An exhibition of ceramic works by Jane Sawyer and Sandy Lockwood
“Earth holds eons of memory that leave tantalizing traces of the story for us to discover. We can see weathered surfaces and emerging rocks resurfacing after millions of years of embedded slumber. Fossils reveal themselves, providing traces of past plant and animal life. Clay is part of this story. Matter formed millions of years ago from rock that is ground, washed and moved, sometimes violently, mostly quietly, by the weathering process. Gathered by us, it comes to life under the maker’s hand. Objects made can therefore have a long memory …” (Sandy Lockwood).
Opening celebration Friday 12th August 5-7pm
Artpuff is a new little showing and making space at the Mill in Castlemaine.Run by artists Kir Larwill and Melissa Proposch, Artpuff brings together curated exhibitions by some of our most delectable regional artists, with creative workshops for locals, tourists, business, teams and not-for-profits. Artpuff also brings extra hearts and minds to those wanting to talk business and community – to plan projects, develop business or arts governance, or generate ideas for communication and marketing of arts practice.
The Mill Castlemaine is a place to experience delicious local produce made onsite or grown nearby; a place to find vintage treasure and artisan-made wares, a place to admire and create art, and a place to enjoy live music and a variety of events.There are three ‘precincts’ – food, vintage and artists/makers. The Mill is home to the Castlemaine Vintage Bazaar and Platform No. 5, a ginormous emporium of over 2,500 square metres where a multitude of stallholders sell vintage and retro treasure, up-cycled, second-hand, antique and hand-made goods (showcasing the creative onsite makers), fine art, collectables, oddities and Asian artefacts. There are artists in residence in quirky art spaces. Visitors can participate in workshops ranging from one hour drawing and print-making walk-up classes to pre-booked half-day or multi day mosaics workshops. There are a number of other creative small businesses dotted around the site as well as street art by Baby Guerrilla, Damien Mitchell and Libre Hem.
