Current Exhibition








curated by Catherine Benz


Delmar Gallery’s annual survey of recent graduate work turns the spotlight on the next generation of ceramic artists. The Cooked and the Raw features clay sculpture and installation by seven artists who have recently graduated with Honours and Masters degrees from the National Art School, Sydney College of the Arts and UNSW Art & Design.   Embracing a diversity of techniques and approaches to the medium, their exuberant work ranges from exploring the raw expression and tactility of clay to highly refined built forms and immersive environments.


Exhibition opening:  Saturday 8 February, 3-5pm with guest speaker Ramesh Nithiyendran, artist and lecturer, UNSW Art & Design

Exhibition dates:  5 – 23 February, 2020

Gallery hours: Wednesday – Sunday, 12-5pm.  Free admission.

Upcoming Concert


Emily Granger | Harp

Jonathan Henderson | Flute

Presented in collaboration with Delmar Gallery, Trinity Grammar School, the enchanting combination of flute and harp unites two of Australia’s vibrant young soloists, Emily Granger and Jonathan Henderson, in a recital celebrating the rich heritage of Spain’s national dances and folk music. At the heart of this recital sits a deeply evocative rêverie – Manuel De Falla’s melancholic Nocturno, and the widely popular Seven Spanish Folksongs, a cycle in strikingly diverse regional styles imbued with Hispanic flair.  A cornerstone of the Spanish Baroque, Les Folies d’Espagne of Marin Marais and elegant interpretations of the Habañera by Maurice Ravel and Emmanuel Chabrier will be performed, as well as miniatures by Jacques Ibert and Alphonse Hasselmans and François Borne’s Fantasie Brillante on Themes from Bizet’s Carmen.

Date:  Monday 2 March, 7.30pm

Concert duration:  approx. 60 mins, no interval

Venue:  Delmar Gallery, Trinity Grammar School, entry via Victoria St gate

Tickets:  $15 – $45 plus booking fee.  Book online.
