Hey Melbourne…!

Melissa is in Melbourne, two names that were made for one another. Then there’s Words & Works from a World Away as well as Seams Seems, and apparently alliteration is in fashion 😉

I’m in town this week for a couple of exhibition openings and such, and thought I’d bug you all (again) with the details. It would be great to catch up with y’all, so please come along and say hi!

First up: Thursday night from 5-7pm there’s a group exhibition curated by the irrepressible Claire McArdle, Words & Works from a World Away, an exhibition of contemporary jewellery and objects by Australian and Estonian artists. ‘A reflective exhibition of our own identity through others eyes.’

Thursday 18th July
(and if you Facebook it’s up here.)

Then on Friday there is the Seams Seems Symposium AND exhibition opening, at Monash University. The symposium and exhibition feature Monash and Rhode Island School of Design alumni, with the exhibition opening at 6pm after the conclusion of the symposium, at which I am speaking (yup, it’s unlisted on the invite, but it’s true – local legend and Monash educator Roseanne Bartley as well as Wendy Parker, Postgraduate Research Coordinator Jewellery and Object Design at COFA in UNSW are also on the bill.)

Friday 19th July
