In July 2012 Suzanne Archer, Hanna Kay and Sarah Tomasetti were invited to exhibit their artworks in Beijing. They travelled to China for the opening of the exhibition, and used the opportunity to visit other regions, such as Xian and Guilin. The trip made a strong impression; so much so that the initial inspiration and strong desire to create artworks has been consolidated into their plans for an exhibition that will convey their journey. The artworks, under the title - Three Women Went to China..., are scheduled to be exhibited in 2015 in Muswellbrook Regional Art Gallery, and from there to tour in Australia and possibly China.
Three Women Went to China...(part 1) is a conversation between the three artists, that took place in January 2013. The conversation discusses their expectations and actual experiences in the regions that they travelled, intersected by photographs they took while on the road. Before commencing work for the exhibition each of the artists plans to return to China to investigate areas relevant to their artworks.
Three Women Went to China...(part 2) will document the process of making the artworks for the exhibition.
