THREE Commonfolk Studio artists drew inspiration from the Mornington Peninsula’s natural beauty for their first group exhibition, Safe Keeping.
The exhibition combines the work of glass artist Sarah Dingwall, silversmith Kate Macindoe and artist Emma Morgan to explore the concept of preservation as well as their desire to protect an object or moment.
“Though we each make our artworks through different mediums, we noticed we all had similar themes to do with nature and preservation,” Morgan said.
Inspired by the natural world, the artists’ work reflects their connection with places, memories, ideas and objects through their respective mediums.
“We’re really inspired by the beauty of the Mornington Peninsula as we have all grown up here,” Macindoe said.
Their exhibition opened on Friday night at The Nook, 18 Progress St, Mornington, and is open 10am-5pm until Thursday.
