Between Landscapes, Anne Numont
8 August – 9 September 2019
A selection of finely detailed drawings on paper by artist, Anne Numont, who explores concepts around themes of landscape & liminality. Anne says
My art practice reminds me of my relationship with nature and the physical world, the impact of the environment on humans and vice versa. So as a transient space, inTransit suits these works because the landscapes I draw, some of particular places, can be seen as archetypal, universal or a 'non-place' They reflect a current human experience of combined realities yet offer disruption to our frenetic existence by providing stillness to contemplate it.
Anne Numont is a local artist who draws, makes paper, plus installations. A finalist in the North Sydney Art Prize (2013, 2015, 2017, 2019) she was selected for the Council-curated ‘RED PROJECT’ exhibition in 2018. Anne currently practices in Council’s Primrose Park Artist Studio Program and her work is held in our Local Studies Art Collection.

2 July - 7 August 2019
Represented by Maruku Arts which is Anangu owned and proud, artists and knowledge keepers have created artworks and wood objects that tell stories of place, language and ceremony. Starting on the lands and rippling out to the nation, these works will share their stories with the North Sydney community while on display in the inTransit Art Space.
This project was made possible through a partnership between Maruku Arts, Monte Sant’ Angelo Mercy College, the 2019 Gai-mariagal Festival and North Sydney Council.

un-Contained: An exhibition of fibre art by Lissa-Jane de Sailles
30 May - 1 July 2019
This exhibition explores the use of traditional weft twining techniques in the construction of two dimensional circular sculptural forms. ‘un-Contained’ is a colourful and playful experiment in colour, texture and the use of traditional basketry techniques. Most of the works are inspired by natural phenomena encountered during a six week basketry study tour of the USA in 2017. The title ‘Uncontained’ plays with the notion of using basketry techniques for making objects other than traditional utilitarian containers.
LIGHT WAVES: An exhibition of photography by Primrose Park Photography
25 April- 27 May 2019
Light waves can be identified by their properties of reflection, refraction, and dispersion. Using analogue and digital technology, each photographer in this exhibition explores their interpretations of this theme, inspired by the capture of water and light.
