Ceramic Break Sculpture Park

Current Exhibitions and Events

Come over to the Park next Saturday June 12th
to see our 2 exhibitions which continue our tradition of
commemorating the Myall Creek Memorial Day;

2012 but Mostly Now by James Kearns and

A Collective Identity, a group exhibition of Tamworth artists and the Bumbira Art and Yarn women's group from Tamworth.

In our top gallery we have the serene and delightful works of local papermaker, Yvonne Ledingham
and the boisterous and cheeky bronzes of Kerry Cannon, Bronzes from 1997 to 2005.

The opening runs from 12 noon — 5 pm with refreshments and lunch to raise your spirits.

Entry is by gold coin donation and entry in the Green Prize will be available to those who bring their own recyclable utensils.

In Gallery 2 view James Kearns drawings and paintings on paper, on board and on canvas. It is an eclectic and generally sombre collection in which a few dark themes are suggested. The east wall is especially powerful with many works concerning the horrible events at Myall Creek. On the west wall, James depiction of a young bull, full of curiosity and latent power but not threatening could hang anywhere.

In Gallery 1 is the exhibition A Collective Identity which features Tamworth artists, Jodie Herden, Tess Reading, Nat Little, Kaliela Thornton, and Kisani Upward. The works are glorious and diverse. Two examples : Kisani Upward has two large portraits both painted for the Archibald Prize and the Bumbira Women’s group works show delicate weavings and 15 unique possum skins. The skins were gifted to the women to paint their stories. All these artists enjoy colour and shape and using their knowledge to educate and inspire the viewer.

The final treat is in the top gallery. After the sombre works of James and the colourful pieces of the women artists, you will be able to catch your breath by contemplating the unique paper art of Yvonne Ledingham. Then there are the bronzes to really wake you up again.

The exhibition continues through July.
