TWO exhibitions opened to the public Saturday, September 7, in the Tuggeranong Arts Centre at Lanyon (former Nolan Gallery).Adele Rae Cameron, who won an exhibition as part of her 2012 Emerging Artist Support Scheme Exhibition Award, is adding an Australian chapter to the story of the Cameron Scots in her show, “Links to the Past.”
Cameron has been working with found materials, cardboard, aluminium and steel, natural dyes from Scotland and Australia, as well as rust and organic matter, combining these with contemporary textile practices.
Apart from finding her links to the past, she questions our culture of waste and overconsumption.
The second exhibition is “Anima: Jung’s term for the feminine archetype,” an exhibition on that theme of recent works by Linda Davy, Mariana del Castillo, Rebecca Hadley, Tanya Myshkin, Luna Ryan and Harriet Schwarzrock in glass, ceramics, drawing painting and mixed media.“CityNews” hears that Tuggeranong Arts Centre will not continue to exhibit at Lanyon after returning in October to the refurbished Centre on Lake Tuggeranong. A pity, it is a magnificent space with plenty of artistic resonance left over from its origins as the purpose-built Nolan Gallery.
“Links to the Past” and “Anima: Jung’s term for the feminine archetype”, at Tuggeranong Arts Centre at Lanyon (former Nolan Gallery), Tuesdays to Sundays, 10am-4pm, until September 29.
