Don’t miss this rare opportunity to visit the private studios of some of Adelaide’s most successful artists and hear how they’ve established sustainable careers. Craftsouth’s new series of talks in the artist’s studio invites you to learn from well-regarded creative professionals as they describe their career development – where they started, what they’ve done to get where they are and the lessons they’ve learned along the way. An audience Q&A and the opportunity to network with other creatives will follow, light refreshments provided.

Angela Valamanesh is an internationally renowned ceramic artist. Since graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 1977 she has exhibited work widely both within Australia and internationally. In 1993 she completed an MA in Visual Arts at the University of South Australia and in 1996 she was awarded an Anne & Gordon Samstag International Visual Art Scholarship with a one-year residency at the Glasgow School of Art. Her practice has since broadened to include a wider range of media and a number of collaborative public and studio works with Hossein Valamanesh. In 2005 they completed a major public work entitled 14 Pieces on North Terrace in Adelaide and more recently they designed Ginkgo Gate, the new entrance to the Botanic Gardens of Adelaide, adjacent to Frome Road. She was the subject of the 2008 South Australian monograph and recently completed a PhD at the University of South Australia.
