SENTINELS

20 September - 6 November

Peter Kovacsy, Cosmic Millennium Gathering,1999, Carved Wood

SENTINELS is a solo exhibition featuring works in native timbers and cast glass. For more than 30 years Peter Kovacsy’s contemporary craft & design practice has been galvanised by observations of the local timber workers, forestry industry, and majestic Karri trees surrounding his home and studio in Pemberton.
In the 90’s Peter focused on utilising Karri timber salvaged from the forest floor after clear felling operations near Pemberton. In 1994 he was admitted as a fellow of the Crafts Council of Western Australia in recognition of his commitment to craft practice in the field of wood. In 2003 Peter’s curiosity about “forest – light – place” prompted the introduction of cast glass into his studio practice, bringing an illuminative visual narrative to his recent works that combine timber and cast glass.

Gallery Hours: Monday – Saturday: 10am – 4.30pm, & Sunday: By Appointment

Gallery Tour and Artist Talks: Every Wednesday & Saturday 1pm
