years of EMSLA, the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, the gallery’s signature program and Australia’s leading award of the still life genre. Showcasing past winners and acquisitions from the first ten years of the award.
EMSLA, Australia’s leading still life award, is a national acquisitive prize sponsored by Dr Mal Eutick, who founded the award in honour of his parents. It provides Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery with a unique collection premise: to acquire the best still life paintings in Australia, from the colonial era onwards.
