Exhibition Talk Tour review in Nov 2015: Sarah Webber, Lisa Ghent, Nellie Rogerson

Studio Kura had individual exhibitions by three Australian female artists who were participated in our Artist in Residency program in the end of November 2015.
On the opening day, the Talk Tour took place in several places; the gallery, a studio and a residence house.

The tour began by Sarah Webber from Sydney, who exhibited “Elements of Play” at our main gallery.
She presented a large lighting installation in this christmas season. The work created the gallery space into a warm and colourful play-ground like space.
