Come along to hear from the artists Maggie and Emma on their exhibition 'A Sense of Place' currently installed at Connection Arts Space.

Our artist talks welcome perspectives and discussion around the body of work displayed. We hope this creates a clearer understanding of the artworks intentions and the role it plays in community, politics or academia.
This is NOT a place to feel confused, unwelcome or intimidated, this is an event that promotes & encourages conversation and understanding.

✴️...This is an interactive exhibition; you are invited to take pieces of it home with you! ...✴️

We hope you can join us!

From Emma:

" People are continuously visiting galleries to see exhibited works, however they rarely consider the space they
are in. Scratches, marks, damages- all the characteristics in and surrounding the gallery go unnoticed despite
helping to define the space. My artwork, a series of abstract photographs, focuses on these overlooked
features in C.A.S' surrounding environment. The images presented are from a collection that have been taken
on the journey from Dandenong train station to the gallery. "

From Maggie:

" I have been compelled, through the fresh eyes of a migrant, to record the colours, patterns and textures of the
land I now call home through the magic of photography. As I travelled this country, nostalgia for my birthplace
gave way to delight, awe and respect for my new home. I believe that our ancient island nation can unite our
diverse population if we seek to understand it’s raw beauty, resilience and fragility and in so doing perhaps
connect us to it and to each other. "
