A Space for Softness
Opening event

Solo exhibition by ceramist Kelly Austin, supported by The Australia Council for the Arts and ArtsACT. Austin’s work challenges our perception of seemingly familiar ceramic objects. She is interested in abstracting utilitarian forms, working with ambiguity and referencing still life paintings such as the work of Giorgio Morandi and Jude Rae. During the development of this work, Kelly will undertake a mentorship with Kirsten Coelho, one of Australia’s top ceramics practitioners.

Presented by Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre as part of Women in Design.

Opening words by Mary Featherston, influential designer and design educator.

Gallery hours | Tuesday – Friday 10am – 5pm; Saturday 12 – 4pm
