Richard Orjis

Fri. 23 January - Sun. 1 March 2015 | FREE
Opening Thurs. 22 January, 6 - 8pm

Richard Orjis’ latest exhibition Home invokes the familiarity and warmth of the domestic with a selection of quilts, ceramics, candles and photographs, together with new pottery developed while in Whanganui as the 2014 Tylee Cottage Artist in Residence at the Sarjeant Gallery. Making art that is hand-made is part of the artist’s fascination with time honoured wisdoms and traditions. Recently the artist has been researching the Shaker movement, paying particular attention to the community’s principles around modest living, which is then characterised by simple functional furniture design and humble domestic interiors. In honour of the movement’s homely ways the exhibition features Shaker-styled peg rails from which all the artworks will be suspended.

As part of the Home exhibition there will be a free drop-in art making session for kids on Saturday 14 February, between 10.30am – 12pm. Children will be able to make a contemporary artwork out from a variety of home craft techniques. Then on Saturday 21 February 10am-4.30pm we have a one day only pop up ceramics shop run by Dryburgh Pottery Studio in the gallery space.
