This week we spoke to art curator and writer extraordinaire,  Amber Creswell Bell. We were thrilled Amber drove all the way to Avalon from Thirroul to speak to us (she did visit the new gallery she is curating at Studio Direct Michael Reid Newport too!). We had the best chat about curating, writing books, fitting it all in with kids, choosing artists, advice on buying art, being an enthusiastic creative hustler and much more. 

Her first book, Clay, published by Thames & Hudson, released October 2016, showcases over 50 contemporary ceramic artisans from Australia and abroad.

Amber’s second book, A Painted Landscape, released in October 2018, profiles the diverse work of 50 of Australia’s landscape painters.

2021 will see the release of Amber’s monograph on artist Ken Done, and ‘Still Life’ – a compilation of Australian still-life painters, also published by Thames & Hudson.

Her editorial work has been published in many of Australia’s leading titles.

Thanks, Amber, really enjoyed meeting you and thanks for sharing the knowledge!
