Today, the fifth day of the residency at The Railway Hotel, are our public presentations.
Therese reads her poetry. In centring her experiences with the history of this place, I am all ears.
I set up my first public site-specific art installation in The Travellers Room of The Railway Hotel where I have been working.
As flat as a pancake is how I would describe the plastic sheet this morning after dancing with the drafts since my arrival. I wonder, what will it be like for the installation at my presentation later today? I charcoal some more and lay my drawings and paintings out in conversation with this studio set up and some images on my laptop of the sheets in motion.
Generously welcomed later at Kinkara studios, we feast on figs from a local tree, take in the old wooden ironing board alliance with the old printing presses and edge on our seats for the poetry reading. Thanks Tim, Lynn and Margrete too - you make this place in time so yummy.
The Ironbark Arts Residency Program is co-produced by Orana Arts Inc and the STAA.
