Emily Gallagher Solo Exhibition

August 2 @ 7:00 pm - August 15 @ 2:00 pm

“Fake antiquities, false hope (devices for translating ancient feelings I don’t understand)”
A new exhibition opening August 2 by artist Emily Gallagher

Emily Gallagher uses sculpture and multi media to allow viewers to follow her artistic journey as she navigates many unanswered questions.

“Messing up the rites of passage, objects and rituals for initiation maybe I have to create my own fictional solidarity
uncover, decode
tangible evidence
surely there was someone from all of ancient history that felt how I do?”

“I think I’m hoping for a kind of pathos exchange between the viewers, the physicality of the work and fragments of myself reflected in the work. Maybe it moves around between all of these in every combination, back and forth and some of it remains, absorbed in each object/being?”

Joining Emily on opening night are fuzzy psychedelic rock trio bands Heavy Amber and Neon Goblin!

Doors at 7pm
Bands from 8:30
$15 entry fee to support local musicians

This event is sponsored by our friends and supporters of the arts, @Bodriggy Brewing company. The exhibition will be open 3pm – 8pm every day until August 15.

The Old Bar Gallery acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the land on which The Old Bar resides. The gallery pays its respect to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledges that sovereignty has never been ceded.
