Artisans of the Bass Coast Exhibition

A catch up over coffee to support each other during Covid has blossomed into an exhibition showcasing local artisans.

Gold and silversmith Bronwyn Pratt ran the successful Goldsmiths Gallery in San Remo from 2009 until 2018, when she started her “semi-retirement plan” and leased the space to another jeweller.

However the impact of the Covid pandemic on the creative industry made her rethink the decision.

“Everyone was so isolated creatively, so I started the Artisans of Bass Coast coffee club.”

The group would catch up for coffee and provide encouragement and support, in what Bronwyn called “a judgement free zone”.

The original idea for an exhibition, at Kelly and Gemelli gallery in San Remo fell victim to a Covid lockdown.

So Bronwyn decided to step back into the newly vacant gallery space in San Remo (relaunched as The Goldsmith’s Studio), to host the Artisans of Bass Coast exhibition, which runs throughout November.

The exhibition will feature 10 local artists and four jewellery makers and is being run in conjunction with Artfusion Studio and Gallery in Anderson.

“There’s so much artwork, so it will be displayed across the two galleries,” Bronwyn explained.

The displays across the two galleries will feature the art of Amanda Robbins, Ajanta Judd, Annette Marshall, Christine Farrell, Deborah Yanz, Jennie-Maree Tempest, Lynley Northcott, Marlene Abela, Trish Hart and Garbriele Jenkins.

However the work of the four jewellers, Bronwyn, Jane Power, Steven Nicolaou and Monica Szwaja will only be displayed at The Goldsmith’s Studio.

The exhibition will kick off with a grand opening weekend on October 30 and 31, running from 10am – 4pm each day.

A group of artisans that live on the Bass Coast got together for Coffee during COVID ......the result was to organise a group exhibition of 10 artisans and Bronwyn reopened her Gallery!
