Still Life in the Old Girl Yet
New Dates for our virtual opening ... Friday November 5 (5pm) to Sunday December 5 2021

A solo exhibition at Gallery 76 by artist Joy Smith.  Joy's work is bright and features still life depictions of everyday objects. Come and examine how Joy has transformed these objects, celebrating them and rendering them in texture and with threads.

Although the gallery is open to the public 7 days a week, we have decided to take the exhibition opening online due to ongoing capacity restrictions.  Join us at 5pm AEST on Friday November 5 for the official opening which includes a virtual tour and a brief address by Joy.  The opening will be hosted over Zoom.  Tickets are free and bookings are essential and can be made here.

Saturday January 29 to Sunday February 27 2022

Participants will learn how to absorb their neighbourhood environs, ‘mapping place' and translating this personal experience onto cloth. Click here for upcoming workshop details.

Barbara has been teaching art and drawing to students and adults for over thirty years and her workshop is sure to be a unique and valuable experience.
