Robert McFarlane
THE STILL POINT
Robert McFarlane

2nd Apr > 21st May
Main Gallery

Robert McFarlane has been photographing Australia and Australians for over five decades.  Still Point is a new exhibition which looks through his extensive archive to find images that define his style, that explore how he achieves the intimate and yet iconic portraiture for which he is known and allows the audience to grasp his natural affinity for light.  The exhibition also includes images never intended for publication; his little-known collection of landscape photos and intimate moments with friends and colleagues. 

Still Point combines with the release of a documentary film by Mira Soulio of the same name and a publication of images from the exhibition and film.  This will be an exhibition that allows us insight into not just Australia over the past 50 years, but the world as we view individuals and moments captured by one of Australia’s best documentary photographers.

 
A Bundanon Local Project
HYPERREAL TALES
A Bundanon Local Project

2nd Apr > 21st May
East Gallery

Hyperreal Tales is a video installation of five viewing screens with 12 interweaving stories.  The ideas for the films derive from 22 local participants who have been involved in this three year (2013-2015_ accumulative project.  Stories are told through dance, images, words and music.

Hyperreal Tales is part of Bundanon Trust’s Community Engagement Program which aims to create connections between the local community and some of Australia’s leading artists.  Getting to know each other and discovering the stories and how to tell them has been an important part of the creative process.

Another key aspect of this project has been about making the works accessible, asking us to consider who we see, how we hear and how to describe art.The video installations have captioning for the deaf and hearing impaired and audio descriptions for the blind and vision impaired.

FLOW | BROGERS CREEK TO GERROA BEACH
Leon Gregory

23rd Apr > 21st May
Side Gallery

Captured in 2015, these photos form part of a collection aimed at recording the infinite variety of visual effects generated by the flow of Brogers Creek as it tumbles down through Kangaroo Valley before spilling into the sea, where it then adds to the creation of ephemeral forms and delicate textures in the malleable sands of Gerroa Beach.      

This exhibition forms part of the prestigious 2016 Headon Photographic Festival, and marks the first time that this Festival has been shown in the Shoalhaven Region.
