Docklands Art Collective – May wrap Image

WHARF STREET OPEN NIGHT 2.0

Friday, May 4

The Docklands Art Collective has joined forces once again for Wharf St Open Night 2.0! There will be several exhibition openings happening along the street from 6pm.

THE AUSTRALIAN CARTOON MUSEUM

The ACM now has the ‘Trump Tower’ (12 foot high) and a Ball Tampering exhibition. Paul Harvey’s fabulous caricatures remain on show in the Head High Tackle exhibition.

Also in May it has a Phantom (Ghost Who Walks) exhibition scheduled for late May, plus a Phantom PHANS MEET UP on Saturday, May 5.

MAGNET @ DOCKLANDS

MY COUNTRY ­­– April 22 – late May 2018

A very rare opportunity to see and purchase paintings by some of the great names of Aboriginal art, including Rover Thomas, Queenie McKenzie, Jack Dale Mengenen, Anjolu (Heather Umpagai), Alex Nganjmirra and others.  

TRASH PUPPETS

Sunday Puppet Club will be running throughout May and June to coincide with the District Makers Market on Sundays. Participants can make their very own Trash Puppet with expert guidance from the Trash Puppet team. $10 entry fee.

AT CURRENT GALLERY

At Current will open a new exhibition, Tremble Like Flowers, by resident artist, Brett Mallon. 

CROWTHER CONTEMPORARY

May 3 ­– May 22: Opening night Friday,

May 4, 6-9pm

J Forsyth’s exhibition, Above The Line, sticks to the older 35mm film format, opting out of the digital fashion of today’s photographers. Her urban and desolate landscapes are brought together with the line of light that filters into each frame, demarcating a space that is in transition where neither light or dark has taken over. These works speak of the fragility of the environment and the human’s role in it.

Conversely Tara Stubley’s textured and painterly work in her exhibition The Intimate and Sensual in Nature explores the raw power present in nature. These paintings are packed with gestural and expressive forces that evoke the presence of the natural environment. Each painting brings us closer to what we miss in the city environment, the exotic pull of the untamed world that we were once more in touch with.

THE ARTISTS GUILD

Visible - The Artists Guild Public Circle

May 18 , 7pm - 8.30pm

The Artists Guild Member Show: The Shape of Things

Opening night May 4, 6 - 9pm  

Exhibition running from the May 4 – May 26

Free

Stephanie Gobor | Janita Ryan | Natasha Kelly | Annie Taylor | Claire Weigall | Annie Jones | Claire Needham | Petra Kleinherne | Avrille O’Doherty | Karima Baadilla | Emily Raubenheimer 

When we shape something we form it. Shape is about the external form, contours, or outline of someone or something. It is about defining one from the other, about forging something that was nothing into something that is a THING. It is about push and pull and the resultant outcome of this process. We shape objects, we shape ideas, we shape movements, we shape ourselves, we shape others and we shape the world around us. 

The Shape of Things is an open-ended invitation to artists of diverse mediums to explore the theme in whatever direction it leads them. Feature artwork by Annie Taylor.
