Suburbia Exhibition

Our domestic experience is defined by the details – a carefully chosen wallpaper pattern, a table set for an evening meal, a small vegetable garden in the backyard, a balcony with an amazing view, a tree-fort that is perpetually ‘under-construction’. The artists in this exhibition explore where we live and how we define a home.

With a cautious nostalgia, artist Pattie Chalmers borrows imagery from the mid 20th century to create ceramic tableaus that are simultaneously familiar and unsettling. Julia Hepburn creates small dream-like dioramas made of polymer clay and mixed media. Her works are distinctive for their strong psychological quality and elusive narratives. Remembering and re-creating the ‘magical’ spaces of childhood, like blanket and tree forts, Jennie Suddick opens up the definition of home to include communal, ‘do-it-yourself’ spaces whose distinction and power is in their impermanence.

Please join us for the Opening Reception at 2 pm on Sunday, January 13. A brief tour and talk will begin at 3 pm with artists Pattie Chalmers, Julia Hepburn and Curator Sheila McMath. This event is free and all are welcome.

This event is wheelchair accessible.
