Rachel Grose: Silver garden & Catherine Ratcliffe: The Narmbool Run

Rachel Grose: Silver garden
Ballarat silversmith Rachel Grose has created a collection of silver jewellery featuring foraged little pieces of nature. Succulents, leaves, flowers, berries, nuts and seeds have been cast in silver and framed to create wearable one-of-a-kind botanical structures.

Catherine Ratcliffe: The Narmbool Run
Artist Catherine Ratcliffe has drawn from a residency at a farm on the former Narmbool pastoral run to reflect on the impact of white settlement on the lives of the indigenous Wadawurrung people and on the environment, and how we live with the consequences of decisions made in the past.

11 October 2019, 6 for 6.30 pm
Guest speaker: Kiri Smart
Music: Mick Trembath
