White Heat - Contemporary Australian ceramic jewellery
Whether hand building, slip casting or wheel throwing, ceramics is a messy business. With its tactile quality and seductive nature, clay offers endless possibilities in the creation of objects. White Heat curators Zara Collins and Helen Johnson have brought together an eclectic blend of established and emerging artists, ensuring a diverse response to the notion of 'ceramic wearables'.

Prospect - Antonia Aitken
A Craft ACT Member solo exhibition, Prospect explores the environmental impact of mining combined with the personal sense of loss the artist felt while exploring the site of Queenstown in Tasmania. These emotionally arresting installation works incorporate wood, printmaking, and multi-media to question our affect on the environment and our relationship to the land.

Crucible showcase: Curiosities - Jemima Parker
Curiosities is a collection of hand-printed three-dimensional textile objects that can be placed on the body as adornments, or viewed in a gallery setting as objects in their own right. The exhibition combines artist Jemima Parker's drawing practice with textile processes to explore the blurred boundaries between fashion and art.
