Response Exhibition: Colours of Dalby
Our gallery’s answer to the ‘Colour and Response’ Mervyn Moriarty Touring Exhibition, Colours of Dalby, is a collection of artwork and ephemera from the period, a video of interviews with three artists and a colour theory workshop.
The main philosophies promoted by Mervyn Moriarty were concerning colour, light and place. His tutelage resulted in significant technical advances for artists in their search to translate their environment into visual art. To illustrate this phenomenon, a display of artworks by local artists during this period will be exhibited, including images by Jo Smiles, Jack Wilson and Joan Bauer. Also, on display will be the artistic studies resulting from the colour theory workshop facilitated by our ambassador artist Trish Callaghan, in which Mervyn Moriarty’s colour theory was explained and demonstrated. Another direct response to Mervyn Moriarty’s influence on the art produced in the region will be shown via a video, wherein three of his students are interviewed discussing Mervyn Moriarty’s impact on their art practice. Ephemeral historical material will also be on display, in particular photographs of the intrepid artist and pilot, Mervyn Moriarty.
Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm, Saturday 10am – 2pm
