Down in the dumps by Glenn Sloggett and Sporting Country by Jane Brown are two complimentary shows, Glenn working with suburban ironies and oddities that only a truly quirky eye can deliver. Both are shooting film however Jane leaves the city altogether and with only black and white film loaded into her camera. Jane's images are those of rural Australian sporting places and the typical Australian-ness of those places. The moment I saw the small scale prints I knew immediately I was looking at superb hand made, wet bench prints on fibre based paper; and they literally sing! If you are part of the younger set shooting film for the first time I cannot recommend seeing this show and these prints enough. Stunning images and printed by Jane herself. Rumour is there will be a large group show to close out the space so keep your eyes and ears open for that. in the mean time, check out this show!
