Ruth Downes: Lunch for the Trades, in the Art Factory
Lunch for the Trades is a quirky look at lunch for people in the trades and includes ‘Micro Fiche ‘n’ Chips for the Computer Technician’ and ‘Tongue and Salad Sandwich for Shoemakers.’ Downes is known for her quirky artwork; having won the People’s Choice in the National Sculpture Prize at the National Gallery of Australia in 2001 with Tea Party in the Mayoral Garden, a fun look at the notion of ‘taking tea.’
