May 28 – June 6, Tremain’s Mill Bathurst. A curated exhibition of work from artists in the Arts OutWest region on the theme of ‘overcome’.
Whether it be through the emotion associated with being overcome, the current situation in Australia of appearing to have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, or the personal challenges with which artists have to contend, we are all familiar with the idea of ‘overcome’.
This exhibition has invited a group of artists from across the region to show their own interpretation of what ‘overcome’ means to them.
Curated by Bridget Thomas working with Arts OutWest’s Steven Cavanagh, the work from this group of artists will be shown at Tremain’s Mill in Bathurst from 28 May – 6 June with the opening to be held on Friday evening 28 May.
As a lead-up to the exhibition, Bridget has ran workshops with several organisations in the community who help people to overcome the challenges they face in areas such as disability. These groups will be making banners for the exhibition.
Our thanks again to Steve Birrell and his team at Tremains Mill for making the space available to us.
This project is made possible through Restart funds from Create NSW to assist the arts to recover from the impacts of Covid-19 and is one of several projects that Arts OutWest is delivering with these funds.
