On Stillness

Mon June 29 - Mon August 31


On Stillness is an evolving online exhibition presented across the social media accounts of public art galleries. It highlights artwork from the collections of each institution that embody the idea of stillness. Initiated by the National Art School and Newcastle Art Gallery, the exhibition draws focus to the collective experience of stillness imposed by the COVID-19 lockdown.

#onstillnessexhibition has been a great opportunity to celebrate the richness of Orange Regional Gallery’s Collection, placing it in dialogue with other major collections across New South Wales. The growing exhibition presents a myriad of works from early twentieth century Australian art to now, connected online, and embodying that elusive stillness.

Stay tuned for the next post on our Instagram account @orangeregionalgallery, and follow the hashtag #onstillnessexhibition to follow the growing collection of works and gallery collaborators.
