city clayworkers gallery exhibition1 285x96 Visit ICONS2 at City Clayworkers Gallery Pyrmont Art LoversVisit the “ICONS2″ exhibition by Sheila Myers and Janette Loughrey at City Clayworkers Gallery Co-op in Glebe, just a short stroll from Pyrmont Village. Enjoy a glass of wine and meet the artists at the opening on Saturday, 15 November from 2:00pm – 5:00pm. The exhibition runs until Sunday, 23 November.

Both Janette Loughrey and Sheila Myers are long standing members of this well known co-operative, which has been in Glebe for very many years.

Janette’s pieces are personal, she is depicting Icons as having important meaning for the various stages of her artistic career. Handbuilding of large forms satisfies hergreatly,and the decoration is an added challenge, and this has worked wonderfully.

Another avenue she explores constantly is “Raku” firing, an” instant” firing technique which gives an immediate result, can be wonderful,good, or indifferent, but always has an excitement about it.

Janette’s major body of work, however, must be her highly decorative domestic ware. We all know her by these pieces, they are very typically Her, and tremendously popular too.

Sheila has opted to concentrate on Australian Icons. Certainly not personal, and not having any philosophy about ceramics, she just enjoys the hands-on bit. All those items dear to the Australian psyche are on display, from barbecue to blowfly, white ants and thongs. She has added printmaking to her pieces, not incorporated, but for the sheer joy of a bit of lino cutting.

Janette and Sheila have often worked together for exhibitions. As Clayworkers’ members they have opportunities to present these shows when and as they wish. There is a lot to be said for belonging to a co-operative.
