Gathering Room

Exhibition dates: October 8 to November 1 2014
Opening: October 11, 3pm to 5pm 2014

In her third solo show at the gallery, The Gathering Room, Wendy Stavrianos lives up to her formidable reputation. Exhibiting continuously since 1967 (including six solo shows in regional and state galleries, Perspecta at the Art Gallery of NSW in 1986, a nationally touring solo show in 1988-89 and five times finalist in the Sulman Prize), her work is held in the National Galleries of Australia and Victoria, the Art Gallery of Western Australia, GOMA in Brisbane, as well as regional and university galleries and private collections.

In The Gathering Room, painting and sculpture are in dialogue, filling the spaces in both two and three dimensions. It is an exhibition where major pieces such as Conversation with Last Summer's Shadow and Room for Bellini sit alongside intimate drawings and diminutive sculptural figures.
