During the month of October 2017, the Singapore Art Museum will be presenting artworks inspired by the theme of community, and created by different communities. Educational workshops are designed and conducted by artist Nicola Anthony, who is exhibiting in Gallery 1.11 and the artist-mentor to the female inmates participating in the Yellow Ribbon Community Art Exhibition 2017.

All materials will be provided. Each participant will take home their own terrarium.

Create patterns, leaves and flowers with artist inks to make your own wishing tree artwork, and imbue it with your own stories, wishes and dreams.
In this body of artwork Nicola Anthony focuses on individuals who have a particularly complex relationship with time: giving a glimpse into the complexity of the cycle of human lives, our experience of life passing, and memories morphing.
Nicola Anthony and Marc Nair will share about the genesis of the artworks showcased in “Scents of Singapore”. They will explain how they collaborated to incorporate the poetry of Marc in Nicola’s artworks and to talk about the history of Kampong Glam neighborhood. With this talk the audience will be embarked on a poetic journey through space and time.
