Menagerie: Tegan Wheeldon & Laura Gibbs
Saturday 22 September – Sunday 14 October

Exhibition opening event: 2-4pm, Saturday 22 September

Menagerie is an exhibition of new works by Tegan Wheeldon and Laura Gibbs. The artists utilise methods of printmaking and painting to explore their interest in the natural world, with particular focus on avians and insects. Gibbs’ birds, finely painted in watercolour, are drawn from her immediate environment; the vast countryside and lakes of northern Victoria. Wheeldon utilises techniques of frottage and relief printing to explore a fusion of insect and textile in her mandala-esque compositions. Together these artists weave a menagerie of feathers and antennae, beaks and mandibles, within the exhibition space.

Exhibition hours: 10am – 3pm Friday, Saturday & Sunday
