Remnants – There she goes my beautiful world

Thu 6 June at 8:00 am - Mon 10 June at 5:00 pm

Remnants: There she goes my beautiful world. An exhibition of 3 artists’ work using photography, mixed media and installation to delve into the pieces and places of the past. An homage to the detritus left behind from another era and the beauty that can be found beneath the layers of dust, torn paper, and faded fabric and nature.
Sarah Ryan is a mixed media artist who lives on a farm at Quandialla NSW. Her work explores the themes of past lives, decaying memories and emotional connections to places through her collage and assemblage pieces. She uses old book pages, aged correspondence, crumbling letters and diaries, fabrics and packaging to create works that celebrate times past and our personal connections to them.
Calista Tam is a mixed media artist, her work is influenced by the fleeting moments within nature. Her sculptures are an exploration of light, transparency and the play of shadows. There is a delight in the creation of balance by embracing the positive and negative spaces between and within organic forms. Experimenting with the use of remnant materials, her work combines predominantly textiles with found objects and metal. Her hope is to evoke feelings of connection to the beauty found in the forms of nature.
Kate Barclay is an award winning art photographer from Canowindra who practices mostly in the still life medium.  Remnants speaks to her love of heritage textures found in buildings left behind in rural Australia.  Playing with light and colour to create emotion in her work Kate hopes to engage the viewer in a nostalgic view of what was and what could be if we were to bring our remnants back to life.
The exhibition will open from Thursday 6th of June with the official opening on Friday the 7th at 6pm during the Henry Lawson Festival.  Held in the Grenfell Scout Hall the exhibition will use the existing original space to blend the artworks with the history of the building. Address 6 Short Street Grenfell.
