30 June – 15 July, 2018
The Central West is home to an abundance of artistic expression. Here, Now celebrates the depth and diversity of this creative production.
Orange Regional Gallery invites all artists living in the Central West to submit recent work for Here, Now. For some artists this may be their first experience exhibiting in a gallery space, whilst for others it will be a familiar event.
The exhibition will be broad in artistic range and will include paintings, drawings and sculptures. Places are limited so artists are encouraged to contact the Gallery for guidelines and to register.
AFTER-LIFE: Animal Stories from Beyond the Grave
21 July – 19 August 2018
The sequel to Rod McRae’s exhibition Wunderkammer, AFTER-LIFE attempts to focus on what it means to be wild, free and autonomous verses domesticated and farmed. The animals in AFTER-LIFE speak to us as an unrepresented slave class, bred, traded, worked, slaughtered, processed and consumed as part of a vast production machine to feed, dress and decorate exploding homo sapien populations—these are their stories.
This exhibition uses taxidermy and animal skeletons including a family of giraffe to present its powerful messages. All the animals in AFTER-LIFE have been ethically sourced. No animal has been harmed to make this work in the first instance.
AFTER- LIFE is on loan from Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo.
