Sonder | Exhibition Opening


Sonder, curated by Carclew’s 2023 Curator in Residence Lia Karabatsos, explores the profound realisation that every person experiences an internal world that is just as rich, deep, and complex as one’s own. Local painters Millie Hopton and Ruby Udys uncover the invisible, internal moments that animate us through a range of their most compelling works. Artworks will be available for purchase.

Join us for opening night! Explore the artworks and hear from the artist themselves, while enjoying some delightful conversation, around some great food and drinks!


Carclew House, Kaurna Country, 11 Jeffcott St, North Adelaide SA 5006


Tuesday 28 March at 5:30PM

Exhibition continues until Monday 22 May.
