PREVIEW: Sunday 8 March, 11-3pm COLLECTOR’S TOUR: Sunday 8 March
Messums Wiltshire returns to Mary’s Place, Sydney for a group exhibition featuring some of our best international artists across the genres, including landscape, figurative and abstract painting as well as sculpture and works of art in glass and ceramic. Our Emerging Talent of 2019, decorative artist Tuesday Riddell (whose family live in Australia) will exhibit for the first time down under alongside Australian favourite Bruce Munro who is best known for his world famous light installation Field of Light at Uluru. Bruce will be exhibiting his new two-dimensional abstract works depicting Australian landscapes.
Join us for the art night on Friday 6 March to preview a very special new collection by Japanese ceramic artist Makoto Kagoshima. Based in Kyushu, the southern island of Japan, Makoto’s celebrated ceramics are a fusion of design and heart warming motifs making each object a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art. We are delighted to represent Makoto’s work exclusively in Europe and Australia and to be hosting his first ever show in Sydney. Limited to two per person. Works can be viewed online by request and preference is given to those arriving at the gallery on 8th March.
Other artists exhibiting include the sculptor Laurence Edwards who returns to Mary Place following his previous sell-out show in 2018 and painter Kurt Jackson who has just had two consecutive sell-out exhibitions in the UK.
