A new exhibition titled By The River by Jenni Vecca has opened at Box Gallery, Manning and will be on display to the community until 26 July 2022.

Jenni Vacca is a West Australian ceramic artist whose work is deeply informed by local landscapes. She is fascinated by the recurrence of certain patterns that emerge from widely disparate processes in nature. Her creative practice is a way of participating in the temporal processes of growth and decay.

In this exhibition, inspiration has been taken from the Canning River landscape, responding to the form and texture of native trees such as the Sheoak, Tea Tree and Paper Bark, and patterns flowing on the rippling water.

This work is composed of relief prints, made by pressing clay directly into a tree trunk. These prints, marked with the tree’s growth pattern, were cut and arranged to create this installation. The clay fragments, and negative spaces between them, make up one larger work which flows across the first nine frames.

Jenni’s work can be viewed at and is available for purchase. Please contact for all enquiries.
