‘Granville Nights’ debut

A SERIES of after-hours art and cultural programs at Granville Centre Art Gallery, ‘Granville Nights’ launches this Thursday, November 30, 5-9pm, with all invited to attend.

It will feature family-friendly art workshops, music by DJ Levins, a thrift shop book sale, storytime presented by Westwords, food available to purchase and the official opening of The Good exhibition by Anna Louise Richardson.
Centred around rural life exploring ideas of intergenerational exchange, parenthood and identity, The Good points to the necessary act of radical optimism needed to seek goodness in all things.
“My work is autobiographical, chronicling my life through the objects around me, objects that are steeped in meaning and memory, yet are present in many peoples’ realities,” says Richardson who grew up on a beef cattle farm.
“The scale of my drawings bring their stories to life. I hope that The Good will bring something familiar to audiences and spark a connection between my life and theirs.”
Curators Rachel Arndt and Lee-Anne Hall said: “Richardson’s work has incredible resonances to communities across the country, many who have experienced prolonged periods of hardship.
“The Good is both a catalyst and opportunity to explore what the ‘good’ means within individuals, families and communities.”
Granville Nights will return on Thursday, December 7, Friday, January 19, and Friday, February 2.
