Manning Regional Art Gallery Launches Three New Exhibitions Starting March 25 | Manning River Time


The Manning Regional Art Gallery is launching three exciting new exhibitions. For the Love of DOG, Carbon Tax, and Pushing the Edges: Exploring Contemporary Printmaking will launch Friday, March 25 at 6 p.m. The exhibition launch party is a great opportunity to explore the new shows, meet the artists and socialize with friends. The exhibitions will run from March 24 to May 14, 2022. For the Love of Dog celebrates one of man’s oldest friends and one of the earliest animals depicted in art. Curated by the gallery’s deputy director, Jane Hosking, this exhibition highlights the range of depictions of the humble dog by Australian artists. The exhibition features paintings, limited edition prints, drawings and sculptures by Michael Bell, Geoff Harvey, Stephen Bird, Robbie Crane, Michelle Dawson, Jane Grealy, Fiona Knox, Penny Ruthberg, Zoe Tweedale, Emily Valentine and Deborah Williams. The Carbon Tax is Fiona Lee’s personal response to political commentary on climate change and the bushfire crisis. Fiona lost her home and studio to the catastrophic bushfires of November 2019. She is calling on the government to recognize the link between the firestorms, the resulting devastation and climate change. She used the burnt remains of her home as evidence to communicate this through her art. In Pushing the Edges: Exploring Contemporary Printmaking, artists Fran Alexander, Faye Collier, Pat Davidson, Pat Land, Di Podmore and Kath Soper use traditional techniques and create new works in unexpected ways. The Manning Regional Art Gallery offers diverse and stimulating cultural and artistic experiences and the annual program is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW. The launch is open to all and is a fundraising event for the Friends of the Gallery.
