St Kilda artist and Ian Potter Cultural trust grantee, Lisa Barmby has received finalist status in this year’s ANL Maritime Art Prize and Exhibition, themed upon ‘the relationship between humanity and the sea,’ for her artwork entitled: ‘I know where I’m going’.

After completing a residency at La Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice, researching and meeting with the gondola artisans of El Felze Associazions, Bamby has exhibited several group and solo exhibitions before releasing her current piece, ‘I know where I’m going,’ which references historical Venice in contemporary culture – theatrical daily life, solemn ceremonies, costumes, courtesans, fascination with exotic animals, excesses oddities – and Venetians unique relationship to the sea.

Exhibition Curator Beth Humphries said about the exhibition: “[these] are works providing a nostalgic sense of tranquillity and those that remind us of the inherent violence and unpredictability of the sea – an element of life that cannot be mastered”.

The Exhibition is held at:

717 Flinders Street, Docklands, Melbourne

From October 5th – 31st, Wednesday – Sunday, 12noon – 7pm.

Entry is by gold coin donation and all guests are invited to vote for their favourite artwork in the PB Towage People’s Choice Award.
