Artist talk a real gem

Have you ever wondered what makes a contemporary jeweller tick?

Join Oliver Smith at Artspace Mackay this Thursday (May 16) at 6pm as he gives insight into his ‘obsession’ - his passion for making art and what inspires him.

Mr Smith will delve into his approach to the metallurgy process and how he creates his jewellery pieces.

He will visit Mackay from Sydney where he also lectures at the Sydney College of the Arts.

This enjoyable and informative evening includes refreshments and will provide opportunities for questions and conversation.

If you’re an artist interested in gold and silversmithing, a student exploring career paths, or simply a lover of contemporary art and jewellery, this event is for you!

Oliver’s beautiful work features in Obsessed: Compelled to make, an Australian Design Centre touring exhibition that explores the preoccupations that drive the creative process, on show at Artspace until May 19.

The talk is free, and bookings are not required.
