Griffith Easter Party 2017



    Kerri Weymouth: Remnant

    This exhibition is a tribute to influential fashion designers Ross Weymouth and John Claringbold by artist Kerri Weymouth.  Kerri worked and lived with Ross & John in Melbourne in the 1980's. Kerri has been inspired by the designer’s use of colour, style, design, attention to detail, and humour. Both John & Ross have been a major influence on Kerri’s creativity and this exhibition will play on these influences and remnants of their careers Kerri will be working with Griffith Regional Art Gallery’s Couture Collection which chronicles the careers both Ross & John.
