Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened September 14 in 1983. Thirty years later an exhibition featuring the work of 29 designer makers and artists will open that does not look to the past, but to the future. The title of the exhibition is NEXT. This is something all involved ponder, not only the very nature of the objects they design and make, but possible new directions for their practice and indeed their lives.
The Retter-Mitchell collaboration has always sought to explore new ground, bridging unfamiliar territory. And this Exhibition moves both artists well out front of the cozy and assured commercial success of their previous work.
2pm Sunday 24 September 2017 Octagon ArtSpace, Bungendore Wood Works Gallery
Exhibition continues until 10 December 2017
Painter/Printmaker Pamela Griffith and Sculptor/Carver Silvio Apponyi cover common ground with their inspiring works that invite you to share their love and concern for nature, flora, and fauna and the delicate position wild life holds in a world obsessed with profit, the world which often involves the exploitation of precious environments.
While both artists work in very different mediums they share a concern for nature and the limited resource we call Earth. They are also extremely gifted and know their craft well due to their many years working as professional artists.
