Elements of Place: Artists in Residence

Featuring textile artist Ceretha Skinner; Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre's first Indigenous Australian artist-in-residence, and Michael Brennand-Wood; the Centre's first International artist-in-residence. Their striking work is in response to living in Canberra's Namadgi National Park, an opportunity provided by program partner ACT Parks and Conservation Service. Though markedly different in thought and approach, through Elements of Place, both artists explore the spiritual richness of place and land through their craftsmanship.

Transplantation: A sense of Place and Culture Twelve contemporary jewellery artists from the UK and Australia

Jewellery offers an art form which provides a means of recording memory and experience in a portable and wearable form. In Transplantation: A sense of Place and Culture it is through this intricate medium, artists based in the UK and Australia have explored their own sense of place and individual cultural identity, as a consequence of their personal and family experiences of transplantation. Each artist has been selected to create up to three pieces of work, each articulating the notion of "transplantation" in a tangible form.
