Henry Jock Walker
He's back! Henry Jock Walker is artist in residence on the Coal Coast preparing for his upcoming exhibition 'Re-Entry Ding Repairs' at Egg & Dart 6th - 28th July.
The 5th Annual Egg & Dart Xmas Show opened Friday 8th December,
With less than two weeks to go, we have a few works still available for purchase. We are open Wed through Saturday 11am to 6pm. The show will come down Saturday 23rd December.
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.
Thank you Henry Jock Walker for coming to Thirroul and The Egg & Dart!Our first ever residency period has come to an end. It was such a great and fun time for everyone involved. Walker really gave it all and invited the people of the area to join in the projects. There was epic surf painting moments and mural painting both at Finbox on Lawrence Hargrave Drive and outside PRS Partners on Raymond Road. Colourful scrambled eggs served at various locations, van painting and of course Walker working away in the "Jock's Box" at the gallery.
