Well I'm off to Canberra for a few days. First up to visit the Gallery of Australian Design where I am curating a show next year (eek). lucky for me they have exhibition about Design in Media, looks quite crafty from here don't you think?
I'm popping into Drill Hall gallery to see a new glass piece by the amazing Wendy Fairclough. There is something so ethereal about glass forms referencing ordinary objects, like ghost of their former selves perhaps...
of course I have to visit Craft ACT. Can't wait to see the shop (which is new since my last visit many moons ago) and the joint exhibition 'Conjunction' between the Debra Boyd-Goggin and Chris Harman.
If I have time I'll also visit Beaver Galleries. This long established space has a terrific history of supporting good craft and design long before it was cool thing to do. It's been about 10 years since I last visited and I'll be curious to see what's changed. I'll also check out the Amanda Shelzer ceramic sculptures.
Of course I'll always end up wandering through the fog sculpture at the NGA sculpture garden. Can't wait to show nearly'two Thom this amazing piece...Then we might go and throw eggs at our old high school. My beloved and I return to where we met 21 years ago! Good Grief. More pics from the road. RAMONA
