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.Read online: https://www.liverpoolchampion.com.au/story/5549671/we-shouldnt-be-labelled-by-our-postcode/

As part of Mugged! Waterloo's May Space Gallery has invited artists to make unique mugs that are wonderful to hold or simply behold. Each Saturday at 11am they are filling purchased mugs with a complementary hot beverage so the gallery-goers can escape the cold and enjoy the shows with a warming drink in hand. This Saturday is a coffee morning, while on June 23 it is all about hot chocolate.
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).'
