The Artist and Her Work

Lady Sheila Cruthers took an immediate shine to women’s self-portraiture when she began collecting art in the mid-1970s.

  • Dates:May 25 - Dec 7
  • Venue:Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

Details

  • Hosted By:UWA
  • Produced By:UWA: University of Western Australia
  • Type:Art Exhibitions
  • Audience:Adults,Wheelchair Access
  • Event Venue:Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery
  • Visual Arts:Other Visual Arts

Description

This interest expanded into a collection strategy she referred to as ‘the artist and her work’ – Lady Cruthers would collect an artist’s work in addition to a self-portrait, with the two works often hung side by side in the family home. Now housed at the University of Western Australia, the Cruthers Collection of Women’s Art holds over 100 self-portraits, many collected as a result of this strategy.

The Artist and Her Work utilises this unusual juxtaposition to showcase the breadth and depth of women’s art practice, replicating the dense and vibrant hanging style of the collection’s original domestic context.

Pairs of works will be exchanged throughout the exhibition period to create a dynamic collection showcase that will reward repeated viewing.

Description

Each year an emerging curator is appointed to produce an exhibition of contemporary works by Western Australian artists. The series has so far explored the expanding field of sculptural practice, new photography, artists with an Islamic heritage, contemporary ceramics and the legacy of Marcel Duchamp.

Curated by Joanna Sulkowski, HERE&NOW19 surveys the practice of artists working with fibre and textiles to express ideas relating to current social and political issues. The exhibition challenges our perception of craft as a repetitive activity of making things by hand and offers a new perspective on the processes and materials-driven practice of a group of dynamic contemporary artists. HERE&NOW19 showcases their use of traditional, contemporary and experimental techniques.

Jack Point, the jester, is in love with Elsie Maynard but she is drawn to the Errol Flynn-type swashbuckler, Colonel Fairfax. 

Meanwhile the disgusting gaoler, Wilfred Shadbolt, tries his luck with the young and impressionable Phoebe, but she too is in love with Fairfax.

Conspiracies abound along with a false escape and plots gone wrong.

The production is directed by Michael Brett who is already well known as a musical director.  The musical direction sees Georg Corall in his third appearance in this role for the Gilbert & Sullivan Society performing Sullivan’s most magnificent musical score. 

All of this is with orchestra and colourful period dress.

This is a treat not to be missed.

Description

‘‘Memory takes a lot of poetic license. It omits some details; others are exaggerated according to the emotional value of the articles it touches, for memory is seated predominantly in the heart…’’ -T. Williams

The sinuous recollections of Tom Wingfield are witnessed in this interpretation. 

He is the narrator of the play. 

He is a poet. 

His family’s reality is destroying his dreams. 

Amanda Wingfield is Tom’s deserted mother. Left to raise their son and daughter. 

Her memories operate in juxtaposition to the realities of her life. 

Laura Wingfield, Tom’s sister, also chooses to escape her ‘physically’ compromised world. 

The characters in this play are a menagerie, kept in captivity for exhibition.

They are a family made sinewy.

They have been stretched to the point of snapping, trying to stay connected. 

Tom’s retelling of his experiences are like fibrous tissues that he pitifully joins as justification. 

We step back with Tom, into his memory and witness what he recalls, from his earlier life.

This is a poignant, powerful and relevant play about a splintering family. 

An amateur production by arrangement with Origin™ Theatrical, on behalf of Samuel French, Ltd

Description

Tennessee Williams’ most powerful and haunting play, The Glass Menagerie, is being staged at UWA’s Dolphin Theatre this October.

Presented by the Graduate Dramatic Society and directed by Jane Hille, the classic American drama is a stirring portrait of a family that struggles with the past, future – and each other.

Amanda Wingfield desperately struggles to provide her fragile daughter with at least one “gentleman caller” while her son Tom dreams of escaping his job at a warehouse and oppressive life at home. 

The semi-autobiographical play is filtered through Tom’s memory, reflecting on the glories of times past with echoes of loneliness, fragility and innocent hope.

The Glass Menagerie was Williams’ first successful play, catapulting him to the forefront of American theatre with other works such as A Streetcar Named Desire and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

“Fragments of Tom’s experiences are pieced together as a justification for his actions,” Jane said.

“We step back into Tom’s memories and witness them being re-lived as he recalls his earlier life.

“The characters in the play are a menagerie and, not unlike the fragility of glass, they fracture and splinter from life’s wounds.

“It’s a poignant and powerful production of a shattering family.

“The main challenge is creating characters that both honour the text and relate to a contemporary audience, so getting the character of Amanda Wingfield right is paramount.”

Involved in theatre since she was a child, Jane is a drama educator, scriptwriter and director and is currently the artistic director of Fenceline Theatre Company at Swan Christian College.

She has written and directed numerous productions including 1914 Our Story About Love and its sequel 1915 Under The Surface for Kojonup’s Anzac centenary commemorations, The Pied Piper of Middle Swan and The Chook House for The Blue Room Theatre’s 2019 Summer Nights season.

Jane’s show Anyman was named best theatre production at Fringe World in 2018 and the cast of The Book of Everything – a Fenceline Theatre Company show – was awarded WA Emerging Artist in 2019.

“Tennessee Williams captures the complexity of human nature in The Glass Menagerie,” Jane said.

“It speaks on many levels about the disillusionment of life, its struggles against adversity and the fight we each have for our own survival.

“Memory and experience are intriguing devices to work with in theatre.”

The Glass Menagerie plays at 7.30pm October 16, 17, 18 and 19 with a 2pm matinee October 19. Tickets are $35, $25 concession – book at www.ticketswa.com/event/glass-menagerie.

Dolphin Theatre is located at the University of WA, 35 Stirling Highway, Crawley.

Musical heroes have given the LGBTQ community the confidence to say who they are and the strength to be who they are.

In 2019, they pay tribute to the remarkable people who have been their inspiration: from David Bowie to Pink, from Leonard Bernstein to Adele, and many more.

This is the favourite time of the year when they come together as a community and celebrate what connects society – a love and respect for each other, all to beautiful four-part harmony.

This is the Gay And Lesbian Singers of Western Australia.
