For Visual Story Telling
Welcome to The Write Gallery, and its revolving calendar of exhibitions and shows which aim to make imagination a destination, curiosity a way of life, and play an essential to understanding.
March 2023 Intertwined
Taryn Walker + Shannan Jackwitz
A remarkably powerful exhibition combining ceramics and fibre, two of the oldest technologies that continue to hold an intrinsic position in all our lives today. Both are profound metaphors for understanding ourselves, the universe, and how we as humans are woven into its delicate fibres. Intertwined is a visual representation of who we are, and where we sit together in this ever-evolving art installation we call life. The exhibition continues until 5th April, then the space will be dedicated to workshops as the community is invited to contribute to the hero installation in workshops until the end of May.
June 2023 Birds of a Feather
Benny Bin Chicken and his feathered friends are gathering at The Write Gallery for an exciting exhibition of the inspiration behind Benny’s curious character and other birdlife we encounter in our lives. The curious, the fascinating, the personalities of these significantly symbolic creatures is captured in a variety of art media to enhance our appreciation of the bird culture.

September October 2023 The Secret Life of Seedpods by Chelsea Baker
A stunning showcase of nature embellished with the gentle sensitivity of the artist, the Queen of Seedpods, Chelsea Baker. "I aim to uncover the unseen and disregarded treasures in nature that are often overlooked in daily life. My work serves to advocate that there is hidden beauty in nature that can come from unusual and forgotten places." This exhibition will not be easily forgotten!
November 2023 Mr Chippa
Mr Chippa The Woodblock Caver of Bagru is a children’s picture book created from hand carved woodblocks and handprinted using traditional print practices.
