Courthouse Gallery Exhibition Opening: Close Encounters with Remote Western Australia

Friday 22nd February 2019


CLOSE ENCOUNTERS WITH REMOTE WESTERN AUSTRALIA: CONSUELO CAVANIGLIA AND PENNY COSS

Visitants brings together acclaimed Australian artists, Consuelo Cavaniglia (NSW) and Penny Coss (WA),  showcasing outcomes from their residencies in the Pilbara during 2016.

Both artists seek to capture moments of experience, particularly of the natural world, that inspire wonder, or a sense of personal revelation. At the heart of Cavaniglia and Coss’ practices is the use of colour and light to create optical illusions, or evoke sensual and transformative experiences.

The resulting exhibition translated the artists’ experiences in Karijini National Park into large-scale abstract compositions and immersive installations that loom over or surround their viewers, or stain the gallery walls with colour and light.

 

MENAGERIE: AN EXHIBITION FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

FEATURING WORKS BY LOCAL ARTISTS ND HEDLAND SCHOOL STUDENTS 

To complement Visitants, FORM is delighted to present a group show by Pilbara-based artists depicting the region’s unique and diverse fauna.

Inspired by the Fremantle Arts Centre’s wildly popular Animaze exhibition(November 2018), Menagerie invites Port Hedland’s young people and their families on safari, to discover a world of animals and art.
