The Long Dark Night: German Expressionism 1914-1945

The Long Dark Night: German Expressionism 1914-1945

Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Germany between the Wars was a country under the unrelenting shadow of revolution and radicalism.

From the cultural sophistication of the Weimar Republic to the rise of Nazism, early twentieth century Germany experienced unprecedented rises and falls. With its political and social climate undergoing constant upheaval, the artistic climate gave rise to a period known as ‘Expressionism’.

Presented in association with Olsen Irwin Gallery, Sydney, The Long Dark Night reveals the day-to-day reality of life in Germany during this extraordinary period of history.

The exhibition features works by Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Conrad Felixmüller, George Grosz, Erich Heckel, Käthe Kollwitz, Max Pechstein, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff.

The Craft Revolution - Works from the Collection

The flowering of the arts/craft movement in the 1970s created a new audience for art galleries, and fostered an environment where ‘everyone was an artist’.

Drawing on methods and materials traditionally found and practiced in the home, the craft movement ignited a level of participation and interest in the arts that had never been seen before. It included textile, wood, leather, ceramic, metal and glass, to create objects that were often both functional and decorative.

As the centre for crafts in Gippsland, the Sale Regional Arts Centre (today Gippsland Art Gallery) nurtured this explosion in creativity through exhibitions and acquisitions. The Craft Revolution dips into the Gallery’s extensive holdings of 1970s and 80s craft to relive the excitement and ‘can do’ attitude of the period.

Helen Wright - The Edge of Reason

Helen Wright - The Edge of Reason

from March 23, 2016 @ 9:00 AM until May 29, 2016 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Helen Wright takes audiences into a universe of dreams where nothing is quite what it seems.

Her fantastical worlds propose a melding of a medieval past and a possible future, full of suggestion and intrigue. Her works range from bright hues and birdlife, through to darkly dystopian architectures that recall the demoninhabited interiors of Bosch and Piranesi.

Throughout this wild ensemble Tasmanian-based Wright maintains a balance of sorrow and humour, cast in a playful mix of painting, printing, sculpture and drawing. Hers is an art as an expression of life; of its loves, joys and agonies.
