ALEX KOSMAS & JANET COKER
Brindabellas and beyond
30 March – 26 May
Strathnairn Arts Woolshed Gallery
Alex Kosmas continues his exploration into the mystery and majesty of the natural work in this new exhibition of bronze and porcelain sculptures alongside printmaker, Janet Coker. Renowned for his striking and ethereal mountainscapes and trees, Kosmas proves once again that he is a true master of the sculptural form through his ability to manipulate bronze, copper and clay to communicate every nuance, from the detailed and delicate to the boldest spectacles of nature.
Official opening: Saturday 30 March at 2pm by eminent sculptor and painter Ron Robertson-Swann OAM.
