Coming soon

Girlhood is a celebration of all women. Two artists - Lily Hogan and Jamie Parmaxidis - come together to observe how women ahve played a critical role in their own personal upbringing, exploring the complex environment in which 'girls can be girls'. 

This takes form in youthful abstractions and photographic portraits representing a playful take on the representation of gender roles.

Exhibition opening: Saturday 9 March 2019, 2.00pm

All welcome, drinks & nibbles provided. RSVP online.

The photographs in Home sweet home were taken at a time when the Georges River area was developing and estates were being subdivided into smaller lots. Homes varied from large sprawling villas or mansions with extensive grounds and gardens, to smaller cottages and bungalows. Selected photographs from the Georges River Council Local Studies collection depict the architectural variety and diversity of people's lives during this time from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.
