Marilou Chagnaud is a French artist and textile designer who has recently moved to Canberra. She mainly works with fiber materials, printing and folding, navigating between the disciplines of visual art and design. Meet her at Namadgi National Park during AiR Open day on Saturday 29 April.

Curious Tales - A journey through form
Solo exhibition by mid-career, Canberran furniture maker Peter Bollington which looks to engage the user/viewer through function, colour, shape and form. The range will be primarily crafted from solid timber with accents of colour and various materials. The body of work will be a continuation of the multifunctional pieces previously visited, along with further complimentary pieces to the range.

Artist-in-Residence: arts, heritage and the environment 10 Year anniversary celebration

Artist-in-Residence: arts, heritage and the environment 10 Year anniversary celebration
The annual artist-in-residence program supports a local, national and international artist to each undertake a residence at Gudgenby Ready-Cut Cottage in the Namadgi National Park, and a two week research component within a national cultural institution in Canberra. The program facilitates access for the artist to national cultural, tertiary and research institutions and their collections, curators and researchers. A group exhibition of new work by each of the artists is held annually, and a catalogue produced about the program and disseminated internationally. Presented in partnership with ACT Parks and Conservation Service and The National Arboretum Canberra. Supported by artsACT through their initiative, Arts Residencies ACT
