No one can deny the beauty of an egg, This elemental form has been with humankind forever and attained a potent symbolic status across cultures. Representing potential yet to be realized, an ostrich egg presents a perfect blank slate upon which to project an artistic vision. And this is what 40 Gippsland artists have done.
The brainchild of Kerry Spokes and Susan Purdy from Gecko Studio Gallery, this unique exhibition opens on April 17th in Fish Creek, the creative hub of South Gippsland.
A handpicked collective of quality artists were asked to respond to the egg in whatever way they wished and the results are an extraordinary array of creative talents.
