Over 12 days in the lead-up to Christmas, the NorthSite Art Market – Ceramics Edition will feature 19 one-of-a-kind, ceramic platters, alongside a curated selection of new work by leading ceramicists.

The NorthSite Art Market – Ceramic Edition is a fundraising activity to support NorthSite and local artists, with sales from all ceramic platters to go towards supporting local artists to present at NorthSite as part of the 30-year commemorative events in 2022.

NorthSite is proudly hosting a range of free-to-attend exhibitions, programs and events during the holiday season for the whole family to enjoy,” said NorthSite Director Ashleigh Campbell.

NorthSite Art Market, Ceramics Edition is a very special event that includes some of the region’s most esteemed artists – the artworks are being delivered this week and they are wonderful”.

Artists who have created unique platters for sale include Lenore Howard, Jenny Valmadre, Rose Rigley, Geoff Dixon, Andrea Huelin, Arone Meeks, Julie Poulsen, Ed Koumans, Robyn Baker, Napolean Oui, Roland Nancarrow.

Artists exhibiting in the fortnight-long market stall which also features a curated selection of artists currently working at Tropical North Queensland Institute of TAFE and Yarrabah Art Centre including Linda Gordon, Elaine Murray, Akiko Hanazaki, Kim Nolan, Kerrie Miller, Philomena Yeatman, Wayne Connolly, Gabrielle Cooney, Anne Jillett and Shireen Talibudeen.

“This initiative is the result of decades of fostered relationships with our wonderful art community.” said NorthSite Programs Coordinator Rosie Miller.

“There are so many beautiful ceramic items being created and coming in for audiences to buy directly from the artists in the market plus highly collectable platters by leading local artists.”

Lenore Howard founding member of KickArts Collective and former KickArts / NorthSite Board Member facilitated a ceramic platter-making fundraising initiative through informal workshops at TAFE Far North throughout 2019/20.

“The artist group can be defined by their history of longevity with KickArts, including some founding members who are still actively involved with NorthSite. A significant part of initiating the idea was to give something back to those artists, and in turn those artists to give back to the gallery, and what could be more exciting than to work collectively, and on a new medium most had never undertaken and to bring those artists together in what was primarily designed as a joyful interaction.” said Howard.

“This exciting project could not have been achieved without the support and generosity of Tropical North Queensland Institute of TAFE Ceramics Department and lecturing artists Jennifer Valmadre and Olivia Azzopardi.” said NorthSite Board Member Julie Poulsen.
