Last chance to see the shows by TANMAYA BINGHAM and WARATAH LAHY before they and the Gallery close for the year at 5pm on Saturday 24 December.

Tanmaya Bingham's meticulously rendered mixed media drawings feature the portraits of friends and associates. Often mistaken for photographs, the realistic portraits fuse fantastical elements drawn from around New Mexico where this series was conceived and produced.

The works from Not What it Seems, by Waratah Lahy, are based on a series of old, found photographs and continue the artist's fascination with what others find interesting enough to photograph. The palette was derived from the colour distortion that occurred to the photographs over time and the works show scenes ranging from fields dotted with cows to a church, simple domestic interiors and people at the racetrack.

Congratulations are also in order for Waratah who has been awarded a residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.

Please be aware that Gallery will be closed from 5pm December 24, reopening Wednesday, January 18 with Sculpture 2012.
