Join us for hump day drinks and a panel discussion with exhibiting artist Catherine Rogers, Emeritus Professor Denise Ferris and Associate Professor Martyn Jolly.

Catherine Rogers has been a practicing photographic artist for over 40 years. She holds a PhD in Communications and Media from the University of Western Sydney, was a long-standing Technical Assistant in the photographic labs at Sydney College of the Arts, has lectured in photography in a number of Australian Universities and is widely published, exhibited and collected. Rogers’s work has, at different times, embraced silver-based and digital media, lensed cameras, pinhole cameras and images made without cameras. She has constantly explored the limits of photography, and is fascinated by the mediation of technology within these processes.

Denise Ferris was Head of the School of Art & Design between 2013 – 2021, where she lectured in photography since 1987. Ferris is a photographer who uses UV processes and inkjet technologies, exploring the photograph as a non-documentary a-historical archive.

Martyn Jolly is an Honorary Associate Professor at the Australian National University School of Art and Design. He is an artist and a writer. As an artist he has participated in several major curated exhibitions and developed solo exhibitions which creatively re-use archival photographs.

Panel discussion followed by a live performance from Flick! Canberra based singer/songwriter, Flick, combines featherlight fingerpicking with lucid and comforting vocals in a new and washed-out project that is brimming with vulnerability.

Spend your Wednesday evening with us and enjoy the stunning photographic works of Catherine Rogers after hours!

Happy Hour between 5-6pm

No registration required
