OF TIME AND PLACE
SAMUEL ELYARD

Main Gallery

Something of an unsung hero, Samuel Elyard arrived in the Shoalhaven in 1868 and died here in 1910, and during this time recorded buildings, landscape and river in art, mostly watercolour, that should be celebrated as one of the treasures of our region.

This exhibition surveys his watercolours of the area from his first to last works, and briefly looks at works in oil, drawing and photography. Curated by Max Dingle.

LOST IN WASTE: A LANDFILL ODYSSEY
A cooperative project between Waste Services (Shoalhaven City Council) and Shoalhaven Arts Centre and Regional Gallery

Access Gallery,East Gallery

Shoalhaven City Council Waste Services contracted the creative services of Shoalhaven City Arts Centre to present LOST IN WASTE: A Landfill Odyssey.

The need for awareness of the mounting issue of waste management facing the Shoalhaven drives this exhibition which innovatively reconfigures waste into resource. LOST IN WASTE features artwork from the Dingle-Hughes Collection and selected artists.

The exhibition includes a number of family friendly activities:

  • Take an A5 photo of your garbage and add it to the landfill exhibit! Or, send the photo through to council@shoalhaven.nsw.gov.au and we will add it for you (put Lost in Waste in the subject line)

  • Visual art exercises linked to artworks

  • Write your comments on the blackboard

  • See inside the Bomaderry recycling plant - plenty of film footage to make you ponder…..

Coming Soon

  • Lost in Waste log book run for young drivers & FREE Workshops

  • Join the Magical Mystery Tour. Contact Avalynne Wilby at Council's Waste Services Section, phone 4429 3462

A RECYCLING ADVENTURE
Samuel Elyard

Side Gallery

This inventive project, created by Shoalhaven City Council Waste Services, highlights the concern around the 1000 tonnes of textiles disposed of each year in the Shoalhaven. The members of the St Georges Basin Creative Craft Group and the G6 Group of Artists have worked on interpreting a number of Samuel Elyard landscapes.

These works are on display at the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre to complement the Samuel Elyard: Of Time and Place exhibition in the Main Gallery. The original Samuel Elyard paintings may be seen at the Lady Denman Maritime Museum, Huskisson.

BAY
Julie Love

Foyer Gallery

For the artist, Jervis Bay, with its many changing moods, is both an inspiration and a meditative experience. This exhibition records how the motion of the sea has a metamorphic effect on objects, shells, rocks etc., creating a look of movement within the form. Sometimes she feels the bay is like a secret map from the sea. A kind of alchemy occurs.
