Ashfield Council invite’s you to the opening of the inaugural Artist in Residence Exhibition “A Decade of Stories”.
This exhibition celebrates the 10 year anniverary of this invauable program to the Ashfield community.
Over the past 10 years 27 International and Regional Artists, have taken up residence within the Historic Thiring Villa in Pratten Park, Ashfield and have shared skills and smiles while engaging with the Ashfield community.
This year our current artist in residence Lara Scolari from Dubbo in Central West NSW, is bringing her skills in exhibition management and curation to our community. With over six years working within The Western Plains Cultural Centre in Education, Administration and Exhibiton Managment & Installation. Lara has used her knowledge to design, develop, install and curate an exhibition to celebrate the aquired works from Ashfield Councils Collection. Each Artist in Residence donates a work from their time within the community to Ashfield Council – these works have not yet collectivley been on display for the public until now.
Lara has re engaged with the past 27 resident artists of Ashfield and asked each of them to reflect on their time within our community, these “Stories” are married with the Artwork donated by each artist within the collection.
The exhibition held within the Ashfield Town Hall, gives visitors the opprtunity to discover and or reengage with the Artists over the past 10 years.
