From the Bower: patterns of collecting, with Deborah Klein, Loris Button, Carole Wilson and myself, has travelled to the Art Gallery of Ballarat, opening on Saturday 29th July and running until 17th September 2017. The opening was well attended with a thoughtful and illuminating speech by Jason Smith, Director of the Geelong Art Gallery. The show is beautifully curated by Brenda Wellman and installed over 4 days with her fabulous team (and our assistance). We held a forum on Saturday 12th August with 60 or so people in attendance and I ran my "reclaim, recycle, remake" workshop with 14 participants on the Sunday. The show is being very well received and we are all very happy with the final iteration of our show, which was two years in development before it's first exhibition in March at Warrnambool Art Gallery. Below are a selection of lovely installation photos by Tim Gresham.
