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.
