This spring the Gallery is pleased to present SIXTY: The Journal of Australian Ceramics 60th Anniversary 1962–2022.

This is a touring exhibition presented by Australian Design Centre in partnership with The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA), to acknowledge this significant anniversary for the ceramics community in Australia.

This major exhibition will showcase the work of twenty-two acclaimed ceramic artists from across Australia, including Gippsland’s own Owen Rye, and other previous exhibitors such as Tania Rollond, Vipoo Srivilasa and Pippin Drysdale.

For sixty continuous years a print publication, The Journal of Australian Ceramics (The JAC) has documented ceramics in Australia, in 176 issues and close to 20,000 pages. The JAC has unified the thousands of artists in this community, as well as their generosity in passing on skills and knowledge to fellow artists and for the next generation of makers. It is because of the many that have been involved over the years that The JAC has been such a success.

The ceramic artists selected for this exhibition represent their contemporary peers and those who came before them throughout the history of Australian ceramics. All have a strong and enduring connection to The JAC.

The exhibiting artists are: Glenn Barkley, Kirsten Coelho, Greg Daly, Pippin Drysdale, Dan Elborne, Penny Evans, Honor Freeman, Susan Frost, Shannon Garson, Patsy Hely, Alison Milyika Carroll, Jeffery Mincham, Damon Moon, David Ray, Ben Richardson, Tania Rollond, Owen Rye, Jane Sawyer, Yul Scarf, Vipoo Srivilasa, Kenji Uranishi and Gerry Wedd.

This celebratory exhibition is guest curated by Anna Grigson and ADC’s Lisa Cahill with design by Studio Garbett.
