The need to collect and contain stuff - sometimes this need manifests into an obsession with collecting and containing.
People and creatures drift in and out of our lives - leaving small mementos of their friendship and love.
This is Penny's first solo exhibition with a variety of jewellery and small objects on display and for sale.
“This is an exhibition for everyone, if you wish to be challenged, amused or tempted, there is a variety of jewellery, critters in cages and remnants contained. Collections of remnants from travels, animals, tip shop visits, broken toys etc that have shared my environment form part of this exhibition of jewellery and small objects”.

See this exhibition of climate emergency art which expresses Debra's and in many ways the world's grief. Here is Art that pokes and prods you, moves you, digs into your heart. Debra's solo exhibition is expressing her 'soul nostalgia'.
Collages with photos of children from early Australia are displaced into a frightening future. This will give you a sense of unease. Art to make you ponder our fragile place in time.
Our grand children will not share the earth with birds and trees like our grand parents did. Debra's expressive artworks will give you pause. Time to react with your heart.
The exhibition continues until 16th November.
Friday 8 November 10.30am to 1.30pm
FREE Demonstration by the artist
In this demonstration Debra will layer on acrylic paint , searching for a place deep inside herself that has strong feelings. She will then look at her expressive mark making to see what collage she will use that might add to the story.
Quote: 'My soul is grieving for our lost ecology. My fear that we have no future oozes out onto the canvas'.
Some time for discussion of ideas and methods will be interspersed with the demonstration. Tea and coffee supplied bring your own lunch,
