Dreams of another place | Todd Fuller
For ten years, Sydney based Todd Fuller has been crafting hand-drawn animations exploring themes of love, loss, place, community, and difference. These award winning works are narrative based and are derived from Fuller’s experiences with a range of communities, sites, and histories.
'Dreams of another place' presents the story of 'Little Star', a dog who dreamed of going into space as well as other materials relating to Fuller’s animation practice.

Due to the current NSW Public Health Order we have had to close Rusten House Art Centre during our exhibition of 'Dreams of another place' by Todd Fuller. After collaborating with the artist we are able to share with you an animation from his collection as well as an activity pack designed by the artist to give everyone something to do in lockdown.

The Exploration of Space | Paul Martin
A series of paintings based on actual exploration of space in both oil and water colour media. Martin intends for these works to inspire the youth and generate interest in STEM studies. He considers Art to be an important addition to STEM subjects as he states ‘Art brings inspiration, visual observation skills, drawing, crafting, creating, writing and performing skills and lays the ground work on how we want our society to be. So STEAM is an idea that is inclusive of these five disciplines.’
