Laree Payne is delighted to present Leaning into the Shine, a solo exhibition of new works by Sarah Smuts-Kennedy which were made in the spring and early summer of 2021 through until this August. Leaning into the Shine sees works in soft pastel on heavy cotton rag which ebb, flow, jostle and vibrate both on the wall and into the surrounding gallery space.

Please join us to celebrate the opening, all welcome.
