Once in a Blue Moon
Belconnen Artists’ Network is excited to announce—TIME—an exhibition at the Belconnen Community Centre Gallery from 18-28 March 2013 (26 Chandler St, Belconnen).
TIME exhibition will be opened by Dr Eva Papp from the Australian National University, Research School of Earth Sciences at 6:00pm on Wednesday 20 March 2013.
The Belconnen Community Centre Gallery is open from 9–5 on week days from 18-28 March 2013.
This exhibition’s theme of time is most appropriate as Belconnen Artists’ Network’s contribution to the centenary of Canberra.
The artists have explored multiple facets of time in extraordinary ways through physical changes, analogy, symbology and philosophy; using a wide range of media such as photography, sculpture, painting, digital media and textiles. The meanings and impacts of time are expressed in personal ways reflecting how each artist responds to and interacts with time.
Some of the ways the artists describe their work are:
• Natural peaceful contemplation
• Lost time
• A moment
• Aging process
• Life is finite
• Geological earth time
Artists represented in this exhibition have a wide range of experiences and have exhibited in Canberra, interstate and internationally.
TIME builds on their successful exhibition in the Belconnen Arts Centre last year and positions Belconnen Artists’ Network as a significant artist’s group in Canberra.
The opening speaker, Dr Eva Papp has experience interpreting visual imagery with remote sensing, multispectral imagery and mapping. Her deep knowledge of geological time gives her experiences of time on an expansive scale. It is a great honour to welcome Dr Eva Papp to the Belconnen Community Gallery to open the Time exhibition.
