Gate Door Lintel focuses on the notion of gateways, doors and lintels made by a group of invited artists, sculptors, craftspeople and architects. The choice of such a diversity of backgrounds of the people involved was to encourage a variety of responses within the show as it explored such a familiar yet significant item of our lives, and indeed, cultures.
Some of the people involved include Chris Booth, Bronwynne Cornish, Don Driver, Diana Firth, Dick Frizzell, Graham Lane, Para Matchitt, Jeff Thomson and Warren Viscoe. The exhibition will be utilising all of the gallery spaces including the outside Sculpture Court. It will turn the Gallery into a veritable maze of artworks produced especially for the show.
