Audrey Boyle currently practices in Auckland working in installation/sculpture and printmaking, working intuitively with found objects. Kerri-Ann Abbott works in porcelain to achieve the fragility and translucency required to create patterns and textures found in textile crafts.
is a Craft Victoria residency program, exhibition and publication. The process is as important as the result. Makers from eight Commonwealth countries have been selected as representatives of a craft particular to their culture. They will arrive in Melbourne and meet a local ‘welcome’ artist who introduces them to current practice. Works from visiting and local artists go on display at the Melbourne Museum from 6 February. Then visitors spend the month of February in residence producing a work of art especially for the Games. These works then join the initial pieces for an opening at Melbourne Museum on 28 February. Through Common Goods, many different cultures coming to Victoria will find a way to work together.
There is a blog for the February residency
Thank you bugheart for the info on the Baltimore craft council show – some great craft artists exhibited – I particularly loved Lynn Whipple and her mixed media art, and Jacqueline Sanchez and her puzzle jewellery.
