My lovely friend Katherine Bowman contacted me today about her new venture called Northcity4. I am always interested in what Katherine has to say and thought you might be too. Katherine is part of a group of five talented artists who have come together to create a new contemporary jewellery and object studio and school in Brunswick.
The NC4 studio and school is the initiative of artists Romani Benjamin, Katherine Bowman, Anna Davern, Caz Guiney and Ali Limb. This group of artists has come together with the aim of sharing their knowledge, skills and techniques through mentorships, seminars, access studios and workshops. Sounds wonderful.
They are having a launch on March 2nd from 6pm – 8pm at 61 Weston Street in Brunswick. The ‘entertainment’ is varied – you can listen to Marcus Westbury, columnist for the The Age and with Not Quite Art on ABC1 and Natalia Milosz-Piekarska, award-winning contemporary jeweller. Katherine’s beautiful prints and Ali Limb’s jewellery will be for sale on the night to help fund the next stage of NC4’s development. And it’s not a party without music, as provided by a local DJ, no doubt uber cool.
