Ian Thomas is a Sydney based artist who has staged 20 solo exhibitions and been included in numerous group shows in Sydney, Melbourne and London over his twenty year career.
His exhibition ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ is an ode to the joy and resilience that binds us under the moonlit sky and honours the power of love and the solidarity that emerges from shared experiences.
Highlighting often overlooked narratives, his textile and mixed media works reference the transformative energy and boundless creativity of the Northern Rivers queer communities and acknowledge the fearlessness of queer elders who paved the way.
The exhibition also contains documents and images relating to Tropical Fruits and the wider queer history of the Northern Rivers from the archives of local community historian, Ian ‘Teacosy’ Gray.
Put on some sparkle and come along to our Opening Celebration | 7-9pm | Friday 16 Feb
