THE FUN ROOM
Tony Albert, Glenn Barkley, Barbara Cleveland, Hannah Gartside, Christina Darras, Ben Frost, Hannah Gartside, Louise Meuwissen, Ariel Ruby
The Fun Room presents a selection of contemporary practicing Australian artists who create provoking works with a presence of fun. The show is a collection of vibrant contemporary artworks in varied media that initially appear as light hearted, colourful and dynamic works. But, in fact, the artists are often investigating deeper running themes of concern.
29 February – 5 April | Gallery2
An exclusive showing of Maker’s Hand from artist Tricia Flanagan, this exhibition has never been shown to Australian audiences. A combination of two projects, Flanagan explores the increasingly digitised manufacturing of manual skills and traditional crafts. It invites viewers to pause for reflection, to consider the risks of what might be lost to future generations who are in danger of losing touch with the process of making by hand.

LIBBY SCHREIBER: DOMESTIC BLISS
An exhibition of linocut prints by artist Libby Schreiber depicts domestic and farm animals as the main subject matter. Titles are often Schreiber’s starting point, offering a glimpse into the works meaning or narrative. Schreiber believes animals tell funnier stories than those told by humans and as an artist she gains more freedom playing with animals in this way. Schreiber is a local printmaker living in rural North East Victoria.
Open Tues – Sun 10am – 4pm. Closed Mon. Closed Public Holidays & for installation.
