The 2011 Autumn Salon
Wed 30 Mar - Thu 14 Apr 2011
Works by the staff community of Monash Gippsland Campus
The 2011 Autumn Salon, showcased works by the staff community of Monash Gippsland Campus.
This year’s Salon included work from professional artists who taught at The Gippsland Centre for Art and Design, working in painting, printmaking, video, installation, performance, photography, sculpture, ceramics and multimedia.
However it was the work of the general campus workforce that surprised and delighted visitors to the last Salon. The 2009 Winter Salon unearthed a multiplicity of quilt-makers, painters documentary photographers and sculptors (amongst many other art forms) making impressive work.
Said Switchback curator Rodney Forbes, “Gippsland staff will be surprised at what their colleagues get up to at night! The workmanship and creative zest that comes out in the Salon is inspiring and shows why the Gippsland campus is such an innovator within Monash.”
