Event Details

Please join National Art – Part One exhibiting artists Sarah Goffman and Michael Snape for artist talks in the exhibition, introduced by NAS Gallery Curator Judith Blackall.

Sarah Goffman has exhibited across Australia and internationally in over 200 shows. After completing a Doctorate of Creative Arts in 2017, she held solo shows I am a 3D Printer, Wollongong Art Gallery 2017; Not My Place, KNULP, Sydney 2017; and I am not Gina Rinehart, 55 Sydenham Road 2018. Earlier notable solo exhibitions include Plastici and City of Plenty, Penrith Regional Gallery 2012 and 2015; Trashcan Dreams, Performance Space/ Carriageworks, Sydney 2010. Goffman has been included in group shows at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Artspace, Sydney College of the Arts and The Commercial, Sydney. In 2017 she won the Still National Still Life Award at Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery.

Sculpture is Michael Snape’s principal practice, which he complements with painting, music and writing. His sculptural work is predominantly in steel and is characterised by being highly variable, working either with text, abstraction or figuration. The consistent thread is the lack of a governing aspect and an openness to conceptual and material experimentation. He has completed more than 20 public and private sculptural commissions and has held numerous solo exhibitions at Watters Gallery, Gallery A, and Mori Gallery, Sydney; and Australian Galleries. Most recently, he has shown in the 2018 TarraWarra Biennial. Snape’s work is held in numerous public and private collections.
