Leftover Love – New Directions

Exhibition Dates: 29 April – 18 June
Pinnacles Gallery

Leftover Love – New Directions brings together contemporary artists who use textiles or textile techniques to create sculptural forms that engage with ideas around sustainability, environment, and material culture.

This exhibition has evolved from the 2021 show Leftover Love, curated by the Australian Tapestry Workshop.

These artists are driven by a desire to have a sustainable practice; all reuse, repurpose and remake using found and discarded materials. Techniques such as stitching, knitting, weaving, and quilting are used to create textural and sculptural forms that coexist together within a shared space.

Upcoming Exhibitions

One foot on the ground, one foot in the water

Exhibition Dates: 24 June - 27 August

At a time when many are experiencing complex feelings about the frailty of life and future uncertainty, the exhibition One foot on the ground, one foot in the water turns to the subject of our own mortality. Eleven contemporary artists present paintings, sculptures, installations and sound works that invoke experiences of loss, impermanence, transience, remembrance, memorialisation and their own expressions of grief.

Each artist offers insight into the ways we let go of death, or hold it close, as a continuing living presence in the world. Artworks and other objects can reflect these kinds of present-absences, allowing the departed to continue to resonate in our memory, and in objects that outlive them.
