Lyne Marshall’s RE:Location exhibition at Manning Art Gallery 2nd March – 2nd April 2017
Standing among the results of two years of my creative time, presented now by gallery staff and volunteers with so much love and attention, is an affirming moment. What an adventure it has been delivering the art to Manning Gallery in Taree NSW for the RE:Location exhibition. I have been introduced to a new group of arts workers, who not only love the arts, but do what they do with great enthusiasm. See the VIDEO of setting up here and links to workshops are below.
This exhibition of 14 paintings, 6 digital artworks, 16 sculptures [and 6 Log Lights by my partner Peter Marshall ] started with an overseas venture to visit the homelands of my ancestors who came to Australia in the 18oo’s. It has now culminated with this exhibition, a video and a new book, RE:Location as Inspiration: Creating from Diverse Landscapes
Back in 2015 I wanted to return something of myself to those ancestral lands so I secreted 10 little art-pods, which contained signed images of my artworks for the taking. For this exhibition I have placed 8 new art-pods in the Taree area, and invite the viewers of my exhibition to find them with GPS co-ordinates. The POD LOCATIONS are listed here with the co-ordinates, tips, and approximate distance from the gallery. Enter the numbers into the SEARCH on Google Maps. The art-pods are all on public land and require no digging so if you find one please take an image and return the Pod without bringing attention to its placement.
