Eryka Garbutt | Artist Talk – Waste Not

Join Artist Eryka Garbutt for the last week of Waste Not…..

Mixed Media Artist – Eryka Garbutt is known for her marvellous mind and for finding new ways to reuse or recycle materials in her many art forms.

Pendant | Cutlery | Eryka Garbutt

This is a wonderful opportunity to see a more focused body of work by the artist, utilising materials often dismissed.

Recycling takes materials such as plastic, paper, metal, and glass and breaks them down so that they can be made into a new product. Up-cycling is the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful.

Re-purposing is to change (something) so that it can be used for a different purpose. There is a fine line between the three and often they just merge. – Eryka

Works on show include Pendants made from Cutlery, Sculptures made from household items and Wall Art from Toilet Rolls.

Announced Today! New West Belconnen Suburb – Strathnairn

West Belconnen Suburbs Announced

Minister Berry and David Maxwell from Riverview announcing the names of the first two suburbs for the West Belconnen development – Strathnairn and Macnamara

So proud to be included in the announcement of the first two suburbs for the new West Belconnen development. Suburb number one is called Strathnairn and calls to mind the existing arts precinct and the farm which the Baird family owned and named. The naming of the suburb speaks to the inclusive nature of the new development which will border and almost curve around Strathnairn Arts in a semicircle and the sympathy between the rural creative precinct and the urban sustainable development which will see Strathnairn with new neighbours from 2018.

We look forward to this growing community and embracing them in our arts programs, workshops and exhibitions. The opportunity to influence and educate the many personalities in Strathnairn the suburb is to exciting to be left unattended.
The second suburb announcement honours a pioneering woman in the medical field Dame Annie Jean Macnamara, who is recognised and best known for her contributions to children’s health and welfare, especially in the polio area.
