On 17 July Devonport Regional Gallery will launch Something New, Something Blue: New and Earlier Works from the Permanent Collection. Curated by Ellie Ray and Emily Kennel, the exhibition showcases recent acquisitions alongside a series of previously acquired works from the Devonport City Council (DCC) collection.

This exhibition marries new works with earlier pieces from the collection’s history, effectively borrowing a shared thematic interest in ‘the blues’. An examination of the psychological effects of the colour blue threads this exhibition together as the included works circle changing landscapes, aural dimensions, and flirt with the macabre.

Curators Ellie Ray and Emily Kennel will be conducting a Twilight Tour on Thursday 13 August at 5:30 pm.

Education and Public Programs will be conducted throughout the exhibition. For further details on education and programming please contact Dianne Sheehan, Public Programs Officer on 6424 8296.
