The work of three Manning Valley artists are currently adorning the walls of Manning Regional Art Gallery in Taree.
'Coalescence' is a joint exhibition for Laura Southwell and Amber Carbury, while ‘Perpetual Motion’ is the work of Satu Bushell.
The official openings were held at the Macquarie Street gallery on Saturday, with a big crowd in attendance.
'Coalescence' encapsulates the journey between two life-long friends and the unique interpretations gathered from similar experiences and interests.
Amber and Laura have created paintings that address concepts such as: life and death, beauty and the grotesque, natural and synthetic, order and chaos, real and imaginary, and past and present.
Satu’s 'Perpetual Motion' takes a fascinating look at electromagnetic fields and how they connect humans and the natural world.
Both exhibitions are open until Sunday, August 27.
In addition to these exhibitions, artist Di Podmore is undertaking The Wall Project until the July 30.
Di is creating prints (monotypes) based on her explorations of a site or particular aspect of Taree and its surrounds, by using handmade gelatine plates.
The public is invited to join her in her explorations of the area and take part in the gelli printmaking process.
Manning Regional Art Gallery is open 10am to 4pm Wednesday to Saturday and from 1pm to 4pm on Sundays.
