April already! We had a lot of fun with our Glorious Food exhibition for ArtMonth in March.

Bridget’s Lipoma Lemon (miracle-gro) brooch provided delicious inspiration for a lemon tart dessert created by Luke Mangan for the Visual Feasts dinner, a collaboration between the 2 Danks St galleries and the renowned chef.

Continuing her long interest in food related art, during ArtMonth Bridget exhibited new works of electroformed and gold plated food, Eat Me!, as well as her fabulous oversized rice neckpiece  food for thought: Cultured (bleached).  Her asparagus pendants were a great favourite and drew much attention.

A special thank you to Mel Young and all who attended her ArtMonth talk.  We love Mel’s colourful works and are always amazed by the diversity of her quirky pieces. Her Apricot Delight neckpiece drew our favourite comment of the month “They’re like fuzzy little bottoms!”

I can still imagine myself wrapped in the smoky shroud of you.
Neckpiece, Sal Wood, 24ct Gold, Glitter, String
After you had bathed, I drank in the smell of your skin – it clung to my clothes, a clean embrace.

The sweet caress of your perfume lingered, long after you had left…
