Artvark: Cheryl Millard Exhibition Launch
Time & Location
About The Event
ARTVARK is a night celebrating our favourite local artists, painters, illustrators, photographers and designers, by hosting an exhibition of their works on the walls of The Aardvark for a whole month.
Each month we'll be throwing a party to launch the exhibition, featuring live performances by local bands hand-picked by the featured artist!
Our artist for October is CHERYL MILLARD, who's curated a sensational lineup ft. MATERIAL WORLD ORCHESTRA, SEGUE, LANA ROTHNIE & RUINER.
Growing up in the suburbia of the Hills surrounding Perth, Cheryl’s practice is both deeply inward/psychological and outward/community-driven. Her art practice is an expression of her own private thoughts, feelings and memories of a woman with very diverse life experiences. It is also deeply underpinned by a sense of community, whereby creating soft, kind and gentle collaborative creative spaces is just as important as the end product.
A social-work and art-therapy background underpins her practice as creative expression as a necessity for mental wellbeing and trauma catharsis. Whilst often exploring dense concepts and memories, she plays with delicate colours and mediums, textures and shapes, signs and symbols, and creates unique little worlds that are an honest reflection of her unique look on life.
Recently, Cheryl has begun exploring ideas of tiny floating islands, isolation, connection, depth and patterns. This work will be continued with a series of workshops at Paper Mountain in December. Get behind your local art scene - get behind ARTVARK!
