TRE360 is a much-anticipated major solo exhibition by acclaimed local mosaic artist Kylie Bourne, inspired by her home’s rambling gardens and studio nestled on the banks of the Dogwood Creek. Exploring the diverse and exquisite beauty of trees, the exhibition touches on many of nature’s themes; from the colours through the seasons; flowers and fruit; as well as the many creatures that inhabit the region. A skilled mosaicist, Bourne expresses her ‘tree-mania’ on a grand scale; creating mosaics and installations from glass, tile, mirror, precious tit-bits, enamel, and natural and repurposed elements. Complementing Bourne’s exhibition are the amazing natural tree stump sculptures of artist and friend Mark Duncan.

Bits and Bobs is a small collection of recent photographs from Sophie Bourne. The works explore a diverse mix of subjects, from animals, people, places, spaces, and nature. In typical teenage style; when Sophie isn’t Snapchatting, she is photo snapping on her phone or camera, capturing little bits that bob up around her in the moment.

A pioneer in the new visual arts genre of abstract sequential art, Dr Kym Tabulo’s new body of work Abstract Comics #4 combines the conventions of fine art with traditional comics. With a focus on form and technique, this multidimensional exhibition explores the passage of time through rhythmic narratives rather than telling a story, offering the chance for the audience to invent their own story or find a theme. Using the process of sequence and movement across a variety of subject matter, media and styles, this hypnotic series invites you to reimagine conventional artforms in this emerging 21st century genre.
