Latrobe Regional Gallery July 2021
Update on the Latrobe Regional Performing Arts series or activities.
Our current Winter Program invites you to get curious. Our world is changing fast and to really understand it we might have to pause, notice and ponder what this place is all about - galleries are a great place to do that.
Bec Cole, Director Creative Arts at Latrobe City Council
Be sure to join us for the opening celebration event on Friday 16 July at 6pm. We have planned something special to welcome you and the artists to LRG and also have some exciting LRG Live events. It's always our pleasure to see you at LRG.
Director Creative Arts
Tricky Walsh's artworks metaphorically explore these realms and ask what other models of the universe and possible realms can be imagined or proposed
Walsh's work asks us to consider other possible models, other possible realms in which our world could be seen and made. The artist is interested in mathematics and science, particularly contemporary science that contemplates ideas such as the fourth dimension. Hope to see you joining us Tricky Walsh's art work from 15 May to 1 August.
Our new home
Lauren Murphy's work encompasses a broad range of work from commercial and wedding photography through to journalism and personal projects
This exhibition is a project by photographer Lauren Murphy, auspiced by Latrobe Community Health Service. The show features photographs of refugee and migrant women in Gippsland in their domestic or familial environment. The aim is that the exhibition serves as a reminder to pause and consider another's life journey, as no two experiences are the same. Come join us from 15 May to 1 August.
