We have a Wonderful exhibition on in our main Gallery at the moment, be sure to stop by and have a look. The Exhibition will run until January 16th 2011, before touring nationally.
Robert Baines is one of Australia's most prominent and influential jewellers and goldsmiths. His exceptional craft skills and extraordinary body of work are being honoured through the 2010 Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft Series.
Each year Object Gallery celebrates the accomplishments of an Australian Maker. 6th in the series, “Robert Baines: Metalwork” is sure to delight and intrigue. Gallery entry is free and open late on thursday nights during December.
Baines has profoundly shaped Australian jewellery, object-making and international historical scholarship. With wry humour, his work challenges our understanding of the world as much as they delight with their technical brilliance.
