CRAFT ACT’s new online exhibition “Wayfaring”, which went online at noon today (April 2) features work by four artists, Bella Dower, Sara Lindsay, Sarah Stubbs and Zoë Veness, who have created carefully crafted jewellery and objects about walked journeys, memory and place. With social distancing measures firmly in place, Craft ACT has now taken exhibitions online to a virtual audience via craftact.org.au and social media platforms. Most works are available for purchase, and artist interviews and video tours, they say, will simulate the gallery experience. Visit craftact.org.au/blogs/current-exhibitions/wayfaring
