Drawing from the wealth of art talent within the local area and in The Egg & Dart's community, this exhibition brings together a selection of The Egg & Dart's stable of artists and a few of the gallery's friends. We're very pleased to welcome artists, Lynda Draper, Julia Flanagan and Paul Ryan to join The Egg & Dart's, Rob Howe, Frank Nowlan, India Mark, Nick Santoro and Chris Zanko.
We are very proud to present Frank Nowlan's second solo exhibition "Old and New". As the title infers, this exhibition is a collection of previously unreleased artworks and new paintings by Thirroul local artist, Frank Nowlan.
Sixteen artists question the value we invest in places, spaces and objects from everyday life. Sentiment is a co-curated exhibition that explores notions of sentimentality that exists in the realms of imagination and personal experience. Artists were invited to shape and express their thoughts on the things that create emotional connection and disconnection. Using a variety of media, the works move between light and dark, fact and fiction, interest and disengagement.
For the fourth year in a row The Egg & Dart Xmas Show yet again drew a queue of anticipating visitors at opening night. With 30 artists and 200 works, the familiar theme of 12 x 12 cm artworks in all kinds of different media are dressing the walls from floor to ceiling. We are also super excited to have artist Rosie Deacon's Fun Foam Koalas added to the mix this year. Last day of the exhibition is 24th December.
The Egg and Dart Gallery finds inspiration and provocation in being a gallery outside of the large cities that, historically, have been perceived as the most important centres of art. The gallery is located in Thirroul, a village on the coast between Sydney and Wollongong. The area has a distinct history that inflects the practices of artists that work in the area, but has also, historically, looked to the north for sustenance. However, this model of dependence is being thoroughly challenged.
