This month Amy was awarded the 2014 Rotary Club South Award from the Ballarat Arts Foundation to assist with her travel to New York as project documenter of traveling printmaking exhibition 37° 48′ S – artists navigate MELBOURNE.
On Sunday February 15th, an afternoon film screening of Amy’s work will take place at Mitchell Harris Wines Ballarat between 3 & 5pm.
The event will feature film and photography that documents and is inspired by the 37º 48′ S: artists navigate MELBOURNE project including a new collaboration with sound designer and musician Emah Fox. There will also be live music from the fabulous Mick Trembath and delicious snacks catered by Mitchell Harris.
All welcome but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 9th, and don’t forget to check out all the 37º 48′ S: artists navigate MELBOURNE project news including a special artist conversation event on February 19th.
After an inspiring cultural whirlwind through New York, Ireland and Mexico to close the year, Amy is back editing and creating works about New York Print Week and the artist and the city.
Amy is also currently working on an exciting digital project for the City of Ballarat which will launch at Ballarat Heritage Weekend 2015…More soon!
Mini gallery in a box ‘Box Space’, has had its first outing in the Big Space window over the months of July and August. Each mini exhibition was accompanied by a public event where the artist was featured and interviewed.
Stay tuned for more Box Space news!
For City of Ballarat’s Heritage Weekend this year Amy has been working on Living Heritage: Trades & Traditions, an exciting project bringing local history to life through collaboration with graphics and performing arts students from Federation Uni’s Arts Academy and the rich resources of local history held by our people, libraries and museums.
Trades & Traditions celebrates Ballarat’s culture of innovation and community, inviting visitors to explore a trail of photographs, history, and stories in shop windows en route between the Ballarat Railway Station, Mining Exchange, Mechanics Institute, and Town Hall, bringing to life the world of some of the city’s early 20th century traders and traditions.
Assisting at ABC Open, Amy took an ipad filmmaking workshop with local youth to answer ‘Life’s Big Questions.’ Hosted by the Ballarat Library, some of the staff got involved:
The Space Between is a gallery work inviting participation and engagement around the theme of books and reading.
Through visual art, sound, and interactive elements, this show explores how books and knowledge are being experienced, stored, and shared amid technological advancements.
Part love letter to books, part inquiry into the possibilities of digital, people can get involved with workshops, research materials, talks, a pop up library, and evolving artworks in both paper and digital forms.
