Please join us at Carrick Hill for the first edition of reVision: Community with Catherine Truman and the 2022 Guildhouse Annual General Meeting.
reVision: Community is a new initiative extending the outreach of the reVision program, providing an opportunity for the Guildhouse community to connect with each other in person, around a particular topic or theme. Centred around a 15-minute keynote from a leading artist in the scenic setting of Carrick Hill, the session provides a haven for artists to come together to socialise, share ideas and a beverage. The first speaker in the series is celebrated local artist Catherine Truman, currently Artist in Residence at Carrick Hill.
During 2022 Truman is Artist in Residence at Carrick Hill, undertaking a project titled The Arrangements: assembling nature. Built in 1939 in the style of the English Manor, Carrick Hill remains as one of the few period homes in Australia to survive with its original contents and extensive cultivated gardens almost completely intact and its grounds undiminished. A remarkable place for a residency to contemplate the ways we arrange and assemble the natural world.
The 2022 Guildhouse Annual General Meeting will follow the artist talk, and all are welcome.
