The exhibition – A Distant Shore will be on at the Q Gallery in Queanbeyan from 5-23 November. Gallery hours are 10am-4pm Mon-Fri and 10am-2pm on Saturdays.  The artists are Rozalie Sherwood and Steve Tomlin. In this exhibition, the artists explore place and identity and their responses to journeys and dislocation. As a traveller or migrant, their work responds to the familiar and reassuring as well as the uncomfortable and disquieting. Using acrylic, textiles, collage and mixed media, the works explore the mystery, challenges and rewards of travel to places either known or new, whether in Australia, the Congo, England or elsewhere, and how this travel shapes and redefines our perspective and place within the world. The opening by Nancy Tingey OAM is at 5:30pm on 5 November. All welcome.

The exhibition is at Armidale, NSW at ART (Armidale Art Gallery), 168 Beardy Street, The Mall.

   Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson: Step Into Paradise – Now until 22 MARCH 2020 at the Powerhouse Museum Sydney. Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson: Step Into Paradise is the first in-depth survey that captures the dynamic energy of Linda and Jenny’s creative partnership. It draws on more than four decades of one of the most influential pairings in the history of Australian fashion, examining the influences, inspirations and the compelling stories behind their work. Honoured as Officers in the Order of Australia for their contributions to Australia’s fashion industry, Jenny Kee and Linda Jackson transformed the nation’s fashion and cultural heritage with their pioneering style inspired by Australia’s cultural and natural landscape, melded with their global influences. The exhibition begins with their creative partnership in the 1970s at the Flamingo Park Frock Salon at Sydney’s Strand arcade and the sensational Flamingo Follies fashion parades, branching into their distinctive individual careers through to recent years including Jenny’s costume designs for the Sydney Olympic Games and their collaborations with Australian designers Romance Was Born. Over 150 garments, textiles, photographs and artworks, many unseen, from the Museum’s own extensive collection are brought together with the designers’ personal archives. Highlight pieces on display include artwork from the pair and archival behind the scenes photographs, Jenny Kee’s black opal Chanel suit from Karl Lagerfeld’s first collection in 1983 and Linda Jackson’s iconic Waratah dress. Venue: Powerhouse Museum 500 Harris St Ultimo NSW 2007.

OPEN HOUSE 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial celebrates the open-ended, porous nature of textiles practice today. It introduces a group of artists who have not previously exhibited in the triennial. All are linked in some way to a sense of broader engagement with things outside of themselves and their studios. Many celebrate the process of belonging that comes from working with other artists, while others take on wide-ranging issues such as the landscape and the environment, and the artist’s place in a world beset by environmental, social and cultural upheaval. Bringing it all together is a kind of openness that comes through exhibiting, talking and creating which can involve both artist and viewer as equal participants. The making process is equally as important as the works themselves, and the conversations while creating and showing create an open house where all ideas and responses are welcome. Tamworth Regional Gallery’s association with textile art dates back to the early 1970s. The Tamworth Textile Triennial, held every three years, showcases the best of textile art from across the country, attracting artist participation from all states in Australia. The ARTISTS for the 3rd Tamworth Triennial are Sally Blake, John Brooks, GhostNets Australia, Gomeroi gaaynggal, ArtsHealth Program, Treahna Hamm, Joy Ivill, Carol McGregor, Rebecca Mayo, Noongar Doll Makers, Community Arts, Network, Raquel Ormella, Julia Robinson, Ema Shin, Jeanette Stok and Meredith Woolnough. Exhibition curator, Glenn Barkley. https://www.tamworthregionalgallery.com.au/ The exhibition is at Orange Regional Gallery, NSW: 8 February – 22 March 2020; Blue Mountains Cultural Centre, NSW: 28 March – 10 May 2020. Exhibition Curator, Glenn Barkley.
