Peta recently returned to Casula Powerhouse Art Centre to discuss her latest experimentations with concepts and materials, and we are all looking forward to the outcomes. She also met her CPAC Mentor Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist, Dennis Golding for the first time.
CPAC Manager, Craig Donarski said "Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Dharug Strategic Management Group, along with the support of David Harding and Nabila Ansara, we’ve grown the scholarship to include mentorship by an established First Nations artist.
This addition to the scholarship is a total game changer! Peta and Dennis got on really well and discussed ideas. Dennis also gave Peta a lot of great insights into his art-making processes, which has opened a totally new direction for Peta and her practice."
Dennis is providing a one-on-one workshop teaching Peta casting and moulding skills, which will lead to new work for her exhibition opening in October. We look forward to sharing with you and the world what comes out of it all later in the year… stay tuned and see you soon.
