In Our Nature
a Donaldson Family Exhibition
Bowral Art Gallery, Short St, Bowral
Friday, October 20 – Sunday, October 29, 2023
Opening hours: 10am to 4pm every day
Celebrating 28 years with their 9th exhibition, all four siblings of the Donaldson family, Karin, Mike, Chris & Sadhana, will present a collection of works in different mediums.
Our official opening will be on Friday evening, October 20, from 6.00pm to 8.30pm with drinks and nibbles, during which time the artists will give a short talk about their work.
KARIN has lived in the far western NSW town of Wilcannia for over 40 years. She has many close relationships within the local Indigenous community and has produced several acclaimed books with them that celebrate the Paakantji and Ngiyampaa cultures. Her work for this exhibition is in pastels, prints, mixed media and sculpture, and includes landscapes of the outback.
MIKE has lived in WA for 50 years and has been an enthusiastic photographer since his very young years, producing many fine books. For this exhibition Mike will present a collection of images and stories of Mount Trafalgar and other spectacular sites in the Prince Regent River area of the Kimberley region of Western Australia, one of Australia's most remote locations.
CHRIS has lived in Mittagong since 1980. Sharing a passion for film & darkroom in teen years with brother Mike, Chris continues to enjoy this discipline alongside digital work. His focus for this exhibition is on birds, landscapes and seascapes, with locations that include Iceland, Lord Howe Island, and outback Australia.
SADHANA lives in Hazelbrook, and graduated with a Master in Ceramics degree from ANU in 2019, the culmination of a long involvement with ceramics from childhood. Since our last exhibition in 2020 she has built a large wood-fired kiln at her home in the Blue Mountains and will exhibit sculptures and pots using a variety of glazes and firings.
