Artists Talking – Lisa Ashcroft

August 8 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Townsville artist Lisa Ashcroft talks about her work

Join us at Artspace Mackay as we talk with Lisa Ashcroft about her art practice and approach to Artspace Mackay’s The Wall – an artist-in-residence exhibition program where artists are invited to create a site-specific work directly onto the gallery’s 17 metre foyer wall. Ashcroft is a Townsville based artist who works across painting, sculpture, and installation. During her residency project Scientific Reef Repeat, Ashcroft will create an ambitious installation of over 10,000 paper coral cut-outs, continuing her recent investigations into environmental custodianship, and artificial regeneration of The Great Barrier Reef.

5:30pm Thursday 8 August

Foyer Gallery, Artspace Mackay, Gordon St

This event is FREE to attend.

Refreshments provided.
