Welcome to another year of friends, good conversation, and new and familiar faces at the Drill Hall Gallery.

Please join us for drinks and a talk by local emerging artist Madeline Cardone.

Madeline Cardone (b. 1996 Canberra) lives and works on Ngunnawal and Ngambri country. Her practice is predominantly in glass, but she also engages with other mediums such as ceramic, drawing, sculpture and performance. Her current work draws on architectural theory and phenomenology, with a particular interest in shadow, light, space and the body. Her drawings and glass objects explore a personal experience of architectural space, through subtle and refined forms.

Madeline gained her education in Visual Arts and Art History/Curatorship at the ANU School of Art and Design in Canberra. She was the recipient of the Bassett Downs Honours Scholarship in Glass (2021) and a recipient of the EASS Craft ACT Craft and Design Emerging Contemporaries National Exhibition Award (2017). She has been a finalist in several national exhibitions, including the National Emerging Art Glass Prize, Wagga Wagga (2018), Fuse Glass Prize, JamFactory, Adelaide (2018) and Hindmarsh Prize, Canberra Glassworks (2018). She has also exhibited internationally in Symbiosis: China and Australia Edge Glass Art Student Exhibition at the China Academy of Art (CAA), Hangzhou, China (2017), and Emerge 2018, Bullseye Projects, Portland, Oregon (2018).
