The countdown to the opening of Sirens of Gunnedah in Lane Cove has started.
The explosive exhibition, featuring Gunnedah women in a new light, will hang in the art gallery of the town’s sister city from July 29 until August 22.
The photographers behind the project, Two Cats Creative’s Marie Low and Alyssa Barwick, will travel to Lane Cove for the opening and are “pleased and grateful” that the labour of love will be shared with city-siders.
“We are both very excited about the exhibition going to Lane Cove. We are so humbled by the support and the warmth we have received for this project, which started out as a dream and has escalated into a juggernaut for us,” the pair said.
“It wouldn’t have happened without the help of our Sirens Squad, especially Addicted to Hair and our make-up artists.”
The photographers will host a live online launch of the exhibition in the gallery at 6pm on Wednesday, July 29.
“Some of the photographs featured in the exhibition will be different to those in the Gunnedah exhibition, and there will be two additional sirens,” they said.
“It can be a costly business having an exhibition, and we could not have gone ahead without a sister cities grant from Gunnedah Shire Council and further support from Lane Cove Council.
“We urge whoever can make it to take a look at this slice of Gunnedah in the heart of Lane Cove.”
