As the title suggests, ‘Debra Porch and Friends’ brings together a group of artists who were protégés or students of Porch at some stage of their and her careers, at the Queensland College of Art or Western Sydney University.
Works on paper, paintings, objects, sculpture and video have been selected and presented by the following 13 artists: Ali Bezer, Sophie Bottomley, Caitlin Franzmann, Chantal Fraser, Tor Maclean, Carol McGregor, Julie-Anne Milinski, Sonya G Peters, Zoe Porter, Leen Rieth, Kat Sawyer, Elizabeth Shaw and Justene Williams.
The exhibition includes two recent text-based pieces by Debra Porch and some earlier 2D works by her not previously shown.
Opening Event: Saturday afternoon, 10 November, 3pm – 6pm
