Until January 30, the Cowra Regional Art Gallery is presenting the exhibition Adrienne Doig: It’s all about me!

In this exceptional and enjoyable exhibition Blue Mountains based artist Adrienne Doig presents layered responses to universal themes that have social, environmental and political narratives.

By manipulating, reworking and combining imagery from multiple sources, Doig records her own experiences within a larger context.

Pushing the boundaries of the genre of self-portraiture, her various explorations also highlight the utilisation of different media including embroidery, quilting, appliqué, collage, sculpture and installation to express the evolution of her ideas.

The Gallery is located at 77 Darling Street, Cowra, hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10am to 4pm and Sunday 2pm to 4pm.

The Gallery will be open from 12pm to 4pm on Wednesday, January 26.
