Three new exhibitions, For the Love of DOG, Carbon Tax and Pushing the Edges: Exploring Contemporary Printmaking have opened at Manning Regional Art Gallery. For the Love of Dog celebrates one of man’s oldest friends and one of the first 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.
