Manly Art Gallery & Museum is to host an exhibition exploring the idea of ‘place over time’, featuring new works by ten artists drawing their inspiration from Sydney Harbour’s dramatic gateway headland, North Head.
The ‘North Head Project’ will focus on the area’s complex Aboriginal and cultural heritage, environmental significance, military history, and unique migration and quarantine stories.
Featured artists are Tamara Dean, Karla Dickens, Helen Earl, Craig Handley, Nathalie Hartog-Gautier, Nick Hollo, Chris Langlois, Susan Milne, Julie Nettleton and Hobie Porter.
‘North Head Project’ will be officially launched at Manly Art Gallery & Museum at 6pm on Friday 8 December, by author and broadcaster Scott Bevan.
The ‘North Head Project’ is presented by Manly Art Gallery & Museum in partnership with the Aboriginal Heritage Office Manly, Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, Q Station Manly and NSW National Parks & Wildlife Service.
Exhibition dates are 8 Dec to 18 February.
Manly Art Gallery & Museum is at West Esplanade, Manly
Open 10am - 5pm Tuesday – Sunday, free entry.
