Pine Street Creative Arts Centre has exhibited a wide array of artists, art forms and subject matter. Below is a selection of past exhibitions:
Offshore and Out of Sight is a ARTillery Sydney’s inaugural exhibition exploring the treatment of refugees and asylum seekers. This mixed media exhibition will showcase works by local artists all inspired by the phrase ‘out of sight and out of mind’. ARTillery is youth volunteer group under Amnesty International Australia that uses art as its artillery to defend human rights.
Chris Hutch, Gavin Poidevin and Suzie Shaw are three high school teachers who work in Glebe and share a love of art-making.
Their show, Between the Trees, is the second time they have exhibited together. The works, which mostly relate to trees and other aspects of the natural world, consist of a mix of styles and media, i.e. paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour; etching and collagraph prints; artist’s books; mixed media memory boxes and weaving………a box of allsorts, something for everyone!
Join the artists at the launch on Saturday 16 November from 1:30pm – 3:30pm
This first ever solo exhibition for the Sydney based artist marks the celebration of a new beginning and a deeper exposure to the art world. The exhibition features paintings, drawings and sculpture taken from a collection of works which represent progression. The works display elements of simplicity in the subject matter and document what is real.
Two zines also form an important part of the show as they are an extension of the artworks which combine image with text.
The artworks will only be on display for one afternoon from 2pm – 5pm on Sunday 10 November 2013.
Drinks with the Artists: Friday 25 October, 6pm – 8:30pm Exhibition Dates: Monday 21 October – Thursday 31 October Opening Hours: Monday – Friday 9:30am – 5:30pm, Saturday 26 October, 12pm – 4pm
Mary Costello is a photographer who has been represented as a Finalist in the 2013 Blake Prize for Religious Art, Mandorla Art Prize, Olive Cotton Portrait Prize, Gosford Art Prize and Fishers Ghost Art Award. Her latest body of work is a series of atmospheric and moody large scale images of the large New Zealand White rabbits who were rescued from a meat farm and found sanctuary at Big Ears Animal Sanctuary in Tasmania.
Ron Pratt investigates the everyday. Fleeting moments captured with toy and plastic cameras. His images draw the audience in to a decisive moment, allowing us to see the beauty of people and objects we encounter. The series “of family… (hole in the soul)” recalls fractured memories of family, relationships that no longer exist, moments that now subsist and instances of time that befall dislocations.
Michelle Tinta’s work represents a juxtaposition of nature and culture; the simplicity of natural and constructed forms using the transformative properties of light to structure and reveal form. Shooting using a large format camera, and the nineteenth century process of collodion wet-plate Michelle’s photographic plates resonate between time and subject, light and shadow. Often employing a cross pollination with digital processes.

Manners are Necessary A Photographic Exhibition by Stuart Garske
Opening Night Launch: Friday 15 March, 6pm – 8pm Runs until 25 March
Gallery Hours: Monday – Friday 9:30am – 5.30pm, Saturday 12pm – 3pm
MAN, Manners Are Necessary, is Stuart Garske’s first solo photographic portraiture exhibition. The theme of masculinity and our gay communities’ fascination with hyper-masculinity, straight-acting and ‘MASC’ was the inspiration for this series. Stuart approached a variety of men though social media apps such as Grndr and Scruff, to sit for a portrait in their own homes and share with you a truthful, relaxed view of themselves. Perhaps even a lesser seen side of their natural masculinity. “Masculinity can be unique. As unique as the men I have photographed.” Stuart Garske www.stuartgarske.com.au

Opening Night: Friday, February 15, 6-8.30pm.
Show Dates: 15-28, February, 2013
“My last exhibition was very dark in tone and highlighted people’s deep insecurities and their need to put up defences,” explains Parry. “Freedom is a much more positive exhibition and has allowed me to highlight people’s confidence and comfort within themselves and in nature. I grew up near the beach and near water. That was when I felt most free. The Freedom exhibition captures the way it feels to be comfortable with myself and with others that are important to me.” www.brentonparry.com

‘One Day You’ll Understand’ Guy James Whitworth
19 – 30 October
Guy James Whitworth latest show is all about aging disgracefully. It is an exploration of the devil may care attitude and lack of concern of what anyone thinks, that growing older can bring. His last exhibition ‘Like Neon Within’ at this gallery last year was a hit with both critics and buyers, with ABC calling him ‘inspiring’ and ‘collectable.’ Whereas last year’s show was made up of unworked life drawing and simple sketches, this latest collection is composed of elaborate paintings, portraits and collages, whilst still using the colours and graphic style he is known for in his sketches.

The work is as varied as the artistic outlook of the individuals. A diverse range of materials and approaches provides an exhibtion of interesting elclecticism. Steel, plastic, timber, bronze contrast and compliment to provide an exhibiton of broad appeal and from the point of view of the artists and their work – a leap into the unknown.

Sam Mallinson – Digital Prints Educated at ANU and UNSW in mathematics, physics and engineering.
Sam’s technique evolved from his use of mathematical transformations to analyse experimental data. He has applied this technique to his own photographs, linocut prints and drawings, physical & digital ephemera and other artists’ works. Impressions are made on Epson Velvet Fine Art and Archival Matte papers using an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 printer.
Staci Crutchfield – Ceramics Has attended numerous short courses in Ceramics around Australia.
Staci’s main interest is in techniques using natural materials to impart colour, as in the Japanese Bizen tradition. Her pieces are hand thrown bowls formed without the use of a wheel fired in sagars packed with concentrated food waste, ash and garden clippings. Clay used is a compound of raku, stoneware and earthenware aged with biodegradable waste added.

History Bearing; A solo exhibition by Rowena Hall
May 2 – 14
Opening Night: Wednesday 2 May, 6pm – 8:30pm
Exhibition to be opened by film critic Peter Castaldi
Hours: Mon - Fri 9:30am – 5:30pm, Sat 11am – 4pm
Rowena Hall’s first solo exhibition, History Bearing, combines the narrative conventions of tableaux with those of staged photographic portraiture. The work is designed to reveal historical stories (850 AD to the 1960s) of women with emphasis on their fertility. This dynamic series of work is timely, readjusting the way the female body has historically been represented by including fertility as part of the norm, as opposed to treating it as something to be excluded.
Bambini without Borders; by Alessandro Perini
Opening 18 May 6pm 17 – 29 May
In 2010 Alessandro travelled to Africa to spend time photographing in an orphanage called the Watoto Wema Centre in Kenya, where he had a chance to live with the children and document some unforgettable and heart-warming moments. Once back in Sydney he decided he wanted to find a material way to help the children and their carers.
He set about building a website and created a way for people to donate directly to them. He also realised he could make a difference by selling his images as prints and in book form. This project now includes his recent visit to the Shanghai Healing Home for orphaned babies suffering cleft palate. This exhibition is designed to assist in creating awareness and an ongoing relationship with impoverished orphanages around the globe.

Artist Statement (Jagath Dheersekara) Muckaty is situated on Warlmanpa country, 120 km north of Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory. Traditional Owners call the area “Manuwangku”. Nomination of their traditional land as a domestic nuclear waste dump site in 2007, coupled with proposals for Australia to “lease” uranium and take back radioactive waste from overseas nuclear power operations, have generated justifiable fear and concern amongst the Aboriginal communities in and around Muckaty (Manuwangku). They have responded to the nomination with ongoing protests to defend their right to live in a clean and safe environment, free of hazardous waste. The photo project “Manuwangku, Under the nuclear cloud” for which I received Amnesty International Human Rights Innovation Fund Grant in 2010, is focused on this community under threat. Living with them and experiencing their socio-cultural life and activism, I attempted to document the spirit, connection to land and the collective voice of this community as they try to resist institutionalised racism manifesting in this instance in a move to convert their traditional lands to a dumping ground for nuclear waste.
From the Curator’s Notes (Sandy Edwards)
Jagath spent time living with the communities documenting ‘their spirit, connection to land, and collective voice’. We are familiar with images of protest and action that have in fact taken place in the community however Jagath chooses to take a different approach. With great sensitivity and a nonintrusive camera (not an easy mode and one which can only be achieved with complete collaboration by those being photographed) he records the daily life of a broad range of community members, men, women and children. The images are disarmingly simple yet leave a strong impression … Muckaty is a small community sitting in a low scrub desert landscape with the predominant colours created by soft red earth, long green grasses and blue cloud scudded skies. By contrast the built environment is striking for its vibrant primary colours in the walls of rooms and on people’s clothing. With a naturalistic eye Jagath records with great subtlety the relationships between family and community members. We see them in kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms as well as in the outdoor environment. Children play pool, women gather plants, make art and watch television, men are shown in relation to women and children. There is much revealed in body language. We experience a poignancy at viewing such normalcy of life knowing that it may well be destroyed for this tribal group.

LIKE NEON WITHIN; Guy James Whitworth
Launch: Wednesday 2nd November at 6:30pm
Exhibition Dates: Wednesday 2nd – Saturday 12th November 2011
Opening Hours: Monday – Friday 9:30am – 5:30pm
Saturday: 12pm – 3pm
This is Guy’s first Sydney exhibition in almost a decade and his first ever made up of life drawings and portraits. ‘What I was really trying to do was capture the inner being whilst using colour and line to describe the outer.’ He says smiling, ‘These aren’t traditional portraits as such but an attempt to try and depict the sitter’s dreams and passions.’ The bright neon colours used in these recent works offer a dramatic contrast to his previous exhibition of mostly black and white paintings which had a far more superficial, fashion magazine feel. The pieces making up this exhibition range from quite small, intimate portraits to large, oversize explosions of colour and form. ABC Sydney said ‘this show is sure to be a hit’ and What’s on Sydney called the show ‘exciting’ and ‘not to be missed.’

Vijaya and her artwork Artist’s Statement
My childhood absorption in art led me to complete a BA (Visual Arts) at the Australian National University where I graduated in 1998. Since then I have pursued art, developing in a range of styles and materials and, when living in Canberra, regularly exhibiting my work in both group and solo exhibitions. This is my first solo exhibition in Sydney following my inclusion in a private exhibition in North Sydney last year. At university and since graduation my output has included dry point etchings in some of which I responded to travels in India and Italy. A number of these were shown in a 2001 exhibition at the Megalo gallery. Other exhibitions also featured Australian and Parisian images in gouache and acrylic. In 2007 I won 2nd Prize at the City Heart art exhibition with a water colour portrait. I took part in a solo exhibition at the Theo Notaras Multicultural Building in 2009 and the Belconnen Community Centre’s Artist Proof group exhibition in the same year. In addition I was invited to submit work to a community exhibition at a Civic venue the following year. Portraiture involving family and friends has been a constant in my art with some of my favourites being detailed pencil drawings. I also paint using acrylic medium, exploiting its potential for colour and immediacy; and more recently I have used oils. For my current exhibition, Inside Outside, I have concentrated on acrylic and water colour painting. My works express my sense of selfhood, my cultural background and my natural surroundings. Some are highly symbolical of experiences and influences, allowing me to express personal and individual responses to life and art in a meaningful way.
Inside Outside expresses ideas, imaginings and feelings in relation to subjects ranging from people close to me, cultural influences, pets, places that include churches and beaches and, of course, nature. Vijaya Sen October 2011

Sydney Diaries: Urban Realities is an exhibition exploring Sydney through the eyes of three Sydney based photographers. With each artist focusing on their own individual personal interpretation and exploration of the city, Sydney is captured in dream like colours and in more classic black and white images.
As all three photographers were born overseas, namely in India, Italy and Indonesia the city of Sydney is captured through the multicultural eyes of the people that call this city home.

Please note: Entries are now closed
The City of Sydney’s Pine Street Creative Arts Centre plans specific events and exhibitions each year which provide opportunities for children to participate in and display their valuable and unique creative expressions to a wider community audience. The showcase children’s event in the Pine Street calendar is the WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY Children’s Art Competition and Exhibition.
Open to entries from children aged 5 – 12 years old, this annual competition and exhibition encourages environmental awareness through the arts, with the aim of educating children and their families to integrate sustainable actions into their everyday lives. World Environment Day is not just about recognizing our environment but also about encouraging people to ‘think and be green’.
2011 COMPETITION THEME
World Environment Day is presented by the United Nations Environment Program.
The theme for 2011 is Forests: Nature At Your Service. Forests provide services that are essential to maintaining our quality of life. Even in urban areas, trees and other vegetation are vital in promoting biodiversity, regulating the effects of climate change, improving water quality, and maintaining soil fertility.
Create an artwork that reflects on this theme – you could even explore the concept of the ‘urban forest’, depicting the biodiversity of the City. You could create an artwork describing a local native species of plant, tree, animal, insect or bird that lives in your backyard or school yard, and how you share this space.
Artworks will be displayed and winners announced at the official exhibition launch on Saturday 4 June, from 1:30pm. Official announcement of winners will take place at 2:00pm. Pine Street Creative Arts Centre, first floor Gallery, 64 Pine St Chippendale. The exhibition will run from 3 – 12 June, Monday to Friday 9:00am – 5:00pm.

Official Launch Tuesday 1 March
6pm – 8.30pm
OPEN: Saturday 5 March, 11am – 4pm
NOT OPEN: Saturday 12 March
I like to keep my art focused on small events, the metamorphosis of insect larvae, the extinction of a seemingly pointless species, or the opening of a can of food. Usually I work on a miniature scale that suits these phenomenon and requires focused attention from the viewer. I favour traditional print media, primarily wood block, lino, and lithography. I also illustrate using watercolour and gouache.
I draw a lot of my inspiration from the Japanese zukushi prints. These prints particularized things as varied as animals, toys, and theatre characters. I’m also greatly inspired by the idea of a cabinet of curiosities. Cabinet of curiosities were kind of personal mini-museums. They contained objects from around the world that were yet to be identified or scientifically catalogued. Among the collected objects there could be fraudulent natural history specimens or true specimens believed to have come from mythical beasts. It is this blend of fact and fiction giving a sense of wonder, that I try to recreate in my work.

Saturdays 11am – 4pm
Emerging Sydney photographer BRENTON PARRY is set to launch his first solo photographic exhibition. Through his photography, the 37-year old Sydney-based graphic designer, blogger, aerial circus student and former lifesaver has created an intensely aesthetic look through a series of powerful images highlighting the deep insecurities people experience when they believe they are not quite good enough.
The exhibition explores Parry’s own personal struggle with being part of Sydney’s gay scene, although he is often perceived to be in the thick of it.
“My life has been one great journey – a chaotic collection of events. But all along this journey
I developed a love for photography, which centres on outer beauty and in particular portraiture photography, which centres on the often more hidden inner beauty. Shrouded has allowed me to bring both together”, says Parry.

Meet the artist – Saturday 6 November 11am – 4pm
In today’s western world, we are moving at an ever increasing pace. We are constantly upgrading our lifestyles and supersizing what we produce, eat, think and feel… disposing of everything that we deem no longer nourishes our mind, body or spirit.
Nick’s new exhibition DISPOSABLE explores the journey of organic objects that have ‘expired’. It highlights the delicate balance between society and the physical world, by recycling unwanted materials and thoughts.
Nick new exhibition hopes to inspire the reuse of the found object and unwanted materials, creating desirable objects that question, confront and reflect the western view of materialism.

Combining his Mexican heritage, architectural background and passion for photography, Roberto Duran is one artist you can rely on for a consistently edgy and unusual approach to photography.
His most recent collection of artworks explores the many interpretations of the Mexican Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos) goddess ‘La Catrina.’ Some see her as ugly, others beautiful and others mysterious, strange and interesting.
Duran has sourced make-up artists, burlesque performers and body painters using their skills to create a collection of images that capture the essence of the festival that is celebrated to honor deceased loved ones. It may sound gloomy or morbid however it’s a very cheerful and colorful holiday.

Pine Street Mural Project
Saturday 27 March 2010 in the Basketball Courts @ Pine Street
Click here to view a film of the workshop
Thanks to funding from the City of Sydney’s Local Action Plans (LAPS), the skills of the workshop facilitators and commitment from a team of volunteers, Pine Street Creative Arts Centre’s old, worn out mural had a major facelift last month. 15 Pine Street students, their friends and relatives gave up an entire Saturday painting three of the four sections of the new mural – a native garden panel, a stencil art panel and a section for Pine Street/smARTarts Youth Festival logos. The fourth, Indigenous themed panel was painted on panels at workshops facilitated by Elizabeth Rooney at Glebe Youth Services. A number of kids and adults took part in the design and painting of these panels, which were then installed on site. The results are stunning! The fact that there has not been a single tag or piece of graffiti added over the last month reflect that quality, community driven murals are respected and tend not be get vandalised.
Comment from a volunteer on the day, as featured in the April CEO Update:
I had a wonderful day working as a volunteer with a group of other artists on the Pine Street Mural workshop. How incredible would it be if every suburb in Sydney had a creative arts centre like Pine Street. It is a truly inspiring and unique artistic network

Reminiscent of Beardsley’s inks, Torrington takes a measure of cult pop-horror and vamps it into a dark collection of special treasures.
Like looking in a long lost dead grandmas jewellery box and finding the bones of small birds, the intellectual warmth and depth of feeling of this show pushes you to question your belief in the closeness of material objects and your own personal distance to others. Our memories are defined by the collections of objects that make up our lives. These objects are so ingrained in the human psyche that they have become symbols of the domestic ideal.
Never before has a visual art opened so wide, such a fragile chasm.
Gallery Hours: Mon – Fri: 9.30am – 6.00pm. Saturday 11.00am – 4.00pm, Sunday: by appointment only, ph: 0409 229 890.

Motel (Inn)Eun-Jong Lee29 July – 30 August 2008 Inn is a space of ‘lodging industry’ and is a public place which offers service to people, who need resting. Also, the space of inn is characteristic of being transformed into private space for staying if people pay a hotel bill. Love motel, which becomes a common lodging facility in South Korea, is associated with the space of appealing to sex rather than the concept of old ‘inn‘. We accept thinking way about a space based on habit and recognition which are formed socially, so that we usually recognize the inn as extramarital space where most men and women have sexual intercourse like TV media and papers rather than the concept of staying and resting. My first experience in an inn was not for sex but for staying of several days in university days of early 1990s in order to prepare for gathering of criticizing and discussing social situation. Space sense, which could not feel in home and university, made me be strange and n ervous, and that I could not fall to get to sleep in the inn because of concern about that someone could open the door of my room remains in my memory.Rooms of the motel still play the role like memory of first love, longing toward people who broke up, laying down exhausting body, hideout for hiding after committing a crime and etc.Multicultural Art Competition and Exhibition18 June – 5 July 2008The Multicultural Art Competition is a City of Sydney initiative to showcase illustrative artworks that tell a story or encapsulates an impression of the City’s diversity and multiculturalism.

A Matryoshka doll or a Russian nested doll (also called a stacking doll or Babushka doll) is a set of dolls of decreasing sizes placed one inside another.Matryoshkas are also used metaphorically, as a design paradigm, known as the ‘matryoshka principle’ or ‘nested doll principle’. It denotes a recognisable relationship of “similar object-within-similar object” that appears in the design of many other natural and man made objects.As a basis and as a starting point for their work, artists will take inspiration from the historical, cultural and metaphorical content of the artefacts, and then develop their Matryoshka sets into personal responses. Artists are encouraged to be creatively innovative, with the only parameters being the doll as canvas.The artists participating are: Catherine Bourne, Nick Pensa, Rehgan de Mather, Christina Chang, Darran McCrann, Victoria Lee, Celeste Potter, Ben Morley, Matt Stanton, Maria-Luisa Marino. The exhibiting artists come from a variety of backgrounds, employ a diverse range of styles, materials and approaches to concepts in their creative work.Curator: Catherine Bourne: 0411 088 853________________________________________________________________________ New Works by Sandro Nocentini20th February until 1st March 2008.Sandro Nocentini’s first solo exhibition in Sydney since being awarded the Sulman Prize in 2005 is going to showcase his most recent works.
