It won’t be the usual opening show event but The Ferry Artists are looking forward to the launch of their upcoming exhibition Rejuvenate on Saturday, July 25 from 4pm 6pm at Wiseman’s Ferry.
The exhibition at the Ferry Artists’ Gallery, Shop 1 and 2 at 5557 Old Northern Road, Wisemans Ferry will showcase the work by members over the past six months of fire, flood and pandemic.
The Ferry Artists Gallery is run by volunteers and is normally open daily between 10am to 4pm. Exhibits include paintings, ceramics, jewellery, glass work, metal and timber sculptures, screen printed fabrics and silk textiles.
Ferry Artists member Carol Gill said the not for profit community gallery was established nearly 20 years ago with the aim of encouraging developing artists but also to provide a local venue for established as well as emerging artists in the region.
“The past 6 months however has seen pressures unknown to our small community following the bushfires, floods and then coronavirus. ”
The Ferry Artists welcome submissions for membership from practising artists and artisans and also, applications for social membership. Membership requires one day duty in the gallery per month.
Visitors are asked to observe social distancing and hygiene protocols in the gallery, to maintain the health and safety of customers and members.
