Sydney artists Ken Irvine-Brown and Carolyn Doherty are exhibiting artworks at the Balmain Watch House in Balmain from 19-21 October.
Part of the proceeds will go to the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation. Pancreatic Cancer is a cancer that is too often overlooked, despite it being a major cause of cancer deaths in Australia.
Ken’s assemblages, made from discarded piano part are based on pop songs. Recycling piano material into songs mostly from the 60s and 70s celebrates music and sustainability in all its forms.
As well as the assemblages, Ken’s superb drawings on rice paper were inspired by a trip to Shanghai reflecting the old and the new side by side in this vibrant city.
Carolyn has taken local landscapes and abstracted them celebrating the gorgeous colours in Sydney Sandstone. The amazing forms and rich colours in Sydney sandstone show the brilliance of nature.
The exhibition will be open Saturday and Sunday in the historic Watch House at Balmain.
