The very first exhibition in this new space is Home: Reframing Craft and Domesticity, curated by Claire Watson. The exhibition is divided into 'rooms' where the works, both from the Banyule Art Collection and from a variety of artists have been selected. It includes work from woodworkers, ceramicists, embroiderers, jewellers and all sorts of contemporary art relating to the theme of Craft and Domesticity.
There is a program surrounding the exhibition with workshops, talks, to try and involve the whole community in the opening of the new space. For more information you can visit www.banyule.vic.gov.au/arts
I have been lucky enough to have some of my work selected for the exhibition, three of my little empty nests sit in the 'lounge room'.
It's a jam packed exhibition and well worth visiting. Hope to see you there!
