Curated by Sandra Murray, these five female artists are connected by personal investigations of nature in their art practices, ranging from the minutiae of the landscape to the natural environment and the sky above. An underlying sensibility and sensitivity weaves through this intricate array of artworks: Lorraine Biggs (painting, works on paper), Claire Bushby (textiles, works on paper), Penny Coss (painting, wall drawing), Kate Campbell-Pope (textiles, sculpture), Kati Thamo (textiles, original prints). This is the first time that the artists have all exhibited together.
