Solo Shows by Amanda Shelsher, Anne Smerdon, Jacqui Doran + Jennifer Mondfr

Event Description

We have four amazing female artists exhibiting at 19 KAREN Contemporary Artspace this coming May, including Gold Coast local Anne Smerdon!

In conjunction with her solo show Wild Things, Byron Bay artist Jacqui Doran will be hosting an Artist Talk as part of the Sofitel Hotel - Gold Coast’s Art Lovers High Tea on Friday 10 May from 11.30 to 1pm. She will be sharing insights into various aspects of her arts practice. As the talk is accompanied by High Tea bookings are essential. Please contact us to reserve your seat!

Western Australian artist Amanda Shelsher creates intricate and mesmerising sculptures that tell her own story. Her new solo show Nature, Nurture is the latest chapter of Amanda’s journey as an artist, mother and human. Her work is very realistic; almost like the sculptures could just come to life and start telling you their story. You may be able to walk away but their presence will stay with you.

Gold Coaster Anne Smerdon has drawn inspiration from our beautiful Hinterland in her new solo show Wild Horses. This new body of work from Anne narrates the story of mystical girls who have been raised by horses and in turn become their protectors. Using her delicate whimsical folk style and background in architecture, Anne’s artworks are detailed, colourful and full of heart.

Jacqui Doran has drawn inspiration from Maurice Sendak’s children’s book ‘Where the Wild Things’ are for her new show Wild Things. The collection is painted from the perspective of a sculpture called ‘Rabbit Boy (my futures so bright)’ who looks out onto a world of animals all of whom are standing proud and at one with their species.

At Least I Have You, To Remember Me by American artist Jennifer Mondfrans explores the historical importance of pioneering female scientists through portraiture as forgotten subjects. The paintings in this series feature portraits of pioneering female scientists, including Ada Lovelace, Barbara McClintock and Emmy Noether. Accompanying the portraits are letters mounted on wooden plaques that are written from the scientist to you the viewer.
