In 2006 a group of Hunter Valley abstract artists participated in the exhibition Pandora’s Box at the Newcastle Art Space. The exhibition was well received and thereafter the group continued to gain critical acclaim.
The Pandora Group agreed to show their recent work at the Moree Plains Gallery. Artists include Sally Bourke, painter; Helen Dunkerly, who works with large-scale ceramic pieces; Annemarie Murland, who will show works on paper; Linda Swinfield, who will produce carved and collaged printed imagery; Lezlie Tilley, who will show delicate works of shell grit and small stones in grids on paper; and Patricia Wilson-Adams, who will exhibit a free-standing sculptural piece of cast aluminium and powder coated forms.
