Friends of the Drill Hall Gallery invite the wider School of Art and Design community to join us for an artist talk with Higher Degree Research Candidate Thomas O’Hara who has work on exhibit at SoA&D Gallery alongside Candidates Shanti Shea An and Marian Drew.

Thomas O’Hara began studying Gold and Silversmithing in 2010 at RMIT University, Melbourne and completed his Honours at ANU in 2014. After returning to his hometown of Canberra, Thomas commenced a PhD at the Australian National University School of Art and Design. With a trade background as an electrician, Thomas has developed a controlled, systematic way of constructing work which he combines with an interest in organic, free-formed patterns and objects found in the natural environment. His practice blurs the division between human construct and what is naturally formed to remind us of our interconnected relationship to the natural world.

This month we have collaborated with our colleagues at the School of Art and Design who are hosting this event in the SoA&D Gallery. Refreshments will be provided.

The exhibition runs from 11 July–25 July 2024
