What's on

Murphy Collective

Friday 4 November 2016 to Saturday 10 December 2016

Opening Friday 4 November 6-8pm

Exhibition runs until Saturday 10 December

Q&A with Danny Murphy on Saturday 12 November at 10:30am in the gallery


Down a worn and windy dirt track, lush and green by the Katherine River, Danny Murphy lives in a large yet humble home with an impressive adjacent studio. Once also occupied by mother Ruth Murphy, an avid potter, who passed away in early 2015. Ruth’s spirit lives on through Danny and her presence is strong in the old house with many pots and pieces scattered about.

This retrospective celebrates the pair’s accomplishments, 40+ years of potting together; supporting each other’s distinctive styles from Danny’s earthy terra sigillata seaweed slips to Ruth’s macro crystalline glaze. Many works have generously been loaned from private collections in Katherine and beyond.

Join us to celebrate the opening of this precious exhibition on Friday 4 November from 6-8pm, and the following week on Saturday 12 November we will be hosting a Q&A session with Danny at 10:30am in the gallery.
