Opening of Sally Blake's exhibition 'The Ancient Gaze'
Belconnen Arts Centre, 14 February 2020, 6pm
A Chorus of Women has been invited to sing at the opening of this exhibition. The title of the exhibition refers to the central image – The Ancient One – a drawing of the Venus of Dolni Vestonice, a 30,000 year old figurine, considered to be a representation of the Mother Goddess. The art works focus around the themes of lament and renewal, regeneration and transformation, which are very aligned with our mission.
Like us, Sally shows a connection between ancient wisdom and today's issues. Included in her exhibition is a striking image of Greta Thunberg, the Swedish girl who intitiated the global School Strike for Climate movement.
