ORANGE Regional Gallery is set to shine tonight when three new exhibitions open at 6.30pm.
Misanthropology: The World Art of Adam Rish, In and Out of Abstraction and Built for the Bush should satisfy any art lovers’ curiosity gallery director Alan Sisley said.
“The gallery’s going to look really good once this is together,” Mr Sisley said.
Misanthropology: The World Art of Adam Rish headlines the exhibitions and is a cross-cultural collaboration of world art.
“He’s [Adam Rish] almost singularly responsible for the world art movement,” Mr Sisley said.
Over the years Mr Rish has collaborated with tribal artists across the world in areas including Indonesia, Tonga, Turkey, the USA and Australia.
“You’ll see all sorts of comment and just how the culture’s changing,” Mr Sisley said.
“It’s a survey of about 40 years.”
Also opening tonight will be Built for the Bush, an exhibition by the Historic Houses Trust.
“It’s really about sustainability with modern and old architecture,” Mr Sisley said.
He said the travelling exhibition featured different approaches to sustainability in housing over the years.
Finally, the In and Out of Abstraction exhibition by Peter Griffen will also open tonight.
The abstract artist uses a lot of bright colours in his landscape-inspired artworks.
“It’s a survey over about 25 years and there’s a whole range of styles he’s used over the years,” Mr Sisley said.
Tonight’s opening will kick off at 6.30pm at the Orange Regional Gallery.
Peter Griffen will hold a floor talk tomorrow at 11am to discuss his artworks in the In and Out of Abstraction exhibition.
All exhibitions run until Sunday, March 10. Entry is free.
