Retracing explores the influence of the local area on artists connected to Willoughby City. Presented as a craft and design based exhibition, an accompanying digital exhibition traces the objects through their artistic sources, history and hidden creative processes. Each artwork is experienced through both the context of gallery presentation, and through the space or creative action that informs the artwork; within the landscape, the community or the artist studio. The relationship between the static display of objects and their other life in the hands of their creators reveal artistic traces embedded within the natural and urban landscape of the Willoughby area.
Featured artists include: Sally Aplin, Reid Butler, Sarah Fitzgerald, Jane Guthleban, Pamela Leung, Denese Oates, Rhonda Pryor, Stefania Riccardi, Cathe Stack, Alma Studholme (with Brett Studholme), Joanna Williams and Sairi Yoshizawa.
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
