From:Saturday 13 July 2024
To:Sunday 21 July 2024
Time:12:00am -  Saturday 13 July 2024
Location:Crows Nest Gallery, New England Highway and William Street, Crows Nest, Queensland 4350 Australia

FREE ADMISSION | GALLERY OPEN: Wednesday to Sunday 10.30am – 3.30pm | Closed Monday, Tuesday & Public Holidays

Toowoomba-based artists, Ute Braatz, Sian Carlyon and Jess Millicent, explore different contemporary printmaking techniques and their reflections on what makes our existences worth living.

The exhibition title is based on the historical artistic trope of ‘memento mori’ (remember that you will die) – that life is fleeting – and so we should ‘carpe diem’ (seize the day)! Reinterpreting a long-standing historical artistic practice dating from Roman times through to contemporary ‘still life’, provides opportunities for commentary on social mores. Death is almost a friendly spectre on the periphery, but it is the ultimate social leveller.

This exhibition celebrates different perspectives about our short lives through the lenses of humour, love and social commentary.

Join us for a Meet the Artists event on Sunday 30 June 2024 from 11am - 1pm.
This is a great opportunity to meet local printmakers, Sian Carlyon and Jess Millicent, and learn more about their artistic practice.

Free event | All welcome | No bookings required.

Exhibition on display 26 June – 21 July 2024.
