‘Survival: Fight or Flight’
Gallery 1
Six artists with connections to Midland TAFE’s former Environmental Art course explore the concept of Survival: Fight or Flight. Using a variety of mediums the artists delve into issues that question our existence in a world fraught with challenges. An exciting exhibition evoking a juxtaposition of responses by Denise Brown, Peter Dailey, Bev Iles, David Small, Cathy Swioklo and Patricia Tarrant.

‘Altered States’ | Karen Prakhoff Rickman
Gallery 2
In her depiction of landscape, Rickman exploits the potential for mark making and layering inherent in the monotype process. Each layer alters the previous state, simultaneously creating and denying form. Her ambiguous landscapes evoke personal and collective memory: faint, forgotten or altered recollections.

Opening Friday 5 April 7pm – 8:30pm
Exhibition continues 6 April – 19 May
Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm, Saturday & Sunday 11am – 3pm
