ADRIFT Exhibition Opens at Gang Gang Gallery
All set. Ready for next week.
JILLIAN CULEY, CAROLYN DANCE, KAYLENE BROOKS and MICHIYO MIWA
Adrift is a collaborative exhibition focused on the amazing array of twisted, burnt, dented, discoloured and gnarled wood that gets washed onto the shores every day. Every piece has its own personality, and has been shaped by its journey through storms, currents, tides and bushfires.

The Sad bits and the funny bits become jumbled, and there can be no higher praise.” – John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald.
Daley’s playing has been described as “exquisite”, – John Shand SMH, and his composition for large ensemble, Sanctuary, drew the following response……
