WEBINAR - Meet Rockhampton Region Artisan in Residence Mari Hirata
Time & Location
About the Event
Introducing our Rockhampton Region CQ Shopfront Artisans in Residence - Mari Hirata. Mari Hirata is a visual artist + silversmith based in Brisbane.
Since completing her MAVA at Queensland College of Art, Mari has exhibited in venues throughout Australia and overseas. Her practice over the years has revolved around photography, sculpture, installation, and silversmithing, and her works are housed in collections including the National Gallery of Australia (Canberra), HOTA (Gold Coast), and UTS (Sydney).
Mari has received ongoing mentorship under renowned Gold & Silversmith Sel Pilgrim since 2014, and has progressed onto developing a distinct style that responds to her surroundings and relational concepts, while reflecting the aesthetics and sensibilities of her Japanese cultural heritage.
Her wearable art pieces are currently stocked at the Museum Of Brisbane, Artisan, and Lorraine Pilgrim + Studio 87 (Gold Coast).
Hear about what Mari will be doing during her residency in Rockhampton and how local artists can get involved. This webinar is also great for artists from other regions to learn about Mari's practice.
