Tonight we're getting FRESH!

Jewellery by Allona Goren
It’s back again and might we say... it is fresher than ever! Our panel have been getting around like the tarts of Melbourne art. Thirty-five graduate exhibitions in only a few weeks, they certainly have been gallivanting here, there and everywhere to suss out this so called ‘new blood.’  The prowl embodied hunting original ideas, innovative techniques and sincere and developed conceptual thought-processes. Expedition synopsis: successful. After much consideration, twelve new graduates have been selected to show their work at this year’s Fresh! 2011 Exhibition. Chosen artists are Matthew Benjamin, Dan Bowran, Jia Jia Ji Chen, Hannah Chamley, Allona Goren, John Gosper, Elly Hall, Lisa Imai, Wendy Korol, Sophie Moorhouse Morris, Rosina Prestia and Nellie Rogerson. Complete artist profiles and interviews with the successful exhibitors are available here. Works sit within the fields of ceramics, glass, jewellery, gold & silver-smithing, fashion, textiles, industrial and furniture design and visual arts. This eclectically cohesive exhibition will no doubt inspire, as we receive a sneak peek into the future of art, design and craft in Victoria. The peek begins tonight, Thursday 1 December at Craft Victoria, 31 Flinders Lane. Everyone is welcome to join this special evening dedicated to celebrating these twelve dexterous talents and their audacious creations.

The show lives on until 23 December 2011. Mon - Sat, 10am - 5pm.
