Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery
The David Fairbairn & Aleph Geddis Exhibition
Line is the foundation of David Fairbairn's art: from a density of line work, form emerges. In this exhibition of large scale portraiture, Fairbairn works with etching, extending his previous exploration of drawing by working directly on the copper plate.
The sculptural works of Aleph Geddis live at the intersection of traditional methods and modernist forms. While there remains a consistent engagement with the simple elegance of natural forms, his recent works explores the essence of the Platonic solids.
Entry is free and the gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10.00am-4.00pm.
For more information ring : 6648 4863, or visit the Gallery website.
