Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) Ballina launches four exciting new exhibitions in January.
Pockets of Green | Nicole Wood
A collection of pastel drawings and acrylic paintings, depicting the pockets of green discovered
through the Nicole’s regular travels. Featuring rainforests, tree-lined roads and open spaces, each
place exhibiting her strong admiration of these environments.
I Harbour An Obsession | Joanne Mulcahy Zubani
Using innovative methods to enhance discarded materials, Joanne probes into the indelible
ramifications of our carbon footprint, on the spectacular landscape of the Northern Rivers.
Intimate Fragments | Sabine Pick
Sabine’s practice consists of making minimalist collage using parts of words, half words,
unreadable words, unspoken words and random thoughts. These small works invite close
observation of details that we often overlook. Using discarded books and years of commercial and
private letterpress printing, etchings and calligraphy, the fragmented shapes are placed on old
collected postcards as a fabric to hold them together.
Perpetual Transit: Five Years on the Road | Susan Joyce
Following five years travelling around Australia, Susan’s abstract paintings record tracks from
sparse plains to dense areas of vegetation or town. The spacious, untethered, layered areas with
subtle variations are in contrast to the boldly defined shapes of the concentrated hubs. Travel lines
connect the two providing compositional cues and signalling perpetual transit.
All exhibitions open Wednesday 15 January 2020 and continue until Sunday 8 March 2020.
The official launch event is Thursday 16 January from 5.30pm – 7.30pm and all are welcome
