Return to Hanging Rock preview

As I mentioned recently, two of my works, A Cabinet of Moth Masks and Vignette Vitrine, have been included in the exhibition Return to Hanging Rock at the National Trust property, Mulberry Hill, the former home of Picnic at Hanging Rock author Joan Lindsay. (To view A Cabinet of Moth Masks and learn more about the exhibition, go to Blog Post Sunday November 8 HERE).

Return to Hanging Rock doesn’t officially open until January 2, but can be previewed tomorrow for one day only at Mulberry Hill’s Twilight Christmas Festival between the hours of 2-7 pm. Unfortunately, I can’t attend because of an unavoidable clash, but am very much looking forward to seeing the exhibition in early 2016.

Vignette Vitrine was originally made for a group exhibition of the same name at Hand Held Gallery, Melbourne in 2012. Pictured below are three of the miniature silhouettes that reside in the small display case. To see inside it and learn about the primary inspiration for the silhouette imagery, go HERE.
