Exhibition Calendar

2021 is the year for exploration, connection and expansion. Our shows feature local and emerging artist, many of whom have never exhibited at a gallery before. We showcase up and coming talent and provide a space for artists to connect with their audience and have space to display their work to the world.

Our exhibition themes centre around the experience of being human, the impact of humans on the world, and are tailored to fit around our school holiday and educational programming schedule. 

If you have work you would like to exhibit in any of the shows listed below please complete our artist submission form or email connect@senopsis.com.au with your portfolio or proposal.

9 February - 20 March: Saturation Point

Saturation Point is the point of overwhelm, the overstimulation, the brightness of saturation that we experience in contemporary life and pop culture. Think bright colours, bold shapes and windows into the souls of people as they process the overwhelm. 

23 March - 24 April: Sea of Life

Underwater landscapes, the environmental impact of humans on the ocean, an exploration into the depths of a world we may only visit and never truly inhabit. 

27 April - 5 June: Wild Women

This show explores gender expression in a contemporary context. It brings together intersectional feminism with a challenge to stereotyped gender identities and the construction of "womanhood". Our artists explore concepts of gender roles, gender expression, and empowerment. 

15 June - 10 July: Fauna

Native fauna and the relationship between human and animals with a focus on native animals.

 

12 July - 14 August: Landscapes​

The tradition of landscapes is as old as art itself. It stems from our yearning to understand our place in the world, our place of belonging. This show will look at the human interaction with landscape, our sense of place, and location as a space of belonging.

17 August - 9 September: La femme de l'Atlas - Youssef Lamima

Featured solo exhibition by Youssef Lamima. One day, Youssef went to the village his ancestors are originating from in the Atlas Mountains and he felt in love with a Berber girl who was very beautiful. They both developed a lovely love story. Youssef wanted things to get more serious so he asked his dad to accompany him to ask the girl’s hand (ask her for marriage). They were received with a lot of hospitality in the girl’s house but traditionally in this region, girls only marry their cousin. So unfortunately Youssef’s request for marriage was refused. This broke Youssef’s heart and he was affected psychologically. In his artworks, we can clearly see the beautiful girl, at times her dad and the girl and Youssef together. Painting this beautiful girl in a Moroccan context relieves Youssef’s emotional pain.

10 September - 2 October: Class of 2020 - One Year On

5 October - 31 October: Bodies in Motion

Dancing, writhing, growing, forming. Life drawing and portraiture is so often static. Static images of static bodies. Our portrait show flips the traditional portrait exhibition on it's head and makes it do it's own handstand. Bodies in Motion brings together abstracted bodies, moving bodies, kinetic sculptures and more.

1 November - 13 November: Art Swap Exhibition

16 November - 30 November: Youth Expression

OC's, kids art, teen angst. This show is by the Youth for the Youth. Our featured artists are all under 17 years old and are ready to tell you what they think.

Opening night will be on the 20th of November to coincide with International Children's Day.

1 December - 29 December: Artisan Makers Market for Christmas

In the lead up to Christmas, we want to provide a space for all the local artisans to showcase their wares - an extended art and craft market with all the gifts, beautiful things and creations from local makers for you to come and browse. Support local business, support local artists. A unique gifting and shopping experience.
