'Natures Forces' is the December exhibition at The Point Gallery and Craft at Greenwell Point.
It is a display of two local artists who have honed their craft into one synchronous exhibition of pyrograhpy, ceramics and art for the garden.
The featured artists for December are Di Pirotta and Clair Bruton, where Di is a member of the Shoalhaven Art Society and on the Point Gallery Committee and Clair is a member of Shoalhaven Potters and the Nowra Spinners and Weavers.
For Di, the pieces for this exhibition are a personal journey into her own heritage, mapping her Aboriginal ancestry through her great, great grandmother with an extremely detailed pyrographic image of Ration Hill near Sofala (NSW).
Di has recently completed four years at Nowra TAFE with Aboriginal Culture and Visual Arts studies, resulting in her stunning possum pelt cloak creation, depicting the battle between Windradyne and the Aboriginal people against the first white settlers in the Bathurst region.
Clair's inspiration for this exhibition has been her recent attendance at wood fired pottery workshops at Mystery Bay where international ceramics artists built an eight metre long Japanese style anagama kiln for a six day wood firing, and another at Hampton near Lithgow.
The exhibition is open Friday through to Monday each week in December, excepting Christmas Day and the Boxing Day holiday, 10am-4pm.
Entry to the exhibition is free, and the gallery is located at 76B Greenwell Point Road, Greenwell Point.
