Australian Design Centre presents Treasures, a special 60th anniversary exhibition. Ten of Australia’s best craft artists have each contributed a work for this celebration.

These artists have been the subject of solo exhibitions in the Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft series that began in 2004. This series celebrates the work and practice of exceptional individuals who have demonstrated more than three decades of excellence in their chosen discipline.

The Living Treasures are Robert Baines, (the late) Les Blakebrough AM, Helen Britton, Lola Greeno, Marian Hosking, Jeffery Mincham AM, (the late) Klaus Moje, Nick Mount, Prue Venables, Liz Williamson.

Each 'Living Treasure', or their family, have generously nominated an artist who is producing outstanding work in their field of practice.

The nominated artists are Kristen Coelho, Laura Deakin, David Doyle, Blake Griffiths, Jeanette James, Lauren Joffe, Kerryn Levy, Lily Morin, Beth Sanderson, Kenji Uranishi.

Together these twenty artists demonstrate incredible skill, talent and artistry of material craft practice in ceramics, glass, textiles, metal and contemporary jewellery.
