The SHAC returns to Robbo / Home again

ARTSfile congratulates The SHAC on this great news:  the Southern Highlands Artisans Collective (SHAC) has found a new home and will be returning to Robertson once again.

The new premises will be at 91 Hoddle Street (next door to Pecora Cheese and Wine) from November 2023.

In their own words:

We are beyond excited for the SHAC to return to Robertson, a place that has always been close to our hearts.

We started our journey here, and it feels like a homecoming. We deeply cherish the bond we share with the vibrant, artistically inclined community of Robertson.

The SHAC will continue to deliver contemporary exhibitions, exhibition-related workshops, and occasional artisan markets.

We appreciate the unwavering support we have received throughout the years, and we look forward to flourishing alongside our community, with renewed vigour and dedication.

Kicking off the new premises on Saturday Nov 11:

The last show at Bowral features Caroline Traill in a show called Renewal

This body of work has evolved over time and combines my three areas of art practice, drawing, painting and printmaking. It is a direct intuitive response to a landscape that I’m particularly familiar with. I grew up on a farm in northwestern NSW and that landscape continues to influence my work to this day.

The cyclical changes of the seasons and the ability of nature to recover from catastrophic events, though increasingly challenged, have long held a fascination and provided endless inspiration for my work.

Caroline is a Newcastle based artist with a strong connection to the Australian landscape. Drawing is the core of her practice alongside painting and printmaking.
