The advisory team was formed to support the exhibition early on in the project by sharing their expertise as artists, educators and for their knowledge of paper clay and artists who are using paperclay today. I also chose each member of the team because they were early innovators in the use of paper clay as a primary media in their work.
Early members of the team were Jerry Bennett, Graham Hay and Rebecca Hutchinson. We organized a series of master workshops early on in the project to raise awareness of the exhibition. Each artist donated a portion of their workshop stipends to the exhibition and I was able to hire a curator, Peter Held. When Anjani Khanna and Angela Mellor joined us they brought new energy and an international perspective to the team.
They were particularly helpful to our curator, who, at the time, had limited knowledge of artists, on an international scale, who incorporated paperclay as a primary media in their work.
