The Flower Lady exhibition is coming!

by Janine Combes | October 05, 2017

An exhibition to celebrate the 100th birthday of Nettie Combes (who also happens to be my mum) is coming up soon. I have been working hard to create a whole show of jewellery pieces about Nettie's life- historical, descriptive and flowers, flowers flowers.......Nettie has been growing and selling flowers for as long as anyone can remember, she is the flower lady of the Huon Valley and has many loyal customers.

I will be sharing some highlights over the coming weeks. It is on for 3 weekends: 22 October to 5 November at Art Farm, Birches Bay in southern Tasmania from 10 am to 4pm.  Come on down and see the show.

exhibition at The Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

On 22 June 2017 a group of four Tasmanian jewellers (CUSP) opened an exhibition titled Inscription and Place  at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery. The exhibition references the Baldwin Bequest and seeks to 're-interpret, re-frame and re-contextualise history and memory through the jewellery object'. 

The exhibition is in the Central Gallery, Level 2 and runs until October 22nd 2017.
