Artists’ Talk – Maitland Regional Art Gallery

I will be doing an artists’ talk along with my partner Peter O’Doherty at Maitland Regional Art Gallery on Friday 14th January 2022 from 6-7pm.  We’ll be talking about the work we made for the group exhibition ‘A Conspicuous Object – The Maitland Hospital.  Peter’s paintings are a response to the way Maitland Hospital has undergone facelifts, rebuilds, additions, and adaptions over a span of 170 years.  I will be talking about the background and making of 12 textile sculptures that focus on the female staff of the hospital from the first Matron Elizabeth Morrow 1870 to an Emergency Physician in 2021.

Exhibition curators – Janis Wilton, Joe Eisenberg, Cheryl Farrell.
