Sally Kidall Artist in Residence at Shaw Wines
Monday 13 – Sunday 26 September
The historic sheep shearing shed will inspire Sally’s practice as a site-responsive artist. She will create a unique installation, interrupting the traditional lines of the existing structure to bring out the multiple layers of history & the stories it holds.
An evening event on 26 August will invite the public to experience a fabric/video projection based intervention.
Keep an eye on the STA social media stream for pop-up opportunities during the residency.
