New exhibition reveals insights into Georges River’s diverse communities

08/05/2018

A new photographic exhibition capturing residents of the St George region undertaking their favourite activities will open at Hurstville Museum & Gallery on 19 May.

Produced in collaboration with students from TAFE NSW St George College of Fine Arts, St George on a Sunday showcases a number of photographic styles, such as classic portraiture, abstract compositions, studio and in situ set-ups and photo series.

The show provides unique insights into the passions and interests of Georges River’s diverse communities as prior to taking photographs students interviewed their subjects to discover the stories under their lens. 

Visitors can expect to see activities such as fishing around the La Perouse area and cycling through Oatley Park, as well as community groups such as Hurstville Community Garden Association, Peaky Striders walking group, and dancers from the Mortdale Scottish Country Dance Club.

TAFE NSW Relieving General Manager, Paul Williams, said that the project was a fantastic opportunity for students at TAFE NSW St George to get hands-on experience with photography and working with the community.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Hurstville Museum & Gallery. The students have produced wonderful pieces of public artwork for this exciting photographic exhibition.”

“I encourage everyone to visit the Hurstville Museum & Gallery,” he added.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Saturday 19 May to Sunday 29 July, with the official opening to take place at 2.30pm on Sunday 27 May.
