The art and culture of Cumberland is diverse, complex and vibrant. Residents come from 124 countries and the artists in our community represent a variety of art forms in our public spaces, for community celebrations and festivals, art workshops and for exhibitions.
The next exhibition at the Peacock Gallery will be held from Saturday 4 May to Sunday 26 May.
Exhibition Opening Event
The opening event for this exhibition is on Saturday 4 May from 1:30pm to 3:30pm, with food and drinks provided.
Grace Kingston 'Deep Down'
Grace Kingston investigates the relationship between online and real life environments in her immersive sensory installation. Running for 10 minutes viewers will encase themselves in a simulated nature experience that will question our edited/curated online lives, and how they measure up to the real.
Rebecca Gallo 'Lifted'
Rebecca Gallo employs the practice of walking and collecting items to further her connection to the spaces she inhabits. In this exhibition she will present a large scale installation of found materials gathered on walks in the area surrounding the Peacock Gallery and Auburn Botanic Gardens. The sculpture of found materials will tells its own story of the area while also highlighting the items and materials that we are quick to discard.
