Stonehouse / Glasshouse Residency
The Cook and Her Driver
Karen Black and Virginia Leonard

Opening | Thursday 30 January, 6-8pm
Exhibition Dates | 31 January - 29 February 2020

Please join us for the first exhibition at Gertrude Glasshouse in 2020, being the third exhibition outcome of the Stonehouse / Glasshouse Residency, an invitational international residency opportunity in Chenaud, located in the south west of France. Following their 6-week residency at Stonehouse in the rural area of Chenaud in mid-2019, Melbourne-based artist Karen Black and Auckland-based artist Virginia Leonard, will present new and recent works produced in or responding to the residency and the context of the historic farmhouse and the region.

Founded and generously supported by Gertrude Patrons Michael Schwarz and David Clouston and Antje Géczy in 2017, the Stonehouse / Glasshouse partnership is an invitational annual opportunity for two artists from Australia and New Zealand to undertake a 6-week residency in France, and thereafter present an exhibition at Glasshouse, followed by the production of a publication on their work and practices.
