Laura McKibbon: Impressions de Montreal



Part of an ongoing investigation of city and culture, this new body of work explores the streets, ruelles, and countryside of Quebec – a literal diary of time and place and document of the artists experience. All work had been produced at Gaia studios over the past few weeks, and features collaborative pieces with Catherine Auriol, recent recipient of the Prix France-Quebec.

Opening Thursday August 25, 5pm

Monday morning eye candy – Kevin Stafford

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Kevin at the Matter of Clay III opening earlier in the month and was completely taken by the beauty and subtlety of his work as well as his kind and genuine nature.

Is Ceramics a Viable Option?

Sunday 11 Sep 2011, 10:00AM to 3:00PM Is the studio potter a romantic notion of the past? What does the future hold for ceramics and are we ready to meet these changes?

Join Michael Keighery as he discusses ideas of how the ceramic studio potter might operate in the future. Once referred to as a “techno potter”, Michael Keighery’s witty practice gives ceramics a contemporary spin with the aid of technology, promoting lateral thinking. About the Artist: Michael Keighery’s practice of mixed media, ceramic-based, and performance art, is collected and exhibited world wide. His work has been featured in major contemporary art events including the Second Beijing International in China and the Huntington Gallery Boston USA. In the past five years he has exhibited solo in Sydney (Object Galleries, Mura Clay, SCA and UWS galleries), as well as in Brisbane City Gallery and New England Regional Art Museum.

His work is represented in public collections including the National Gallery of Victoria, Powerhouse Museum, Artbank and the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, as well as regional galleries across Australia.

Michael has had a distinguished career as an arts educator and policy maker most recently as Head of Fine Arts Program UWS from 2003 to 2007, National President (Australia) International Association of Art (IAA), Chair of National Association of the Visual Arts (NAVA). Cost: $20p/person (includes afternoon tea). Limited places available. Phone to book.
