For most people the gallery exhibition is the main focus for art; where work is presented for public consumption, where it all comes together in its most ideal form. The place where art is made is unseen, private and if not exactly secret, incidental to its ‘product’. Like the barbecue and the abattoir, you can’t have the show without the studio.
Artists featured include Jan Murray, Mark Galea, Richard Dunn, Sadie Chandler, Helen Maudsley and Dale Hickey.
Exhibition opens: 4–6pm Saturday 13 July 2019
