Radiant Pavilion
Catherine, Sue and Jess have just returned from Melbourne where they were exhibiting Theatre of Detail at Funaki Project Space during Radiant Pavilion, a week long event includes urban interventions, performances and installations, as well as exhibitions, talks and open studios celebrating aspects of contemporary jewellery and object practice. Fingers crossed this is the first of many radiant pavilions!!!
It was an action packed week and we were thrilled to be a part of it. We had scores of people through the gallery each day and a fantastic response to our work and lots of people interested in coming an working with us at Gray Street.
Crossley Street was also being occupied by a number of New Zealand jewellers, it was so nice to spend some time with them and we are super excited about spending more time with them in their respective home towns when we take Theatre of Detail to New Zealand in March 2016.

Thank you to all those who attended our Theatrette during the Adelaide Fringe Festival, showing Provocations: inimitable voices, the body & progressive thinking. A film event curated by Sim Luttin and presented by Gray Street Workshop. Two programs that aim to provoke questions about art and craft practice, the body, its boundaries and innovative ways of thinking all in our very own driveway cinema!

The Theatre of Detailexhibition, new work by workshop partners Jess Dare, Sue Lorraine and Catherine Truman, will open in our gallery on 5 March and this will be followed by the Theatrette, a pop-up driveway cinema featuring a curated program of jewellery related films on 11, 12 and 18, 19 of March.
