Artist in Residence at Eramboo Artist Environment in Terrey Hills, Gloria Florez will hold a special exhibition from 14 to 23 June to showcase work produced during her six- month residency there.
The exhibition Forest Ambassadors, sponsored by Northern Beaches Council, will highlight her passion for preserving the natural environment, demonstrated through her prints and hand-made paper techniques, designed to draw attention to the endangered Pittwater Spotted Gum Forest.
It will also feature the artistic fruits of her workshops with children from the Cromer Public School after-school care program, in collaboration with local writer Zena Shapter and media artist Alyson Bell.
Nestled on the edge of the Ku-ring-gai National Park, Eramboo has been a haven for creativity for decades. This residency provides a peaceful sanctuary for artists in the middle of the bush, using the natural surroundings as inspiration.
At the end of their residency, artists get to present their work in a public space, prominent location, or an exhibition space.
Gloria Florez is the 2019 Eramboo Artist in Residence. Her residency finishes at the end of June.
Northern Beaches Council and Eramboo Artist Environment support a six-month residency that provides free non-residential studio space at Eramboo in Terrey Hills, with the bonus of tapping into the professional development support and networks Eramboo provides, plus a $2000 allowance for materials.
