Delmar Gallery Exhibition

Delmar Gallery Exhibition

Delmar Gallery’s latest exhibition, “Colour is a kind of bliss”, opens this weekend. On Sunday at 2pm, join us for the official exhibition launch with guest curator Sioux Garside and the participating artists. Admission is free, register via the booking link.

The exhibition focusses on geometric abstraction, exploring the expressive qualities of colour, light and form in sculpture and painting. It includes contemporary works by Virginia Coventry, Hilarie Mais and Paul Selwood, three artists who have been practising and refining their work for over forty years or more. Their work is presented alongside seminal paintings by Ralph Balson, a key progenitor of modernist abstraction in Sydney in the 1940s and 1950s.

It has been curated for Delmar Gallery by Sioux Garside, an independent curator whose recent major exhibitions and monographs include “DNA of Colour: Ildiko Kovacs” and “Elisabeth Cummings: Interior Landscapes”, presented by Orange Regional Gallery and ANU Drill Hall Gallery.

The exhibition continues until 1 May. Gallery hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 12-5pm.
