Radical Localism is an atmospheric exhibition which surveys Dr Elizabeth Shaw’s jewellery practice, spanning several decades and encompassing much of the history of sustainable jewellery practice in Queensland. It explores the role of home, place, family, and nurture in fostering talent at home and beyond.

Legacy continues this journey of fostering beyond with a small collection of works by Liz's past students who trained under her at the Fine Art Course, Jewellery and Small Objects, at Griffith University.

On December 9 there is an opportunity to join Dr Elizabeth Shaw for an interesting tour and talk of Radical Localism, a survey exhibition of works from the 1990's to present. Complimentary tea and coffee provided. Registrations essential.
