Menagerie in Dubbo, HYPERCLAY to Canberra.
Thursday March 22 2012
What an exciting week it is for the touring exhibitions department here at Object. After all the hassle of floods around Wagga Wagga, the Menagerie: Contemporary Indigenous Sculpture exhibition has made it safely to its next stop, the Dubbo Regional Gallery at the Western Plains Cultural Centre. With an opening Friday night (23 March) everyone out there, along with Kate Ford our Exhibitions Coordinator, is working hard to get it ready for Dubbo’s audiences.
Down in Canberra, ACT, at the Watson Arts Centre, our installer Robert has been working with the staff there to install HYPERCLAY: Contemporary Ceramics. After its recent showing at Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, the installation at Watson is challenging, but comments from Sara and staff down there indicate they are excited with this innovative digital exhibition.
So, if you want to catch either of these two great exhibitions that showcase some of the best Australian designers and artists, why not take a trip out to Dubbo or Canberra for a weekend? There is so much to see and experience in both these cities.
