Step inside the world of Winter, where ice and snow become the harbingers of wonder and mystery.

Winter draws on a range of works from the Gallery’s permanent collection to explore the psychological and aesthetic dimensions of the darkest season.  Through these works we experience winter not just as a seasonal chill but a complex and compelling state of mind.

Winter showcases a diverse range of works spanning painting, printmaking, photography and ceramic.  While cumulatively exploring the condition of being cold, each work explores the individual facets of the season through means that are unique and engaging.

The exhibition features works by Raymond Arnold, Judy Dorber, William Breen, Kaye Green, Hiroe Swen, Gail Nichols and Stephen Wickham, aside others.
