Having seen the work in person, the ladies of hml can say that you should promise to all get along to see Anna Davern's show Nukk at Seventh Gallery. The combination of sculptural objects and jewllery pieces is really generous and interesting. The above work actually appears in a shadow box - like a secret community huddle. Congrats Ms Davern!
Also open this week is new work by Sophie Knezic. A Pocket Full of Stones is on at the Area Contemporary Art Space Inc (rear level 1/230 brunswick street enter via St David Street). This is Knezic's MFA work and after her amazing Washi exhibition at Craft Victoria a few years ago we are intrigued to see what direction her work has taken. Plus we've never been to this space and you know how we love an obscure art venue!
Those of you in the Brunswick area might see us loitering at the group show Trace featuring printmaking, textile design, drawing and mixed media by four qld artists (Anne Smith, Haya Cohen,Virginia Miller, and Sonia G Peters). We love seeing work of interstaters and Counihan Gallery is one of the best city council galleries in Australia.
Doesnt it feel like the year has finally begun?
