Now showing

Down the Drain by Emma Winkler

Open weekdays, 8.30am – 5pm

Emma Winkler's Down the Drain exhibition presents a personal exploration of the subject of anxiety and the questions and responses it evokes, through complex paintings and hand-painted animations. Rather than shying away from negative emotions and increasing one's dread, Down the Drain explores the way accepting fear and embracing failure can be an antidote to anxiety.

Down the Drain will be on display in the Civic Gallery until Friday 14 June, with all artworks available for purchase.
