Another Thousand Years – 10 Centenarian Drawings
Long time painter printmaker and more recently sculptor, Peter Wegner has taken his sensitive eye to the subject of longevity. This suite of drawings are part of a larger collection of 100 Centenarians. Drawn from life they aim to explore what it is like to live on this earth for 100 years.
The issue of ageing and the shared experience of dignity and independence and what it means to have a productive and meaningful life are all part of this exhibition.
Ultima District Uncovered
Over a period of seven days in August and September 2018, former Swan Hill resident Mick Cullin was commissioned by Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery to photograph the community and district of Ultima.
Immersed in the community with the support of Ultima Progress Association, Ultima Football Netball Club, Ultima Primary School and a number of individuals and families, Mick captured the town, sporting events, local industry, children, and families through work, leisure and play.
In this candid, honest and sensitive photographic project, Mick reveals the true spirit of this small but resilient Victorian Mallee town.
