Sydney jeweller and artist Emma Fielden will shortly begin a six-week residency at the Penrith Regional Gallery as part of their Gravity and Wonder exhibition program.

Emma is one of three artists selected, each being paired with a scientist to create new work, which will then be exhibited for a further six weeks.  Emma will collaborate with scientist Andrew O’Brien, a radio astronomer and PhD candidate at the University of Western Sydney whose work focuses on galaxy clusters and dark matter.
