OUT OF THE DARKNESS, INTO THE LIGHT!
David Barnett and gallery staff members, Ann Connolly, Clare McCullough, Cameron Quade, and Makenzie Swart curated this exhibition. It is a selection from the gallery’s collection of 6000+ artworks. The broad spectrum of works selected for this show explores the extremes of our emotions - from fear and anxiety to happiness and serenity. The title serves as a metaphor for the re-emergence of artworks, where some have not seen daylight for 20+ years, soon to be reanimated in the eyes of our visitors. Fluid and open to multiple interpretations, the title also reflects the idea of light and hope for the end of the pandemic as we continue to uncover our faces and share new memories together.
OUT OF THE DARKNESS, INTO THE LIGHT! will be on display starting April 22, 2022 through July 13, 2022.
