In August 2011 I commenced a six month arts residency exploring the museum collection and local history of the City of Wanneroo, on the northern outskirts of the Perth.
Three years later, I've been invited to return to mount a major exhibition in the City's wonderful large Gallery space. I have invited six other artists to join me, both from within the City of Wanneroo and from further afield. We will all share stories of people and places important to us, with over 100 works on display in a variety of media including painting, cyanotype, jewellery, digital print and textiles.
After two busy months of finalising arrangements as exhibition curator and administrator, as well as finishing my own artworks (well, I admit, I'm still stitching and printing!) the show is about to be installed. I am very excited by the wonderful work being shared by Angie Beck, Pam Annesley, Marjorie Colemen, Michele Eastwood, Elizabeth McCaig and Karen McClurkin.
TELLING STORIES of People and Place opens on Friday 1st August at
6pm, at the Gallery, Wanneroo Library and Cultural Centre, cnr Dundebar
Rd and Rocca Way, Wanneroo. If you live close enough, I'd love to see
you at the opening. The exhibition is only on for just over a week, from Saturday August 2 to Sunday August 10. Gallery hours are 10am - 4pm Tuesday to Friday and 12noon - 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Please note that the gallery is closed on Mondays.
