We celebrate the bizarre, the outlandish and the strikingly unconventional in this exhibition including major names in Australian art such as Sean Cordeiro and Claire Healy, Gareth Sansom, McLean Edwards, Hany Armanious, Mikala Dwyer and Juan Davila. The curatorial focus for this collection-based exhibition is how artists explore unconventional materials and ideas to make engaging and often humorous work.
6.00 - 7.00pm Tuesday 10 November
As part of the WEA Art Appreciation series, artist-in-residence at the lock up Kate Rohde will discuss her work.

Quirky Tactile Gallery
Are you frustrated that works of art can't be touched in the Gallery? The Quirky Tactile Gallery invites you to handle objects made by artists on display in the exhibition. Great for families and kids-at-heart, the Quirky Tactile Gallery is available to the public as part of the Gallery's weekly Artcart activities, and in the school holiday workshops.
Every day, Gallery floor attendants will choose a favourite work of art from the Quirky Tactile Gallery, and have this work with them to share with visitors. For those wishing to see the full Quirky Tactile Gallery, group bookings can be made by contacting Public Programs Officer Penelope Finnigan on 02 4974 5112.
