ANASTASIA PARMSON: I Drew a Line & Called It Home
Anastasia Parmson creates site-specific immersive installations playfully extending drawing beyond the conventional 2D format. Drawing upon childhood memories and responding to the Brett Whiteley: Drawing is everything exhibition, Parmson has transformed BRAG’s ceramic gallery into a fictional living room containing everyday items that people can engage with.
Parmson currently works from her Sydney studio and has exhibited nationally and internationally across Europe, America, and Australasia. She first created site-specific installations for the 2019 Whangarei Heads Arts Trail in New Zealand.
A suite of exciting programs will be delivered throughout the exhibition period including a kids activity pack, school holiday workshops, artist-led drawing sessions and staff-led exhibition tours.
Anastasia Parmson: I Drew at Line & Called It Home will be on display at BRAG from Saturday 20 November 2021 until Sunday 6 February 2022 and exhibition entry is free.
PETER WILSON: Luminosity
Luminosity is Bathurst-based artist Peter Wilson’s response to 19th century British craftsman William Morris’s call to consider the design, the nuance of form, and the timeless sense of tradition and history within ceramics.
Wilson draws inspiration from the natural landscape, and his studies in geology and palaeontology, to create sublime glazed artworks made from locally sourced materials, including calcium from the Cow Flat, rhyolite from Mudgee, kaolin from Mount Panorama / Wahluu, wood ash from yellow box trees, and blue metal (basalt) dust from the Stewarts Mount.
Peter Wilson: Luminosity will be on display at BRAG from Saturday 20 November 2021 until Sunday 9 January 2022 and exhibition entry is free.
