Unfolding Art

Caroline Barker is Artist in Residence


Tuesday 22 - Monday 28 January 2019 (closed on Sunday)

10 am - 4 pm

Admission free


Caroline is well-known locally for her delightful handmade books combining printmaking and calligraphy. Her residency in the art gallery offers an opportunity to observe her calligraphy skills and see how she constructs her books using covers decorated with batik, inks and paints and finished with delicate ribbons. She plans to make some long books which will hang from the walls as an installation. Caroline is also investigating other book-related forms, such as a book in a tin and another in a carousel format.
In addition to the bookworks, the exhibition area of the gallery will showcase Caroline’s framed printmaking.
