THE NAVIGATORS

 

VERA HATTON GALLERY

 

This exhibition explores the Navigators who have shaped our world  and the technology that enabled them to make it safely back again - mostly! There were spectacular ship-wrecks and events that made these some of the bravest or foolhardy men of their time.  Perhaps William Bligh's abilty to navigate a small open boat 7,000 kilometers to safety in Java  with his men after the mutiny was shaped by his experiences sailing with Captain Cook, these stories and more

 

Come on a journey through time as we explore the people, the technology and the events over 4 centuries and see how exploration of space still utilises some of the same concepts.

 

The exhibition uses graphics, and objects from the museum's Halloran Collection.

The artist’s empathy with the natural world finds expression in works of exquisite detail and mystery, from charcoal and mixed-media sketches and drawings to paintings, prints and sculptures. These are made from things seen, felt, gathered – or gifted – on the rural property where she has lived for fifteen years. Hers are poetic works, at times disturbing, elegiac, but always pleasing to the eye.

An exhibition of  colourful paintings and ceramics inspired by animals and family connections, Libby calls them ‘my friends’, creating a naïve style influenced by involvement in textiles, ceramics, painting and mosaics.

Her hand built ceramics are described as painterly, haptic, tactile and sensuous and are related to her needlework. The works offer a glimpse into the other world of the imagination and subconscious.
