Traditional ceramic styles imbued with meaty metaphor burst the seams of this solo exhibition by Gerry Wedd, showcasing the breadth of this iconic artist’s career.

Willow pattern ceramics submerged in political jibes, classic urns decorated with lyrical portraits, garniture figurines poised in confrontational narratives, Gerry Wedd’s work is a day at the beach - with a smash of homebaked reality pie in your face.

This JamFactory Icon 2016 touring exhibition has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.

You are invited to the exhibition opening on Fri 6 April 2018, 6 – 8pm Manly Art Gallery & Museum To be opened by Paul Clarke, documentary filmmaker A Day with Gerry Wedd

Sat 7 April, 10.30am – 3pm Join Gerry Wedd on a walk through the exhibition in a discussion about the development of his ideas and work. A light lunch will then be provided, followed by a 3 hour demonstration by the artist.
