In February I was delighted to receive an email from Danielle Harvey inviting me to exhibit at BCM Crucible Gallery, as part of The Emerging Curator program.
In 2011, artisan formed a partnership with BCM which involves the curation of a number of exhibitions in the Crucible Gallery space within the BCM office to showcase the best of Queensland craft and design artists as part of an Emerging Curator mentorship.
The Emerging Curator program develops the talents of an emerging arts curator under the guidance of the artisan team, and the program was recognised in the 2012 Australia Council's Young and Emerging Artists category of the AbaF Queensland Awards. The artisan/BCM partnership is helping to develop future arts leaders, support Queensland's craft and design community, and also provides exhibition opportunities for Queensland's talented artists.
Danielle has curated 'City and Nature' with a selection of my hand cut paper works, installation and recent paper mache sculpture. City and Nature is on show from 8th April to 18th May 2016.
My sincere thanks to artisan and BCM for supporting this program and exhibition.
