ReminiSCENT exhibits contemporary artists who explore olfactory experiences. Strongly connected to emotion and memory, the bodily sense of smell portrays a contrast to our highly visual digital world. These scent-based works enforce a sense of intimacy between them and the audience, an added dimension of sensorial engagement. Featured artists include Liz Henderson, Jayne McSwiney and Archie Moore. Curated by Megan Fizell.

Catherine O’Donnell’s latest art exhibition reminisces a suburbia filled with classic 1960s houses and overcrowded classrooms, inspired from her childhood at the Green Valley housing estate.

She hopes to recreate her experience through a drawing installation of modernist public housing that’s become somewhat iconic in the western Sydney landscape.

2168: Estate of tomorrow will showcase at Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre from July 28 to September 16.

Multidisciplinary artist Matt Chun divides his time between Taipei, Sydney, and his permanent open studio in Bermagui - a small fishing village in the Bega Valley Shire and the source of inspiration for his latest series of work. This exhibition showcases 'memento mori and plein air travelogues in watercolour, pencil and mixed media,' says the artist. 'These introspective observational drawings represent the current phase of my ongoing creative engagement with the landscape, material and community of the far south coast of NSW (Yuin country).'
