THIS WAY

new works in wax and clay by Heidi Strachan

18 May to 11 June

Official opening 6pm May 18 with Peter Haynes, CEO, Strathnairn Arts and performance by special guests Jannawi Dance Clan

This Way features the work of emerging ceramic artist Heidi Strachan, who graduated last year from the ANU School of Art and Design. The exhibition is the latest in Canberra Pottersí exhibition awards presented annually through the ANUís Emerging Artist Support Scheme (EASS).

Heidiís strong graphic work moves between traditional hand-built vessels and wall installations and uses an eclectic mix of materials that includes clay, beeswax, charcoal, oil paint, graphite, ochre and sand. Most of the works in this exhibition reference Coppins Crossing Road and sights seen along its way but there are others where homage is paid to the traditional Korean stoneware known as Buncheong.

This yearís exhibition is a departure from previous years with just one graduate selected for the award instead of a small number of graduates sharing the exhibition space. Heidiís strong works, and the large sizes of the wall pieces, take full advantage of the spaciousness of the gallery.
