OBLIQUE Glass from the Victorian State Craft Collection

from October 08, 2016 @ 9:00 AM until February 05, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Latrobe Regional Gallery

Oblique showcases a selection of glass from the Victorian State Craft Collection (VSCC).  The glass component of this collection has been on long term loan to Latrobe Regional Gallery since 2002.  The VSCC comprises of 465 artworks in a range of mediums (glass, ceramics, metal, textiles, wood and leather) collected from 1977 to 1990, which were produced by some of the most innovative, experimental and non-conformist craft practitioners of the time.

The exhibition highlights works that diverge from the ordinary, using innovative techniques and combinations of processes such as sandblasting, devitrification, engraving, glass blowing, kiln forming, acid etching and frosting.

Focus is placed on craftsmanship, form, refraction, colour, narrative and symbolic content. The selected works are bold and often combine functionality with personal expression, presenting a mesmerising and concise reflection of Australian studio glass during the 1980’s.

Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

In the 200 years since J.M.W. Turner rose to fame, his images of land, sea and sky scapes have lost none of their electrifying intensity.

In his lifetime Turner travelled extensively throughout Europe, particularly after the end of the Napoleonic Wars. All the while he prolifically produced images of landscapes and towns.

The Turner Gallery, acquired by the Gallery in 2013, was first published in 1875 after the artist’s death, and includes 120 fine steel engravings after some of Turner’s most popular images. The extensive collection ranges from views and landscapes in Great Britain, Germany and Italy, to studies of ships, mythical scenes and panoramas from classical Rome.

Jordan Wood - The Dark Passenger

Jordan Wood - The Dark Passenger

from November 26, 2016 @ 10:00 AM until February 12, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Imaginary futures collide with ancient pasts in the hybrid art of Jordan Wood.

The Maffra-born artist, now based in Melbourne, decodes a long-gone language of objects to animate her creations in installation, sculpture, ceramic and collage. Wood excavates through the fabric of time and culture to propose a future landscape already falling into decay.

The Dark Passenger presents the various strands of Wood’s art practice to pitch viewers into a field in which there are few footholds. Between science and culture Wood carves an alternative niche where nebulous matter can incubate, casting aside the laws of logic that hold us captive.
