Everglades Avenue 37, Leura, NSW, 2780, Australia
11th November 2017
Celebrate the simplicity, subtlety and emptiness of ``white’’ when the richly designed and furnished Everglades Historic House and Gardens, Leura, holds a luminous twilight soiree to launch the White Exhibition on November 11. Featuring three Blue Mountains artists (James Gordon, Julie Martin and Helen Sturgess), exhibition curator and art consultant Louise Abbott of iArt has based the exhibition around the White book by famed Japanese designer and curator Kenya Hara. In his book Designing Design, Hara elaborates on the importance of ``emptiness’’ in the visual and philosophical traditions of Japan and its application to design. ``In summary, `white’ symbolises simplicity and subtlety,’’ Abbott said. Launched with a White soiree, the exhibition will be held in the magnificent 1930s art deco Everglades House set amid spectacular gardens, formal terraces and overlooking sweeping views of the Jamison Valley. Dressed in white, guests will be served a selection of canapes and locally-produced drinks sponsored by Dryridge Estate, while floral arrangements will be provided by Floral Ink and musical duo Rachel Hannan and John Stuart will set the tone with smooth grooves. All the artworks will be white-themed.
