2016 GLENCORE CHILDREN’S EXHIBITION 26 AUGUST - 23 OCTOBER 2016 PERC TUCKER REGIONAL GALLERY


Metamorphosis: the art of Tom Moore

Metamorphosis is the 2016 Glencore Children’s Exhibition, and focuses on the stunning hybrid life-forms of leading Australian glass artist Tom Moore. Moore’s menagerie of characters combine botanical, zoological, and mechanical elements. Drawing inspiration from “the sharp observational wit of literary absurdists such as Edward Lear and… Dr Seuss”, the works are simultaneously humorous and insightful, giving us great joy, while also providing pause for thought about the human impact on the natural world. Exhibition Dates 26 August – 23 October 2016
