2023 Umbrella Members' Exhibition

Sarah Treadwell, Interconnected (detail of sculpture), 2023, Found object assemblage of sculpture from wire, plastic and metal, and assemblage journal of collaged metal, plastic and paper, 90 x 70 x 70cm (sculpture) and 19 x 12 x 40cm (journal); entry in Time and Space: 2023 Umbrella Members' Exhibition.

Umbrella's artist members have the opportunity each year to capture the zeitgeist and exhibit a work in the annual members' exhibition. This year's theme encouraged artists to examine 'time' and 'space' and to creatively respond with work that captures these individual or collective concepts. The theme also invites concepts or critiques of polarity, relativity or any other interpretation of the phrase. The exhibition will again feature prominent prizes including a $500 Light Through a Lens Photomedia Prize (sponsored by Garrick's Camera House) and the $1,000 Members' Art Prize.
