Hold on to your hats!
Three new exhibitions at the Goulburn Regional Art Gallery opened on Friday, September 10 and they are all stunning.
The main gallery sees 'Earthbound', which assembles six Australian contemporary artists working in ceramics.
'Earthbound' is truly a sight to behold, and gallery program and exhibition coordinator, Hannah Gee, said she had the pleasure of curating and conceptually developing the exhibition.
"I would like to thank and congratulate all of our exhibiting artists in Earthbound," Gee said.
"It was my great pleasure to come across practices so far flung, yet equally dedicated to the very technical, yet primordial world of surroundings."
Gee spoke about what each of the six artists brought to the exhibition.
"From Cairns, Janet Fieldhouse brings objects that speak to Torres Islander culture, material, ritual and memory," she said.
"Based in Gundaroo, Ian Jones's work slides effortlessly between traditional form and the rupture of chance.
"Katrina Leske from Canberra, using combinations of wheel throwing, slab building and saggar firing, provides us with objects that tell of their journey through fire.
"Kate McKay, based in Collector, creates an installation that pushes the darkest of clays and references the chasing forms and its slight adaptations.
"From South Australia, Carlene Thompson's vessels are shimmering with movement through the use of sgraffito carving.
"They tell the story of a mother emu raising her chicks as the very same artists bring ceramic objects into the world with the same level of love and dedication.
"From Sydney, Alana Wilson exhibits new work that focuses on the relationship between human force and material agencies like no other artist I've ever seen."
Exhibiting in Gallery Two are Kim Williams and Lucas Ihlein who are a collaborative artistic team with a focus on sustainable practices and a questioning of the plastic world we take for granted.
Based in the Illawarra region, their work traces the impact of micro-plastics on ecosystems, from the water, the rivers, the land and our own bodies.
"They generate a perspective that is equally vibrant and aesthetic as it is overwhelming," Gee said.
In the Window, Bill Dorman casts an eye over our holdings and lands on the works of another local wonder, Steven Hartup.
"With Dorman's own sculptural practice that sees the revitalisation of steel, he brings a photographic series of Hartup's work into our attention," she said.
"It examines the effect of fire on the landscape.
"The work is as tactile as soft clay and as ominous as plastic."
The gallery will be delivering digital content and will bring the show to the public through talks, workshops and videos.
