India Mark has been selected to be part in NEXT at Sydney Contemporary 2019, a unique showcase of 50 artists under the age of 35. This dynamic new platform provides art lovers the opportunity to discover and acquire accessible work by the next generation of talent.
Co-curated by Wollongong Art Gallery and Aaron Fell-Fracasso, Here + Now celebrates the diverse and unique creative energy of the Wollongong region and includes works by Jessica Cochrane, Tex Crick, Ebony Eden, Misha Harrison, India Mark, Paige Northwood, Nick Santoro and Christopher Zanko.
We are super excited to announce that we are participating in The Sydney Contemporary 2018! We will be exhibiting artworks by India Mark and Gabrielle Adamik. Stay tuned for updates about our progress for this Art Fair in September at Carriageworks.
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.
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.
Congratulations to Egg & Dart artist, India Mark! We’re extremely proud to announce that our very own India Mark is a finalist in this year’s Archibald Prize 2016! Mark chose the frontman, Dane Taylor of local experimental pop band Shining Bird from Austinmer as the subject of her selected portrait.
