Drop in and make

The artworks in Local Rhythms and Actions were chosen by 11 residents from Woolloomooloo, our neighbouring suburb in inner-city Sydney. They worked alongside Art Gallery staff to select items from our collection that express themes such as local art and history, family and the role that mothers play in the community.

View the exhibition then focus on the intricate shellwork of Bidjigal artist Esme Timbery, who learned to collect and sort shells as a young girl from her mother, grandmothers and aunts. Sort your own paper shells by type, size and colour and make an artwork that expresses a connection to where you live and your local area.

Drop in anytime between 11am and 3.30pm.
