Late Sunday Afternoon Poetry

TWO MONGOLIAN JOURNEYS

Our next exciting exhibition is about:  TWO MONGOLIAN JOURNEYS

Screen Shot 2013-09-27 at 6.18.35 PMScreen Shot 2013-10-04 at 8.19.05 AM

This exhibition will showcase the PAINTING, PHOTOGRAPHY, TEXTILES & ARTEFACTS produced and collected from our two journeys to Mongolia in 2010 and 2012.

In 2010 we travelled with our Australian friends Marion and Peter to Mongolia to be with our Mongolian artist friend Tugsoo Sodnom. Tugsoo had come to Australia a few years earlier and travelled with us to paint in the Flinders Ranges. This resulted in the first exhibition DESERT SHARING held at Montsalvat Barn Gallery in 2005. We have continued the journey with travelling to the Central Mongolia landscape at Khorhorin, the North East to the Siberian Forest and later in 2012 South to the Gobi Desert with Tugsoo and her son Unench.

We camped in GERS along the way and made many small paintings and much photography and film which will be part of this exhibition. We will also be exhibiting some of the work Tugsoo made in the Australian Flinders Ranges.

Durning our 2010 visit we were invited to return and exhibit in the History Museum in Ullaanbaatar; being the first Australians to exhibit in the Museum. This was part of our reason for returning in 2012; and to travel to the Gobi to fulfil our DESERT SHARING with Tugsoo.

The exhibition opens Sunday 10 November @ 2.00pm and continues through until the end of the year.

The exhibition will be open Thursday – Saturday 10.00 – 5.30, Sunday 10.00 – 5.00
