John Abery: Do you Remember?

An exhibition of childhood memory 

Opening Event 6 August 2-5pm.

John has constructed his sculptures out of wood, a medium that he loves to work with and he shows great respect for the craft and tradition. It also links to the past of handmade wooden toys that people will remember.

This exhibition is designed to slow down the viewer, to encourage them to look at things that they may have taken for granted.  To look at the world through a child's eye and rediscover wonder.  This is emphasized by The Trinket Box.  

"I have deliberately filled the Trinket Box with objects that may seem monotonous or subjectively boring, however I am approaching these objects through my inner child and perhaps the viewers as well." 

John Abery Gippsland Artist.
