‘Building Sites Taking Shape‘ is about the transformation of well known Maitland public buildings which are perceived in a very specific way having only utilitarian purposes. The buildings are most likely to be the last place where art may be expected to be created or placed on show to be viewed.

Site Specific Installation
Maitland Regional Art Gallery
The artists and sites include, Mini Graff at the Maitland Regional Art Gallery, Fiona Davies (Textiles and Mixed Media) Maitland Hospital, Michelle Maartinesz (Digital Media) Reading Cinema and Christine McMillian (Found Objects/Mixed Media) Maitland Town Hall. Their artworks will challenge any preconceived views of what is art.
The works of art were in situ for four weeks but the creation will be part of the experience in which the public was able to partake in watching the transformation take shape.
Special thanks to Christine McMillian.
