LWAG Welcome Back

Thursday 5 August, 5pm-7pm


The new semester brings new exhibitions to LWAG!

We’re keeping the gallery doors open late on Thursday 5 August – come stop in to enjoy complimentary drinks and nibbles alongside a special tour of the latest exhibitions with UWA Art Collection Curator Sally Quin.

Don’t miss the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look into the new exhibitions and to find out what’s coming up this semester at LWAG.


Currently showing to 27 November:

Feeling abstract?
Paintings from the UWA Art Collection, 1950–1990

Feeling abstract? explores abstract painting over a forty year period through works in the UWA Art Collection.

The exhibition features key examples of Australian abstraction of the 20th century and is a unique opportunity to view dynamic, large-scale paintings from the Collection, several of which have been included in major national exhibitions but have not been on public display at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery for several decades.

Curated by Sally Quin, Curator, UWA Art Collection.


Works from the Cruthers Collection of Women's Art

Featuring works of grit, weight and significance, Matter focuses on materials and materiality.

The exhibition brings together paintings by Lisa Wolfgramm, Carol Rudyard, Susan Norrie, Amanda Davies and Julie Dowling; ceramics by Joan Campbell, the Hermannsburg Potters Group and Toni Warburton; textiles by Eveline Kotai and Rhonda and Susannah Hamlyn; installation works by Michele Nikou and Sarah Goffman and more.

Curated by Lee Kinsella, Curator, Cruthers Collection of Women's Art.
