Close At Hand

Sat 2 March - Sun 28 April

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Close At Hand brings together a group of artists spanning multiple and diverse disciplines, but who are united by their approach of working by hand. For these artists it is essential to be in touch with the language of materials that they work with and the tools that they extend themselves through. This is an exhibition not just of finished objects, but also of the artists’ inspirations, process and techniques, tools and sketches to explore the slow, careful and deliberate attention – time taken to produce each work.

Close At Hand is curated by Mimi Kind(jeweller) and Elia Bosshard(artist) whose work will feature in the exhibition alongside fellow artists:
Gemma Brown (ceramics)
Bryden Williams (artist and picture framer)
Riley Concannon (jeweller)
Kenny Son (object designer/maker)

WAYOUT Artspace is assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its principal arts investment and advisory body.
