Opening: Friday 4 February 6-8pm
Lauren Simeoni and Melinda Young delight in finding expression of the natural in the unnatural (and vice versa). Focussing their work on botany and the body both jewellers exploit the potential of found objects through the play of colour, materiality, and unexpected notions of display. Presented as part of the Adelaide Fringe 2011.
Exhibition will run from 5 February - 20 March
Artist Talk to be held on Saturday 19 February
