Ivan Durrant: Marmalade Skies Through Opal Eyes focuses on the most recent paintings of the highly regarded Australian artist with landscapes of the local Western District and still-life of his studio.

Durrant’s career has been marked by controversy and social commentary. His enduring exploration of themes like animal slaughter and rural life exemplifies his continued ability to provoke thought and evoke emotion through art.

In this exhibition with Hamilton Gallery, Durrant will showcase some of his most well-known and loved paintings.

New Exuberance celebrates the work of more than 30 textile creatives and includes 10 commissioned works produced by designers associated with the JamFactory. This exhibition acknowledges the rich diversity of textile-based practices in contemporary art, design and fashion in Australia right now.

Textile design today is a vibrant boundary-blurring creative field. Moving through disciplines – graphic, furniture and product design, fashion and the visual arts – it manifests as surface patterning, material experimentation and transfiguration, storytelling and conceptual ideas. 

Collaborations in the fashion industry are on the increase, forged by creatives such as Romance Was Born, Iordanes Spyridon Gogos, Grace Lillian Lee and initiatives such as First Nations Fashion + Design. The skyrocketing visibility within First Nations practices is partly due to the passionate vision of new enterprises and reinforced by the meaningful and covetable textile designs being produced by artists in the Top End and remote art centres and collectives.


Join us in the gallery for a fun kids holiday workshop inspired by our current exhibitions using fashion and colour. We will discover and learn about some of the art on display and using our inspiration create fun fashion inspired collages!
