A really handsome and spacious presentation of 51 selected members of Craft. Congratulations to curator Chlöe and Craft staff for pulling this together.
Award for Excellence
(Recognising the highest achievement in creativity, innovation and design across media. Supported by the Bowness Family Foundation.)
Delighted to cheer the Award for Excellent given to David Ray for his baroquely decorated soup turin.
Upon acceptance of his award, David took the microphone to remind us all that Australia continues to be in denial of our genocidal history and that this work highlights the lie that Australia Day celebrates.
