A 2 Day Sculpture Workshop with Michael Snape - Saturday/Sunday 18th & 19th May 2013
The Outback Regional Gallery will host a two day workshop with Michael Snape, a dedicated and highly respected sculptural artist. Michael has been a practicing artist for the last 40 years, making sculpture for exhibition, private commissions and public works.
“My practice as a sculptor is characterised by an intuitive and playful response to site and context, which incorporates elements including landscape, architecture, vista and feeling.I believe the power of the artist is significant in establishing and clarifying who we are and how we see, in the world.”
This workshop will be run in conjunction with the John Villiers Waltzing Matilda Outback Art Show, which runs from the 13th May to the 11th July 2013.
