From Then to Now: Designing Old New Again (Kyneton) Past Event

Presented by Creativity Cluster

From Then to Now: Designing Old New Again explores the use of historic themes, materials and techniques, reinterpreted in new ways as relevant to contemporary art and design. As a corollary, several of us have integrated second-hand, discarded or recycled items into our works.

The exhibition showcases the diversity of this theme across the range of mediums the group uses: Nancy D Lane (NancyDee Sculptures), found object assemblage; Penny Sharples, oil and cold wax; Marina Chamberlain, mixed media and collage with vintage and found papers; Lindsay Hussey, textile and mixed media; Deidre Ogilvie, oil, watercolour and mixed media collage; Pat Duncan, oil and acrylic; Mardie Whitla, hand-built ceramics; and Luna Cameron-Parrish (Amethyst Moon Art), mixed media.

Penny Sharples will be providing an interactive presentation on 12 March from 11am-12pm at The Old Auction House. She will explore important issues for creatives such as intentions and priorities, sustaining creative output, allocating time for creative play, and marketing and selling. Book online at

Creative Cluster will also host an array of workshops and artist talks throughout Melbourne Design Week.
