TUESDAY, NOV. 6: Artists from the Charman Prize 2012 will be discussing their work at a series of public events at the gallery this month. 

The first event takes place Wednesday evening with talks by Jacqueline Alama and Kase, Chris Burville, Caroline Troncossi and Betty Lindo Perry. They will show examples of and talk about their work at Masterworks in the Botanical Gardens. Doors open at 5:30pm for a 6pm start. 

On November 14 there will be a roundtable discussion led by education coordinator Robyn Hooper on the subject of Artists Working Towards a Beautiful Future. All Charman artists have been invited to host the discussion.

Ms Hooper said the roundtable was about: “How can arts help the community, what can artists be doing to make life a more beautiful place for the general public. How can we show the world that we are all creative and that by tuning in to your creativity can increase your productivity?”

The roundtable is open to the public and begins at 2:30pm.

Finally on November 21 there will be winners’ slide from 5:30pm to 6pm from five of the prize-winners. Overall winner Molly Godet will discuss her art, inspiration and work then will answer questions. There will also be talks by Teresa Kirby Smith, Gavin ‘Djata’ Smith, Alan C Smith and Libby.

Ms Godet won the $10k Charman Prize for her watercolour painting Green Man Gombey. She recently picked up her cheque and declared that the money would go towards funding her son Charlie’s Masters in Fine Arts and Sculpture at the Royal College of Art in London.
