The third iteration of the annual Michael Reid + Country Style Magazine exhibition takes place at a moment of new creative heights. The second at the helm of Editor, Kylie Imeson, new ground has been broken in the production of The Art of the Garden. This year our exhibiting artists are the most diverse group we have ever assembled, with artists presenting their work direct from studios in urban city centres, regional Australia and in one case, from Berlin. It is also our immense pleasure to welcome painting work by first nations artists for this year’s exhibition. The artistic voices who have responded to this exhibition have surpassed all expectations, bringing us some of the most interesting interpretations of our wonderfully green brief.
We welcome Michael Reid CLAY in 2022 as we present functional wares created by a group of Australia’s most revered ceramicists. Ronan Sulich and Sydney Gallery Manager Ashleigh Jones have curated a selection of garden inspired items for Michael Reid OBJECT, and the Murrurundi Argus will profile Denise Faulkner and the garden that inspires her wonderful watercolour paintings.
