First Impressions: The Valley of Skies

2nd - 24th November

Jan Manton Art

Jan Manton Art is pleased to announce upcoming exhibition First Impressions: The Valley of Skies,  a group exhibition of Brisbane based artist Keith Burt, Aaron Butt, Michelle Gilbert, Jane James, Dylan Jones, Kate McKay, Carl Warner, Lee Wilkes.

The artists participating in ‘First Impressions: The Valley of Skies’ are united by exhibiting with Jan Manton Art Gallery.Through this mutual professional connection, other creative relationships have emerged. These associations have enabled this new group exhibition.

Conceived and curated by Lee Wilkes in conjunction with Jan Manton, the exhibition invites the artists to respond to a unique site in Cannon Creek, southeast of Boonah. The property, deep within Queensland’s Scenic Rim, boasts some of Australia’s most magnificent scenery.

‘First Impressions: The Valley of Skies’ explores the possibilities of a site both fixed and in a cycle of change. This combines with the interests, materials and processes that each individual artist brings to it. Each work represents a moment of interest in something seen for the first time, which is captured and shared. These works generate new dialogue and experiences for those observing them.
