Annual exhibition She is celebrating women in Greater Dandenong.
The show is in its 20th year and features the work of six emerging female artists.
Greater Dandenong Mayor Youhorn Chea said the exhibition was “an opportunity to celebrate their talents and give them a launching pad as they embark on their careers after study”.
“She 2018 also coincides with International Women’s Day so it is a true celebration of women and the significant contribution they continue to make to our world,” he said.
Photographer Talia Carroll and digital artist Julia Burke recently graduated from RMIT University. Caroll captures images of the body while Burke uses the shadow the passing sun casts as inspiration for her work.
Yvonne Jemmeson studied at Chisholm Institute in Dandenong. Her print, collage and sculpture works explore consumer goods’ packaging.
Monash University graduate Susan Pover makes sculptures that are a form of prosthesis. She explores how they make life more difficult rather than easier.
Fellow Monash student Berth Putri makes intricate, large scale drawings with batik motifs that become like personal flags.
The sixth artist is painter Madeline Nibali, who graduated from the Victorian College of the Arts.
She will take part in the Dandenong Arts Series at Dandenong Library and host free painting workshops on Tuesday 20 March from 6.30pm to 8pm.
She will be on display at Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre in Dandenong until Thursday 29 March.
The gallery is open Tuesday to Friday, 11am to 5pm and Saturdays, 11am to 3pm.
