Solo Exhibition in the Glassworks Main Gallery

Artist Annette Blair explores our perception and relationship with everyday objects and how they can hold memories and meaning beyond their function. A highly skilled glass blower and sculptor, Blair works with hot glass and enamels to recreate familiar everyday things; hand tools, used spray cans, knitting needles and paintbrushes. Assembled into complex installations, she encourages us to look closely at each object amongst the mass and to think about the things we collect and keep and the stories they tell. This exhibition is a visual story that shares a profound sense of nostalgia which looks at how objects can hold meaning while often appearing meaningless.

Annette Blair has received support from artsACT and the Australia Council for the Arts for this exhibition.
