A Common Thread is a multidisciplinary collaboration between Harriet McKay and Sam Gold, encompassing painting, installation and sculpture. The work is about connection – the connection to a material and in turn how that connects us as human beings. This exhibition seeks to explore how time and space inform the artist’s behavior with matter and lament the almost ritualistic process of repetitive acts during the creation process. Transference is a collaborative exhibition by artists Robyn Campbell (ACT) and Jo Victoria (NSW), who exchanged knowledge about glass and porcelain through a process of learning, teaching, experimentation and play. L he exhibition expresses the artists’ shared fascination with light and surface, and the potential of glass and porcelain to convey fragility and the ephemeral. craftact.org.au.
