update for January 2012 

12th January: Craft Vic, window, GoldenInk [link]; “Katherine Wheeler works in an organic and spontaneous fashion; she is fascinated by the correlation between object and memory. Abby Seymour approaches her work in a more planned manner, and her focus on decoration is inspired by portraiture and adornment. Together, through Golden Ink, the pair have committed themselves to creating finely-detailed, one-off pieces, and already we are seeing that their work is becoming widely sought after.“; until 29th February

18th January: Studio 20/17, Julia Middleton ‘Adaptations of Objet Trouve‘ [link]; “Indelibly sculptural, Middleton’s pieces are crafted from her direct environment. The NSW bush offers up a multitude of organics to be fused with metals and abandoned industrial miscellania. The pieces represent the marriage of installation art, found art, appropriation art and of course…contemporary jewellery.; until 4th February

20th January: opening night for Lord Coconut, ‘BEARS, BOOMERANGS, BATHERS & BOOZE – KITSCH AUSTRALIANA‘ [link]; “Mulga wood ashtrays, shell houses, souvenir spoons, tea towels or a southern cross tattoo. We all have (or had) a secret collection of these fabulous, or not so fabulous, souvenirs of our travels throughout Australia. Lord Coconut is celebrating Australia Day 2012 with his own take on Kitsch Australiana with this exhibition. Local jewellers, designers and artisans were challenged to create jewellery or a display piece which represents their own view of kitsch Australiana.“; until 11th February

7th February: Studio 20/17, new work by Anna Davern [link]; “Gold and Steel are materials that are intrinsically tied to stories of our culture and how we define ourselves. Our cultural myths abound with references to gold and steel: Our egalitarian heritage that can be tied back to the Gold Rush and it’s opportunities for all, and the steel of Ned Kelly’s armour which represents our distrust of authority. The landscape from which these materials originate, is a defining element of our identity, from the iron-oxide red of the centre to the golden sands of its edges.“; artist talk on 18th February; until 21st February
