PRECIOUS HABITATS

Threatened ecosystems and species of the ACT and surrounds

Art exhibition at The Link Exhibition space in Ginninderry that runs from 8 December  to 17 January 2021.

Official opening:

Sunday 13th December 2020 2pm

The opening will include an interactive ephemeral art workshop by Madeleine Tranter, a speech by Sho Rapley (spoken word performance art) and a poem read by Robin Davidson.

This is a community exhibition by local artists who are all passionate about their love of our local biodiversity.

As the curator, my aim of the exhibition is to share the love of our natural environment via art to our community. To encourage more people to care and feel joy and connection to the precious ecosystems and species that are still here.


Precious Habitats includes a variety of mediums and materials: sculptures in steel, bronze, clay and wax. 2D work of paintings, drawings, embroidery prints and photographs. Poems, written and spoken words.

Artists: Adam Fromholtz, Amanda Parker, Anne Hodgett, Belinda Wilson, Bonnie Koopmans, Carol Cooke, Philip Snellen, Catherine Ross, Ceilidh Dalton, Cheryl Hodges, Christine Pearson, Emily Birks Towler, Fenja T. Ringl, Joan McKay, Julian Teh, Madeleine Tranter, Matilda Banks, Michelle White, Naomi Taylor Royds, Paul Dumetz, Rachael Robb, Robin Davidson, Robyn Banks, Ronia Ecclestone, Rosalie Burns, Sho Rapley and Zali Odlum

SERVICES

Sales

Unique items, limited editions or making multiples

Many of my items are one-off but I also make moulds of my more challenging sculptures and make limited numbered editions of 42. Some of my pieces (such as the bee) I have outsourced the mould and do runs of around 100 before reworking a master.

Custom Made

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Custom made jewellery. If you have an idea, I'd love to help make it a reality. I mainly work in sculpting wax and then casting in a variety of metals.

Workshops and classes

Safe and fun for all ages and abilities

Private or groups of up to six and inclusive of those with special needs. I can come to you or meet in one of Canberra's beautiful parks. We work in a soft non-toxic wax to create a master that is then sent away to be cast in a metal of your choice. Suitable for birthday parties, special occasions or just an everyday creative experience.
