the space between...connected

Group exhibition by

Joanne Searle
John Tuckwell
Grey Daly

21 February - 11 March 2018
Red Gallery Contemporary Art Space


There is a strong sense of landscape in the works of these four artists. Boundary, horizon line, colour, paddock, sky, river and climate are but a few of the abstract and beautiful qualities applied to surface of these artists' pots. The entire four galleries of this venue are devoted to ceramics and it was a treat to see work by makers from NSW in such abundance and quality.

the space between is like a ceramic masterclass, an exemplar on how the surface of clay may capture a personal and poetic sense of landscape.
