Last weeks to see stunning artworks

Two exciting exhibitions are still at Burnie Regional Art Gallery but get in quick before they finish on Sunday the 27th May.

In the Middle Gallery, Push Pull Press: Jennifer Marshall, Dr Yvonne Rees-Pagh and Milan Milojevic brings together a range of printmaking techniques from traditional to digital. The exhibition by three of Tasmania’s master printmakers displays artists at the absolute pinnacle of technique and creativity.

Artist Milan Milojevic’s art work explores cultural identity and the complexities of living in a multi-cultural society. By combining digital and traditional printing techniques, his multi-layered images are inspired by traditional engravings of the 18th and 19th Centuries.

Dr Yvonne Rees-Pagh’s etchings were motivated through a story about the destruction and desolation of an island once thought to be Eden. A combination of climate change and civil war has left the former paradise in grave danger. Rees-Pagh’s story of Paradise Lost is heartbreakingly beautiful.

Painter and printmaker Jennifer Marshall has worked as a professional artist for fifty years and brings her vast experience to a series of work based on interpretations of Crossing the Red Sea.

In the Main Gallery Burnie Regional Art Gallery: 40 Years, presents an exhibition of selected artworks from the City’s permanent collection to celebrate the Gallery’s 40th birthday.

Mayor Alvwyn Boyd said, “The Burnie Regional Art Gallery is a success story in our community. An exhibition from the collection is like seeing old friends but there are always great things to see at BRAG.”

Both exhibitions will be on display Sunday 27 May 2018. The Gallery is open free to the public from 10 am to 4.30 pm weekdays and from 1.30pm to 4 pm Saturday, Sunday and public holidays.

BRAG is operated and maintained by the Burnie City Council and supported by our corporate partners, the Friends of Burnie Regional Art Gallery and assisted through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts.
