IN CONVERSATION: PRUE VENABLES WITH NEVILLE FRENCH
Join ceramic artist Prue Venables as she discusses her work and art practice with her friend and fellow ceramic artist Neville French. Prue Venables, who is based near Castlemaine, delights in the relationships that develop between objects “as they stand together like elements of musical harmony. From the shadows that form between them to the implied movements across spaces, they dance”.
Venables works exclusively in black and white. Her work, Black oval vessel and spoon 2014–15, which won the Clunes Ceramic Award 2015 is included in the exhibition Monochrome.
Free but bookings essential

WORKSHOP: MESSAGE UP YOUR APRON
Aprons are one of the ultimate symbols of the 1950s domestic goddess, and while they have retro appeal, they come with baggage. Join craftivists Sharon McDonough and Jem Olsen with artist Kait James to work with you to devise, design and execute ways to adapt or update your apron to make it an expression of your own identity and stance on identity, gender politics and social justice issues. The workshop will start with a tour of the exhibition Hang us out to dry with artist Kait James.
Tickets: Adult $60, Gallery Members $48, includes vintage apron. Tickets on sale soon
