The opening of ‘Thicket: works on paper by Carol Archer’ was on Friday 29 March, 2024  (Good Friday) from 2pm – 5pm at The Shop Gallery, 112 Glebe Point Road, Glebe, NSW.

The exhibition was launched by Liz Jeneid, an artist whose works on paper and textile works are held in major national collections. The MC for the event was Jillian Murchie.  Featured at the opening event was tree and garden centred poetry by prominent Australian poets Maggie Ball, Kit Kelen and Jean Kent.

‘Thicket’ ran from Thursday March 28 till Tuesday April 2, 11-6 daily, and I was there to chat with visitors about the work for most of that time. Here’s some pictures of the installation and the opening event. To see the online exhibition and read about the rationale for the show, click here.
