Exhibition: Home Grown: The Urban Landscape

As part of the above Biennial this Willoughby City Council curated group exhibition showcases the biodiversity of our local landscape, be it urban, residential or the ever-changing natural flora and fauna. The 17 artists explore how our culturally diverse community views its current environment.

Working across the various mediums of printmaking, painting, drawing, photography, ceramics, sculpture and mixed media, these selected artists also represent a cross-section of experiences and maturity from the emerging to the well-established senior artist.

We are delighted to see our member, Anne Numont, participating in this exciting exhibition.

Night Study #5 has been selected for Home Grown: The Urban Landscape as part of this year’s Willoughby Visual Arts Biennial (WVAB).  This drawing has a lovely exhibition history.  It debuted the first time I entered the North Sydney Art Prize in 2011 and won the Eckersley’s Prize, awarded to an emerging artist.  It was then exhibited as part of my first solo exhibition Night Studies: Seeing Home in 2013.  For a year of my current residency at Primrose Park Artist Studios it has been a daily reminder of why I started my art practice and a good introduction to my work for visitors at our monthly Open Studio Days. Presently, it is on show in Chatswood, a few blocks away from where I went to high school. It makes me feel very connected to my personal history.

Exhibition dates:  6 September – 1 October
Venue:  ArtSpace on the Concourse, 409 Victoria Ave, Chatswood
Hours:  Wed-Fri 11am – 5pm Sat & Sun 11am – 4pm

Other creative activities and events at the festival are listed on the Willoughby Council website
