Delmar Gallery Exhibitiondeveloper
Delmar Gallery will be open during the school holidays. Currently on view is a stunning exhibition of geometric abstract art, entitled “Colour is a kind of bliss”. Visit the exhibition from Wednesday to Sunday, 12 -5pm. Parents with kids aged 3 – 7 years are also invited to drop in over the ANZAC weekend (Saturday and Sunday, 1 – 3pm) and participate in free artmaking activities.
The exhibition “Colour is a kind of bliss” explores the language of modernist abstraction, especially 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. Their work is presented alongside seminal paintings from the 1940s by Ralph Balson, a key progenitor of abstraction in Sydney.
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.
A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
