Inspired by neuropsychological research into the workings of memory and imagination, and made in collaboration with psychologists, mental health specialists and participants with lived experiences of suicide survival, this compelling immersive experience invites us to ‘invent the next ten minutes’ – something that is a challenge when we find ourselves inhabiting the ‘edge of the present’.

BESPOKE: Print, Paper and Process
Warwick’s Cattle Dog Printmakers celebrate their seven year anniversary with an exhibition showcasing a form of the visual parts that closely blends art with crafty. The exhibition comprises printed works by group members which have been produced using a range of techniques including lino cut, lithograph, collagraph, etching and engraving.
In recent years the group has extended their practice by exploring bookmaking, collage and papier mache. A collaborative installation “Bespoke” consists of several small and unique three dimensional works all made of paper. The exhibition also included a visual narrative illustrating the interesting and diverse craft of the printmaker.

Lightning Without Flash
In his solo exhibition Lightning Without Flash, documentary photographer Joe Ruckli seeks to unearth the idiosyncratic qualities of Lightning Ridge, a rural mining town in northern New South Wales, famous for its large deposits of Black Opal.
The featured objects and photographs suggest an inhospitable landscape that belies the beauty of its gems and precarious labour hidden below. Scorched by the sun and secluded deep within Australia’s vast interior, the exhibition reveals strange and surreal glimpses of life on the minefields and its fringes; a subterranean world where prospectors chase their fortune and hermits search for somewhere to retreat or disappear.

From the Ground Up
A collection of works from members, focussing on the phrase From the Ground Up. Small clubs like the Warwick Potters begin because likeminded people wanted to come together to create, learn and share their potting journey. They start small and grow into thriving community hubs. Members come and go but the club house is always there, much like our natural landscape, it blooms and thrives and hibernates through the seasons, natural disasters can devastate the landscape but once that has passed it blossoms again in all its glory.
Like many small community clubs that have suffered throughout the pandemic as they struggle to adapt to the post pandemic world, and our natural landscapes after bushfires and floods we are rebuilding from the ground up

The Ozquilt Network Inc. is Australia’s organisation for makers of art quilts and supporters of art quilts as a medium. Established a little over 30 years ago, the Network’s vision is to raise the profile and status of art quilters, art quilts and art quilt making in Australia.
Australia Wide 8 is the latest exhibition in a series that have toured the nation since 2008. The juried exhibition features 34 art quilts that showcase innovation in the art quilt movement. The works highlight the scope and variety of the ‘stitched and layered textile medium’.

Abundance - Paper Quilt Community Project
Warwick Art Gallery invites you to be part of a collaborative community project. Together we will be creating a large-scale paper quilt that will be displayed at the Gallery to coincide with Australia Wide 8, an Ozquilt Network exhibition and the Jumpers and Jazz in July festival.
You are invited to design your own square that will form part of the quilt. Your design must respond to the theme abundance. You are welcome to interpret this theme in any manner using any two-dimensional medium. For those that feel they are less artistically inclined, you may wish to write a response to the theme on your square. Your design must cover one side of the square only and must fit within the inner border of the square. Please also write your first name and tick the box that corresponds with your age group on the back of the square.
Blank squares can be collected from the Gallery, packs of squares are available for schools upon request. Completed squares must be returned to the gallery by 20th May. There will be a designated mailbox at the gallery for completed squares. Squares can also be mailed to the gallery using the postal address PO BOX 775 Warwick QLD 4370

In Pursuit of Knowledge, Excellence and Service
Landscape and nature are important to me; observing the colours, the changes, the shape, the peace, beauty of our environment is what I explore in my art. Seeing the beauty in what surrounds us is important to me, so beauty is what is depicted. There may be harshness in the landscape but beauty lies in the colour, textures, contrasts and the way the various elements interact and influence each other.
A tree may be dead but there is beauty in the structure of the branches and the trunk, how they come together and meld with each other. The colours can be faded, greyed, blackened but the story and beauty of the tree is still there and continuing.
Man-made structures have the potential to be part of this too with colours, reflections, shadows, light connecting them and allowing a merger with the beauty of the natural environment.
