TAR: Come over to the dark side…

Exhibition @ Black Diamond Gallery, Port Adelaide, South Australia

22 February – 10th March 2013

A group of contemporary artists bring you TAR – be it tar of shipyard, rope and sails, of night, of roads and pitch, sealing or preserving, medicinal or harmful. This exhibition celebrates the dark, resinous, aromatic, binding, bitumous and symbolic nature of tar. Curated by Tony Kearney.

TAR is the third in a series of contemporary mixed media exhibitions curated by Tony Kearney, the previous two being RUST and SALT. Tony brings together established and emerging artists from disparate disciplines to celebrate elemental themes. Glass, ceramics, contemporary jewellery, photography, painting, drawing, installation, sculpture; all these work together to explore and respond to the theme of TAR.

Brenda L. Croft, Bruce Nuske, Christine Cholewa, Danica Gacesa McLean, Deb Jones, Emily Taylor, Emma Johnson, Grant Hancock, Hailey Lane, Kate Cullity, Kirsten Coelho, Jaqueline Barmentloo, Nici Cumpston, Peter Johnson, Sandra Elms, Tom Moore, Tony Kearney, Trevor Wren.
