We Rise

Shelley Engwirda


Mackay artist Shelley Engwirda examines the success and failures of the Women’s Movement in We Rise. Drawing on her experience as a new grandmother, Engwirda explores the way female artists have been regarded historically through her multidisciplinary practice. The artist’s large scale patchwork quilts alongside glass work respond to what she considers major moments in the Women’s Movement from the 1970s-present.
