CAM Off-Site: An Agri-Cultures Conversation
Sunday 11 September 4pm
A conversation and collective digestion on the question of culture. Presented at Harcourt Organic Farming Co-op, please join Terrace Projection: Agri-Cultures artist Zoe Scoglio in conversation with members of the extended Gung Hoe Growers and HOFC family this Sunday 11 September.

Featuring Mel Willard, Gung Hoe Growers Co-Founder; Ira Barker, Gunditjmara Barkindji Person and Murnong Mammas Member; and Duang Tengtrirat, Local Cook, Mindful Cooking Teacher and Food Radical.

This off-site conversation will question, what becomes possible if thinking about the cultures within our guts, within the soil and within our social sphere, as one continuum? How can we learn from and support regenerative and community supported agricultural initiatives, to create cultures that nourish in this time and place?

As part of this in conversation event, Gung Hoe Growers vegetation will be arranged and ready to eat for attendees. This event is supported by the RISE Fund – an Australian Government initiative. View more here.

Artist Talk: Mark Dober
Saturday 17 September 2pm
Join artist Mark Dober for a floor talk at CAM, discussing his Orbit exhibition The Edge of Town in the Sinclair Gallery on Saturday 17 September. Mark’s exhibition features works made specifically for this show at the edge of Castlemaine and its surrounds.

Light and space, the near and the far, the bucolic and the strange, make their appearance in ways which convey contrasting and ambiguous moods. Above all, Mark's work conveys a direct and lively response to landscape, one grounded in observation. This is the second exhibition in CAM's Orbit Program; a series of exhibitions showcasing artists who live and work in Central Victoria.

No RSVP required, all welcome. This event is supported by The Besen Family Foundation and Mount Alexander Shire Council Events Grants Program.

Paddock to Paper Drawing Workshop
Friday 23 September 4pm
To coincide with our current Terrace Projection: Agri-Cultures by Zoe Scoglio, we are delighted to present Paddock to Paper on Friday 23 September.

Part drawing workshop, part feast, Paddock to Paper is open to people of any age and technical ability to draw and experiment in this guided session with local artist and CAM staff member Anna Schwann. Join us at the gallery for a (sort of) still life drawing workshop, that you can eat at the end!

Anna Schwann works in expanded sculptural practice that investigates the encounter between art and audience; facilitating conversation using sensory engaging tactics as means of connection.

Taking inspiration from the farming 'industry', social economies, and the ethos of Gung Hoe Growers, this drawing workshop invites you to explore lateral thinking around process and outcome, the movement of time, and figuring out how to work with your neighbours.

Tickets available online. Bookings essential.
