ARTS WEST
CATCH UP CLUB - CONNECTIONS

THURSDAY 25 JULY, 6 - 8PM

Join us for a very special Artists networking event as part of CONNECTED, an exhibition by Arts West Creative Members; Francesca De Maria; Linda Fry; Tamirat Gebremarium; Jonathan Goodfellow; and Larissa MacFarlane and curated by Danielle Smelter.

This exhibition draws on connections; between the artist and their work, between other artists; and to the world in different but interrelated ways. Because creativity, and beyond that creative practice, cannot thrive in isolation. It requires inspiration, conversation, points of reception and interaction, funding, practical support, re-evaluation. It requires an audience, and to be sustainable it usually requires a market. These are all elements a creative practice needs to thrive and flourish, but at its core, artistic practice is driven more simply by a need to connect.

Come and hear our artists talk about their work and the importance of connection to their artistic practice. There will be food and wine and great conversation and a wonderful opportunity to meet with fellow artists in the West.

WHEN: 6 – 8pm, Thursday 25th July 2019
WHERE: Long Space Gallery, 419 Melbourne Rd, Newport VIC 3015
COST: No Charge

Catch Up Club – Connections is proudly presented by Hobsons Bay City Council in conjunction with Arts West Catch Up Club series. This event aims to provide a platform for artists to share ideas and seek advice, access professional development opportunities and network with others.

CONNECTED
25 JULY - 4 AUGUST, 2019

Arts West Creative Members unite to bring you an exhibition drawing on the common threads of connection; to each other, their practice and the world around them in different but interrelated ways. To think about connection is to draw attention to the spaces between us, between objects, between experience and between thoughts. Multitudinous connections are forming on a continual basis, some tenuous, others established. The form these connections take varies, from loose associations, meaningful relationships, to complex interdependencies. Curated by Danielle Smelter, the exhibition features the work of Francesca De Maria; Linda Fry; Tamirat Gebremarium; Jonathan Goodfellow; and Larissa MacFarlane.

Connections is presented by Arts West and exhibiting artists and supported by Hobsons Bay City Council.
