Brenda Ridgewell bracelet

ap‐ ro‐ po

ap-ro-po is a group exhibition of six artists whose work shares a common purpose through its making. Handmade objects created through the intentioned labour and skill set of these artists provides a forum within which the group supports, questions and critiques each other’s processes. 

Diverse and coupled with a joy of making, the interaction between these artists is aimed at strengthening the depth of investigation and expanding the relationship between maker, participant, audience and wearer. The result of this ongoing group dynamic is ap-ro-po, an exhibition of works by six accomplished West Australian women which fosters growth and creativity, with the purpose of celebrating each other’s unique potential. 

Exhibiting artists: Helena Bogucki, Brenda Ridgewell, Claire Townsend, Christel Van der Laan and Robin Wells.

Details: Wednesday 3 October – Saturday 20 October
