For First Nations people, the Earth, sea and sky are intimately connected. Looking up, the night sky reflects Dreaming stories, landforms, animals and seasonal patterns, informing the way people live on, and care for, Country. This exhibition features stunning night sky photography and an immersive soundtrack to explore Wiradjuri astronomical knowledge alongside comparative mythologies from across the world.
Romance of the Swag celebrates the creative life of iconic Australian artist Linda Jackson. An itinerant traveller, Jackson’s work has always drawn inspiration from place; from the black opals of Lightning Ridge, to the billabongs and boabs of the Kimberley Coast, to the tropical flora and fauna of Far North Queensland, and the waratahs of the Blue Mountains region. Romance of the Swag explores four decades of the artist’s practice, charting her travels through painting, fabric, and fashion, all steeped in the symbolism, colours, and textures of the Australian landscape.
How do we affect the spaces we occupy? Richard Morecroft’s recent works explore human interaction with the environment and the way understanding and then utilising space are inextricably intertwined. With mixed media from gravel to glue and bitumen to rust, these symbolic abstractions reflect on history, memory and the colonisation of landscapes.
"Tea With Lizzie" exhibition will be held at the Chifley Home Education Centre to promote community awareness and engagement with the museum, and the recognition of community groups and services. To commemorate the work of Elizabeth Chifley, we are inviting local organisations to participate in the “Tea with Lizzie” exhibition.
