Shiro – Artist Talk

Visual Artist, Dr. Shiromali Ekanayake – “Shiro” – was the 2023 Call to Create winner, and her work features in a self-titled solo exhibition for the 2024 Shepparton Festival. We invite you to this celebration and artist talk amongst the artworks where Shiro will strip back some of the layers of her work and allow the audience to learn more while enjoying a welcoming space and some light refreshments.

As a believer in the power of art as a therapeutic refuge, Shiro invites you to immerse yourself in her self-titled exhibition, curated by Festival Director Kristen Retallick and quite deliberately placed at GV Hospice, an organisation that explores creative ways to support those at a difficult time of their and their loved ones’ lives. Shiro is a General Practitioner in Shepparton, and her paintings and collages present art as care, as a vessel for meditation, and as an escape into a realm of uplifting emotions.
