Opening "First Thursday" May 6

Re-cognition brings together conversational pieces that stimulate familiar memories of people we have met, and people we know well.  This group exhibition at The Cape Gallery aims to identify the individual within communities, both urban and rural, and examine the various ways we express our identities, be it national identity, cultural identity, regional identity, or personal identity.

How do we seek to be recognised?
