Featuring: ART WORKS Artist in Residence Carly Snoswell
Join us for an informal Crafternoon with ART WORKS Artist in Residence Carly Snoswell.
You’re invited to bring your own project along for an afternoon of communal crafting or use the materials provided by Carly to add your guilty pleasure to the growing artwork, it’s up to you! Come for a chat, share ideas and sharpen your skills in company while you work on your individual craft project. No experience is necessary to participate.
Note, this Crafternoon is unguided, you will lead your own making in a fun, creative environment.
Carly’s residency [un]Guilty Pleasures is an exercise in examining and unpacking the idea of guilty pleasures – those things that we do or consume that bring joy – but are often looked down upon as trivial or undignified. [un]Guilty Pleasures invites the public to divulge their weird and wonderful hobbies or obsessions. Those little things that bring pure and utter joy.
ART WORKS is delivered by Guildhouse in partnership with the City of Adelaide.
Carly Snoswell is an artist working and living on Kaurna Land. Her work has recently examined fandom and the creation of craft objects as an ode to particular pop-cultural phenomenon through gendered and labourious forms of craft-making. While still observing similar notions of obsession, devotion, longing and identity, Snoswell’s practice has recently broadened from themes of popular culture as she begins to explore personal experiences of motherhood, infertility and homemaking.
In 2012 she graduated with First Class Honours at the South Australian School of Art and since then has exhibited widely including internationally. Snoswell was Co-Director of FELTspace ARI and has participated in studio residencies in Adelaide, Melbourne, India, New York, Japan and Iceland. She was a member of Mint Studios from 2015-17 and Holy Rollers Studios from 2017-20, however now takes up studio in the Adelaide CBD. She recently completed a Masters by Research at the South Australian School of Art with her thesis “Beyonce is a Port Supporter”. Since 2015 she has been building a career as a Youth Arts Worker and is currently Youth Program Officer for the City of Onkaparinga.
