Bread and Circusesis an art exhibition and residency project taking place at Chrissie Cotter Gallery in Sydney – 22 August to 4 September 2017. Collaborating artists Bernadette Boscacci and Sharon Kitching will present a multi-media installation of playful and visually engaging artworks, accompanied by a program of artist-led community workshops and activities in the gallery space.
Bread and Circuses explores the notions of play / interplay with humour and gravity, through assemblage, sculpture, paintings and drawings. Spurred on by the thrill of creation and love of communication, Bernadette and Sharon have been in discussion about this evolving body of work since 2015.
Following is a selection of works by Bernadette and links to both artists’ work.
Bernadette and Sharon are also involved in Golden Bee 1994 – 2017.
Evolving social media culture has created an interest in documenting experiences, and this exhibition will be supported by a detailed online presence (using Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) to share our creations and receive feedback and exposure for our work.

I’ve been busy printing merchandise / wearable items to sell, so that I can promote the bees and support the sustainability of this unique project.
If you’re looking for Christmas gifts or just want to support the golden bee project, then check out these hand-printed, limited edition items for $30 AUD each + $10 postage and handling (up to 4 items per package), to anywhere in Australia.
And, if you buy 4 or more items, I will sell them at their old price of $25 ea.
