CCAS Manuka exhibition “Best in Show” plus “Glass 07 Jewellery” at Workshop Bilk…


The Gang couldn’t attend Canberra Contemporary Art Space Manuka’s opening of Best in Show on Thursday night, which by all accounts was a real hoot – but we made sure we mooched across town to run an eye over the livestock the very next day. It’s a tad more exciting than the art’n’craft pavilion at yer average agricultural show, that’s for sure and certain…we’re only sorry we missed the hoe-down and preview swill. Best in Show went to Marina Neilson for A Domestic (above left).

And then there was the opening of Glass 07 Jewellery at Workshop Bilk. The work of several Bilk artists is on display (Helen Aitken-Kuhnen, Phoebe Porter, Ruth Allen, et al), but we have to ‘fess up that we went most specifically to see Sophie Emmet’s stuff. It’s only a week since the last Workshop Bilk opening, which probably accounts for the small – though quality (!) – turn out on the night. Alex Asch even deviated into darkly/glass territory; he dropped in for an afterwork drinkie, having just spent the day installing Brenden Scott French’s show at the Canberra Glassworks. Which, incidently, opens tonight.

Meanwhile the snaps of the day are at…
