Current Exhibition

Two Sculptors: A Retrospective

Council’s Roxy Gallery is hosting an exhibition of form, shape and three dimensions with the June exhibition dedicated to sculpture.

Two Sculptors: A Retrospective is an exhibition by now local artist Denis Hopking and long-time local Michael Brooke.

Denis Hopking was born in Zambia and Michael Brooke was born in England. Both artists have travelled the world and somehow found their place in Kyogle Country!

Denis Hopking’s Sharmanic Elders

Denis has been teaching and living in the Northern Rivers for many years and through his arts practice he has produced an extensive body of works concentrating on sculpture.

Over the course of a lifetime, Denis has been exploring and finding form out of stone, marble, metal Hebel and wood with mallet and chisel on the one hand and building shapes with clay on the other.

He uses fire to harden his clay sculptures and applies chemically reactive bronze patinas which brings a different complexity to this exhibition.

Denis is holding workshops later in the year and if you are interested you can leave your contact details at the gallery. He also undertakes masterclasses in throwing on the potters wheel at the Blue Knob Hall Pottery Studio.

Michael Brooke’s Mother and Child Study

Joining Denis in this exhibition is local artesian Michael Brook whose body of work comprises of Hebel and limestone sculptures.

In his art, Michael aligns himself to the principles of Dadaism, contemplating the definition of art whilst experimenting with the laws of chance.

His sculptures are shapes that nature likes to use to make the world.

Denis and Michael, through their art, have formed a friendship and it is exciting to have an exhibition that focuses on the sculptured form at Council’s Roxy Gallery.

As well as enjoying the current exhibition, visitors to the gallery now can take some time to enjoy looking over our lovely township  from the gallery verandah.

The newly refurbished verandah is now open and has seating where people can relax and take in the view.

Don’t forget the Roxy Gallery is NOW open Sunday from 10am to 2pm and  Wednesday to Saturday from 10am to 3pm.

Two Sculptors: A Retrospective will be on exhibit until the end of June with works in this exhibition for sale.
