Hidden Beauty explores our bond with the natural environment and how we can benefit from a more conscious observation of this connection. Gasworks Arts Park resident artist Rebecca Garfield, is opening her studio to present work that pays homage to our living world and the relationship that we have with it. The studio is nestled within 5 hectares of the secret garden in Albert Park that is Gasworks Arts Park; and will display natural objects, imagery and flora that influence her work from concept sketches to completed pieces. After enjoying the studio space, visitors are encouraged to explore the beautiful surrounds of Gasworks Arts Parks for their own natural objects; or can use items already in the studio to experiment with their interpretations of our natural environment. This is a journey of self discovery so watercolour paints, pencils and oil pastels will be available to play with this discovery; and Rebecca will be on hand to guide your individual process. No skills are required to participate, just an appetite for exploration and creativity!
Delicious food and coffee are available from Priscilla Jones Cafe located within the park, and exhibition spaces located within the main venue will be open as well. Hidden Beauty Open Studio will be taking place at the Showcase Studio located opposite the cafe. All Gasworks venues are wheelchair accessible and Service dogs are welcome.
