ALBURY LIBRARY MUSEUM

GODS AND MONSTERS

UNTIL APRIL 7

Howard Daniel was an avid and eclectic collector.  A true renaissance man, Daniel’s passion to collect inspired his research for writing books and acquiring diverse sculptures and exotic figurines. Daniel was an empathic individual, advocating for human rights and became involved in international affairs. This took him into many countries; South America, Africa, Eastern Europe, particularly in Romania and Yugoslavia and China at the time of the Revolution. The Daniel Gift Collection came to AlburyCity through the offices of Mr. Justice J.F. Nagle, a long-time friend.

This exhibition showcases these stunning Gods and Monsters.

Each photo depicts the subject in their every-day work environment, and is accompanied by a short commentary including name, hometown, years working in New York and the amount of money sent to Mexico each week.

MARK STONER: THE SHAPE OF THE LAND

UNTIL APRIL 16

“The shape of land is evocative of our imaginings of landscape and poses several questions. What is land, its form and material? Do we imagine verdant rolling hills, an infrared mineralogical survey map, a topographical map of the high country, or a degraded saline ancient drainage basin? Is landscape a romantic vista of plains and far off mountain peaks or an analytical outcome of complex interactions of time, geomorphic forces and weathering?” - Mark Stoner 2013. This exhibition explores these themes bringing together various installation pieces for the first time. Mark Stoner has exhibited nationally and has received several grants and residencies. His work is held in the collections of state and regional galleries including the National Gallery of Australia and he has also completed many public commissions.

UNTIL APRIL 23

FAMILIAR ENVIRONMENTS: ANTHEA KEMP:

Anthea Kemp focuses on her reaction to an introduced urban environment in which she now lives, in comparison to the familiar natural landscape she grew up in. With the Warby Ranges at her back door for 18 years, Kemp then moved to Melbourne. It is through her subconscious reaction to the urban and the natural, the organic and the geometric, that she has juxtaposed an abstract landscape in her paintings.

REGIONAL ART AND DESIGN — VCE 2013

MARCH 15 TO APRIL 5

Victoria’s most inspiring and high achieving 2013 VCE artists will showcase their work in the annual exhibition, Regional Art & Design (RAD). RAD is an exhibition of painting, photography, sculpture, mixed media, ceramics, film, animation, textiles, drawing, installation and printmaking produced by VCE Art and VCE Studio Arts students. Education programs include introductory lectures, folio viewings, floor talks, sessions with exhibitors and the curator. With a dynamic approach to presentation, which includes the exhibition of student preparatory support material such as folios and notebooks, Regional Art Design provides students the opportunity for artistic recognition in a public art space. RAD also gives fellow upcoming students a chance to view selected works in the lead up to their own VCE studies, providing insight, education and inspiration for their years ahead.

ALBERT TUCKER — PORTRAITS

UNTIL JUNE 29

Albert Tucker was a major figure in the Australian modernist movement, which challenged the foundations of traditional art practice and adopted a spontaneous and visionary approach to the creative process. Throughout his career, he painted significant portraits of his contemporaries and loved ones. Sitters included Tucker’s colleagues in the so called Angry Penguins group or ‘Heide circle’ — Joy Hester, Sidney Nolan, Arthur Boyd and John Perceval. This exhibition presents 10 of Tucker’s most important portraits that transition through various periods of his artistic development, leaving a thread that connects a great portion of his oeuvre.
