A Zen Group Show In Sydney

Sally Tabart
5th December, 2018

Saint Cloche gallery celebrates the feeling of home with CASA, an end-of-year group exhibition.

Featuring the works of 14 Australian artists, Sydney’s Saint Cloche gallery opens their beautiful new group show, CASA, in Paddington tonight. Inspired by the mid-century French sculptor Valentine Schlegel, CASA explores notions of home that extend beyond the physical environment.

In gentle hues from tawny brown to soft violet, the works in CASA are a harmonious balance of paintings, ceramics, and sculptural pieces, as much about the mood created by a sense of home as the things in it. It’s the same feeling you get from walking through the door and having a drink after a long week, or lying back on freshly-washed sheets in a clean bedroom with the window open.

Curated by Saint Cloche director Kitty Wong, the lineup for this 2018 finale show handpicks a really exciting selection of artists from across Australia with art at accessible price points. There are paintings by Heath Newman, Hannah Nowlan, Evi O, and Carissa Karamarko; ceramics by Kelly Murphy, Asahi So and Natalie Rosin, sculptures Carol Crawford and Tracey Deep, and more! If you’re in Sydney, don’t miss out on this incredible show.

CASA
Opening Wednesday, December 5th, 6pm-8pm
December 5th 2018 – January 6th 2019
Saint Cloche Gallery 
37 MacDonald Street
Paddington, New South Wales
