Due to extended closures of the Strathfield Library & Innovation Hub throughout 2021, the exhibition schedule has been directly impacted, The exhibitions scheduled for 2021 are now rescheduled to 2022.

The Ironbark Gallery will not be asking artists to submit applications for exhibiting in 2022 as our program is already completed. We are planning to call-out in mid 2022 for artists interested in submitting an application to be considered for exhibition in 2023.

The Ironbark Gallery is a dedicated gallery, located in the Strathfield Library & Innovation hub; available for both emerging and established artists based in the following local government areas which includes; Burwood, Canada Bay, Canterbury Bankstown, Inner West Council and Strathfield.

Ironbark Gallery is managed by Strathfield Council and provides artists the opportunity to exhibit in a professionally supported gallery.  There is no fee to exhibit in Ironbark Gallery.  Strathfield Council supports this space and provides a Curator to oversee all aspects of the exhibition process.  Artists are also given the opportunity to sell their works and facilitate a workshop in conjunction with their exhibition.

A call out for applications is made annually. All applicants are evaluated by a selection committee and based on the written application and supporting material provided.

Elementals: Stefanie Ferguson

Elementals explores the intersection of drawing and ceramics in Stefanie Ferguson’s artistic practice; ranging from mark making – drawing – and texture – ceramics. These drawings are an investigation of line, texture and colour of living organisms and natural formations.

This exhibition showcases and highlights Stefanie’s artistic process of research and experimenting with works on paper and the transition that occurs when working in two-dimensional form to finalised three-dimensional ceramic works that are symbolic of the human condition.
