The Plate Show
The Plate Show is the second iteration of artwork made on plates by a group of Canberra artists who would regularly meet up to share a meal. The first show Bookplates was held in 2015 on the Electric Wall of Canberra’s famous Electric Shadows bookshop and was curated by Ampersand Duck (Caren Florance) and Helen Maxwell. This time around Ursula Frederick and I invited the Bookplate artists to make new work and invite a friend to the table. The show included work by Alyssa Bagley, Emma Beer, Byrd, Adele Cameron, Fiona Edge, Kirsten Farrell, Caren Florance, UK Frederick, Michelle Hallinan, Katie Hayne, Nicci Haynes, Stephanie Jones, Waratah Lahy, Peter McLean, Julia Miller, Sarah Rice, Johanna Rendel-Short, Jo Searle, Megan Watson, Jen Webb and Naomi Zouwer.
