Object Gallery is currently showing two exhibitions. Blue in the main gallery has been curated by Object's own Kylie Johnston and Annette Mauer. It features the work of 9 makers from around Australia: ceramists Gerry Wedd, Honor Freeman & Mel Robson, glass artist Brenden Scott French, textile artist Lucille Martin, jewellers Brenda Factor & Melinda Young, book sculptor Nicholas Jones and mixed media artist Emma Davies. Each maker has responded to a phrase relating to the colour blue to provide inspiration for the new work shown in the exhibition. The results are absolutely stunning (if we do say so ourselves!) here is a slideshow of Blue:

As a special retail treat to accompany the Blue exhibition we have given our entire Collectors Cabinet over to blue work by a diverse range of makers represented by Collect - there is an abundance of exquisite glass, ceramics, jewellery, textiles and objects - all in blue!
Accompanying Blue in the Project Space is Big: Sydney's Small Studios a collaborative project by designer Stephen Goddard and photographer Keith Saunders that features a glimpse behind the scenes of 12 of Sydney's independent design studios. Aside from the fascinating subject matter, the exhibition design is pretty neat too! Here is a slideshow of Big:
