The Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery at The University of Western Australia is delighted to announce the opening of MATTER, an exhibition of works from the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art focusing on materials and materiality. Featuring works of grit, weight and significance, MATTER invites audiences to reflect on the material choices artists make. The exhibition brings together works created from a wide range of materials, including paintings by Lisa Wolfgramm, Carol Rudyard and Julie Dowling, ceramics by Joan Campbell, the Hermannsburg Potters Group and Toni Warburton, textiles by Eveline Kotai and Rhonda and Susannah Hamlyn, and installation works by Michele Nikou and Sarah Goffman, among many others. ‘The changing states of matter is an apt metaphor for the various transformations that occur as an idea is realised in physical form’, explained exhibition curator and Curator of the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art, Lee Kinsella.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday: 12 – 5pm
