Artist’s talk with Gerry Wedd
JamFactory Icon Gerry Wedd talks about his exhibition, Kitschen Man
10am Saturday 16 Feb, FIELD Engineers Gallery, Artspace Mackay
Free to attend, all welcome!
Gerry Wedd enjoys a national reputation in Australia for his hand-built blue and white ceramics that brim with a dry wit oscillating from the humorous to darkly disturbing. From his beginnings at the kitchen table, guided by his mother’s hobby-obsession through to formal training at University of South Australia and his studio tenancy at JamFactory, Wedd draws his craft out of his own inspirations, interest and experiences. The show also features works from an ever-changing personal collection of inspiration, work made by family, friends, colleagues and mentors. Meet Gerry on the last weekend of the exhibition in Mackay and learn about his career, his personal art collection, and his touring show, Kitschen Man.
