Artist Elizabeth Pedler will be in residence at Central Greenough from September 22 until October 20, 2014 as part of the City of Greater Geraldton’s Central Greenough Artist in Residence Program.
During her visit, Elizabeth will be creating a new body of work and inviting the community to engage with her and practice in a range of arts.
Based in Perth, Elizabeth’s artwork takes on many forms including new ways to generate participation and interaction in art spaces that use materials such as mirrors, light, sound, styrofoam beans and even conversation.
While in residence Elizabeth will be creating a series of artworks which respond to the sensory environment of the Central Greenough buildings to create subtle but affecting experiences for the audience.
As she is yet unacquainted with Geraldton, Elizabeth will be inviting members of the local community to join her for a meal and to share stories about life in the area.
Elizabeth will be presenting an artist talk at ACDC Community Gallery as part of the Sunset Salon series, discussing her art practice and the processes of making art.
There will be workshops open to all members of the public to collaborate on sensory perception and participation. More information on these workshops and the Sunset Salon series can be viewed on http://www.acdcarts.com, or contact ACDC.
At the completion of the residency period, Elizabeth will be opening up a space at ACDC for an exhibition from October 17 – 19 at 12 - 6pm each day, Elizabeth will also be present during these times to answer questions about her new works.
On October 18 there is a potluck event open to all audiences to join the Elizabeth for a shared meal and celebration.
