Three women, Three artists, Three journeys by Jo Day, Deborah Barrett, Ann Rattey
Friday 21 October 2022
The back lanes of Newtown, encounters with lions in the Okovango Delta, the astonishing bead markets of Kenya and Tanzania and the fragrance of market spices in Morocco have all provided inspiration for Journeys, an exhibition presented by artists Jo Day, Debora Barrett and Ann Rattey.
There are purple crocodiles, leaping leopards, cloaks like surreally spotted goats, collages telling migration stories and paintings that fuse the exotic and the everyday.
The artists draw inspiration from real and metaphorical journeys to create their latest exhibition at Chrissie Cotter Gallery.
The exhibition will showcase new works featuring painting, printmaking, collage, ceramics, sculpture, textiles and wearable art. It is full of joy and whimsy, does not take itself too seriously, and is not afraid to be pretty!
The exhibition will also include new works by Khaki and Rose, a design partnership of Jo Day and Ann Rattey.
Based in the Inner West, Khaki and Rose feature hand stitching, unconventional embroidery, fabric painting and upcycling of precious discarded fabrics to create ranges of wearable art and home furnishings, with a focus on handbags, lamps and jewellery.
Exhibition dates: 26 October – 6 November 6 2022 (Thursday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm)
