Entry is free and everyone is welcome. 

In this new exhibition titled Reservoir, contemporary artists from Great Southern bring a personal perspective to the theme of water.  

Guided by Kevin Draper and Barbie Greenshields, both experienced contemporary artists and educators,  15 artists from Albany’s MIX Group Inc. explore the impact of deluge and drought on landscape, water as a source of life, and the visual magic created by bringing the elements of light and water together. 

Albany’s MIX Group has 28 members who work in a range of media. The artists exhibiting in Reservoirinclude Susan Angwin, Lynley Campbell, Kate Campbell-Pope, Jenny Crisp, Annette Davis, Renee Farrant, Barbara Madden, Rachel Mordy, Nat Rad, Kerrie Argent, Nikki Green, Robyn Lees, Jill O’Meehan, Lizzie Riley and Margaret Sanders.

Reservoir will include works ranging from a shimmering water projection and photographs on large light boxes, to traditional basketry installations and embroidered textiles. Other MIX artists explore the theme of water using sound, light and video technology or plastic and recycled aluminium. The exhibition also includes ceramics, painting, drawing and printmaking. 

MIX has presented high-quality, thought-provoking exhibitions in Albany since 1999. Two previous MIX exhibitions toured Statewide through Art on the Move - Hotspot (2006) and HomeFRONT (2015). Reservoir is the first time MIX will manage the tour of one of its exhibition to another venue itself.

Reservoir is on show at ArtGeo Gallery in Busselton from 14 April to 13 May 2018.
