Weathered at Tweed River Art Gallery

In October last year I had the opportunity to work with my good friend and weather project collaborator, Susan Buret, whilst on residence at Montsalvat in Victoria. It's exciting now to exhibit works that developed, in our exhibition Weathered at the beautiful Tweed River Art Gallery in Murwillumbah.

I would like to extend you a warm invitation to the opening on Friday 11th May, 6-8pm. If you are in the area it would be lovely to see you.

When the weather project began we looked at the subject of weather as a conversation starter, universally safe ground, or even a default mode of communication. Weather is a shared experience that we can all relate to. Despite attempts to insulate and climate control our surrounds, weather often impacts on our choice of weekend activities, the attire we wear and to some extent our peace of mind. It provokes an immediate connection to the world around us, and at times reignites a sense of community as we brave the elements and band together to repair the damage it can cause.
