Artist Residency 26 – 31 April
We are excited to welcome Mashara Wachjudy to The Nook Gallery for a week of reflection, research and exploration. Mashara will be setting up an art studio where her exploration will focus on landscapes, but will also touch on the Indigenous histories of the Bunwurrung people and land in the Kulin nation. Mashara is interested in exploring place and time and her relationship to the land of the Mornington Peninsula.
After being away for a year, Mashara has come to realise how significant the Mornington Peninsula landscape is and wants to explore this in her art – through photography, sculpture, writing, drawing, painting, collage – whatever feels right! She will then be exhibiting the completed works later this year at The Nook Gallery.
Mashara would like to invite the public to come and interact with her artistic process – all are welcome to pop in and have a chat whilst perusing her works in progress.
Dates: Sat 26 – Thu 31 March 2016
Time: 10–3pm daily
Location: 18 Progress St, Mornington (Next door to Commonfolk)
Space: Small Front Gallery
