Sunday July 11, 2-4 pm Christine Porter Artist talk

Christine has been a full-time practicing artist since 1990. In that time she’s painted thousands of watercolours, editioned 167 etchings, created her own way of Perspex-boxing artwork and taught more emerging artists than she can count.

She’s traveled Australia’s heartland gaining inspiration about a way of rural life that is on the edge of urban memory. Over the years her painting has become concentrated on stories of the sheep and wool industries, becoming along the way, a specialist of the iconic Australian Shearing Shed.

This talk will have both original artworks from her recently covid-cancelled solo show “The Working Shed”, and slides from previous work. It will be part travelogue, part art show, and depending on the audience, will also include some discussion about her work methods and techniques.

Free event, drinks available by donation

Sunday August 9, 2-4pm Anna Nordstrom Artist talk

Anna will talk about her inquiry into the transformative aspects of her studio process; for both the materials and the artist. As materials are transformed into art objects so too is the artist altered, moving through past traumas or scarred histories, transmuting objects and emotion through acts of movement, intention and the routine of making.

Sunday September 13, 2-4pm R.J. Poole Artist talk

During this artist talk R.J Poole will explain his creative practice via the underlying motivations that drive his signature body of work – the Anima Series. R.J Poole will describe the collaborative relationships he shares with various people and the methods he employs to express him self through others. He intends for this talk to focus on ‘how and why’ he makes art, as opposed to ‘what’ he makes and to have an open exchange with the audience about the art process in general.
