We’re thrilled today to share with you some news from our Alumni – Sans Souci: a group craft exhibition, featuring works from six up-and-coming artists who all happen to be graduates of BATD!
Sans Souci is an exploration of Australiana by six emerging artists from intersecting craft backgrounds at Little Woods Gallery in Collingwood from Nov 6th – 30th
Inspired by kitschy souvenirs of the past and Australian icons, the works by artists Edith Rewa Barrett, Loredana Camarata, Megan McNeill, Stephanie Rushworth, Esther Sandler and Tara Whalley span a range of overlapping disciplines including illustration, textiles, ceramics and craft.
Capturing ideas of memento and nostalgia, as well as celebrating the flora and fauna of our country,
Sans Souci investigates the idea of the souvenir as a cultural artifact, both beautiful and cringe-worthy.
