10 August to 28 October
Gallery Three, Artspace Mackay
Sydney born figurative painter Clara Adolphs spent time in the region in 2017, participating in Artspace Mackay’s vibrant new Artist in Residence Program. Her culminating exhibition Familiar Distance is a collection of paintings examining Mackay’s past and present. Adolphs concentrated on using observations and records of moments in time from Mackay. Exploring old photographs, newspaper clippings and making personal observations she ‘attempted to create an image of Mackay over time’ a collection of everyday happenings that formed part of our town’s history and social fabric
