Creative world opens at the Gallery

RENOWNED Northern Tablelands artist David Tucker opens his latest exhibition at Grafton Regional Gallery tonight at 5.30pm.

Tucker, who won the Blake Prize in 2008, builds in clay to create ceramic sculptures and has produced a body of work reflecting the relationship between the red-tailed black cockatoo and the casuarina trees that produce seeds on which it feeds.

This is also the official opening for Cass Samms and Angela Tay's exhibition Microcosm, and Karen Richards' Flora Non Evidens and Operation Art.

Local artist Cass Samms has worked with Angela Tay to develop bodies of work that reflect the concept of Microcosm.

Cass Samms gained her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 1992.

She was chosen to do various commissioned sculptures in the Clarence Valley including Grafton Region Gallery, the Earle Page Library and Education Centre, Grafton, and Turner's Beach, Yamba.

Angela was one of the regional artists selected to respond to Kate Murphy's work.

"Prayers of a mother" at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery in 2014.

Both artists explore their natural world and this is reflected in this exhibition.

Karen Richards' Flora Non Evidens exhibition also flows well with the subject of the environment.
