SYDNEY CITY: An exhibition of contemporary artwork capturing the battlefields of the Western Front from a century ago and reinterpreting the significance these places have in our nation’s culture and history is now on display at Sydney’s Anzac Memorial.
Clever ceramics rendered by 3D printers, thought-provoking artworks, strikingly colourful glasswork and exquisite furniture – these are just some of the superb collection visitors will discover when they visit Artisans in the Gardens at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney this month.
Artist Melissa Carey has long loved drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture. As a 12 year old she had her first jewellery stall. An art school graduate in hometown Perth, she worked for a while in the corporate sector but soon realised the office environment was not a healthy space for her. Three years ago she moved to Sydney where she has established her own creative business. From her share-space studio in Alexandria, Melissa conducts workshops in candle-making, printing and macrame. She enjoys festival work and volunteer work within the arts scene, as well as commissions large and small. Next month she hopes to complete an art residency in Berlin.
