Everyone has a good set of china or at least a favourite cup with a story attached; be it a priceless heirloom or a workplace mug left behind by a colleague. ‘The Good Cups’ showcases and celebrates the favourite cups of the Friday Painters at Camberwell Community Centre.

Originating as an initiative of teacher Linda Judge, the group has been meeting to paint together for more than 20 years. The exhibition brings together both painting and storytelling, highlighting unrepresented artists from Boroondara who use still life painting and writing to access memory and personal narratives.

‘The Good Cups’ is a Community Exhibition on display at Town Hall Gallery from Tuesday 29 September to Sunday 8 November 2020. Featuring artists Cath Allen, Joy Barnett, Suzanne Bitmead, Helen Brauns, Margot Campbell, Christie Curatolo, Bev Gosbell, Melanie Jacobsen, Sue James, Julie Kelcey, Catherine Linsdell-Edwards, Brian Lynch, Cassandra Mastoris, Kate Morton, Jill Nicol, Martin Norvick, Margaret Poiesz, Cass Roche and Maria Urdampilleta.
