Michael Eather has been making his art for over 30 years now and we once shared the same dealer – Michael Milburn so we have been mates since then. His own gallery – Fireworks Gallery shows a miriad of indigenous and non-indigenous artists side by side with a spread of senior to emerging artists from all over Australia.
We are always excited when a piece goes to a good place, person or collection, in this case it goes to all three and what’s more Michael ‘gets it’ . . . these ‘Tinsmithed objects” were covered in Inside-Outside magazine at the time of the first Artisan show, for those new readers here are the two downloadable pages – one – two. I’ll post a smaller pic of page two , below.
