Alcaston Gallery is delighted to present the sixth solo exhibition of Naomi Hobson, whose exciting art practice has seen her become one of Alcaston Gallery’s most sought after artists. Continually pushing the boundaries of her painting style, Hobson's work contains a growing confidence and maturity as a contemporary painter. 

Naomi Hobson is a finalist in the 2017 Sunshine Coast Art Prize to be held at the Caloundra Regional Gallery, Queensland. In 2016 Naomi Hobson won The Alice Prize - Australia's National Prize for Contemporary Art. She was a finalist in the prestigious Geelong Contemporary Art Prize 2016, and the 33rd National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award. 

The artist's work is held in the National Gallery of Australia, Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory, Araluen Art Collection, Artbank and notable corporate and private collections.

The Extractive Frontier: Mining for Art at Castlemaine Art Museum

18-Mar-2017 - 09-May-2017
AK20611_Email.jpg

Colonial history can be viewed as a series of frontier encounters based around extractive economies. How are these economies – social, commercial, creative and political – reflected in art? This exhibition of new and existing works explores both the artistic heritage and contemporary manifestations of the act of ‘digging’ in former and current mining towns. What is found and what is lost in the process of excavation? Taking mining as a metaphor, the artists represented in this exhibition (from places as geographically and culturally diverse across Australia and beyond as Yirrkala, Northern Territory, Castlemaine, Victoria, and New Guinea) explore multiple themes implicit in the act of mineral exploration and exploitation: scarring, layering, excavating, prospecting, exchange, power, custody, resources, home, land, destruction and renewal. 

The Extractive Frontier: Mining for Art is staged over three sites: Castlemaine Art Museum, Lot 19 and Castlemaine Market Building. 

Castlemaine Art Museum days and hours of opening can be viewed here

Full program can be viewed on the Castlemaine State Festival website
