Quirky: from the collection

Luke Roberts 'Close encounters II: Gold Lake Oregon USA 2000,' 2002 offset lithograph, 14/60 45.1 x 65.2cm presented in 2005 by the artist through the Australia Government's Cultural Gifts Program Newcastle Art Gallery collection
12 December 2009 - 31 January 2010

We celebrate the bizarre, the outlandish and the strikingly unconventional in this exhibition including major names in Australian art such as Sean Cordeiro and Claire Healy, Gareth Sansom, McLean Edwards, Hany Armanious, Mikala Dwyer and Juan Davila. The curatorial focus for this collection-based exhibition is how artists explore unconventional materials and ideas to make engaging and often humorous work.
