Curated by Abbie Read, INTERIORS focuses on representations of domestic spaces. Place and Belonging is the 2017 exhibition theme of Waterfall Arts. A curated collection of works by local well-known artists, this exhibition directs the gaze inward. The owner’s presence is clearly felt, but the human form is not the central idea; the work shows the interior spaces we occupy, rather than us in them. Artists include: Alison Rector, Louise Bourne, Gideon Bok, Kris Engman, Sarah Swajkos, David Estey, Jessica Ives, and Heath Paley. Read more…
