Friday, 11 November 2016 @ 6.00 pm | Canberra Glassworks | 11 Wentworth Ave, Kingston
OPENING EVENT Friday, 11 November 2016 at 6.00 pm. Part of the Inner South Arts Hub Art After Dark 2016 Program.
Artist Joanna Bone and her father spent many hours of her English childhood buying and collecting exotic seashells, and many more hours imagining the exotic environments from which they hailed. This subconsciously fostered a fascination for pattern and intricacy in natural objects which was reinvigorated when she moved to Queensland.
Inspired by found objects including sea grasses, sand dollars and other marine creatures, Joanna Bone has revisited her childhood love of pattern and repetition in this new body of extraordinary glass works. The sense of depth and layers within the surface of these pieces engages viewers and invites intimate observation and quiet contemplation.
Opening hours: Wed – Sun, 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
