A new exhibition will run May 26 through June 17 at the Space 204 gallery on the second floor of the E. Bronson Ingram Studio Art Center, 25th Avenue South and Garland on the Vanderbilt campus.

Art from the Antipodes showcases works on paper from 11 renowned artists from Australia and New Zealand, on loan from the collection of Wayne Roland Brown and Marilyn Murphy.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The gallery is closed on holidays and weekends.  All Space 204 exhibitions are free and open to the public.

Art from the Antipodes features a diversity of approaches toward creating an image, from Elizabeth Cumming’s richly colored expressionistic landscapes inspired by her memories of southern Queensland, to the immaculately drawn realism of Sydney artist Michael Kempson. New Zealander Reg Mombassa, an artist, musician and designer for Mambo Graphics, is represented by several whimsically edgy prints and pastel drawings.  The intricate designs of three senior Aboriginal artists from the Papunya Tjupi Arts movement in the Western Desert region of Central Australia will also be included, as well as the elegant abstractions of John Coburn.
