Cabinets of Curiosity - Opening Invitation

Cabinets of curiosity first originated in the 16th century and were used to display objects of puzzlement and awe collected by wealthy travellers and noblemen.

Christine Lovitt's exhibition "Cabinets of Curiosity" revisits this concept and comprises a series of customised wooden cabinets filled with collections of found objects and vintage paper shapes.

Christine is a local artist who has been working in the medium of vintage paper and book sculpture for the past two years.  This is her first exhibition.
