Exhibition - Austral Mingei ​by ​Rowley Drysdale

3 Jul 2024

Austral Mingei by Rowley Drysdale is open 28 June - 21 July.

The concept of ‘Mingei’, long associated with North Asian ceramics, can be partly summarized as ‘the beauty of handmade art for everyday use’. It was developed by Yanagi Soetsu who employed evocative haunting phrases such as ‘the beauty of sadness’ and ‘the art of unconscious intelligence’. ​ Drysdale feels an affinity for Mingei’s celebration of traditional methods, natural materials, country, and as Yanagi states ‘the other power’.

Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10am -3pm. The gallery is at 11 Maple St, Cooroy.
