The program Artists and Curators on Arts Thursday 22 September with me, Maisy Stapleton, focussed on an exhibition at the Peacock Gallery in Auburn.

I spoke to Glenn Barkley, who curated the exhibition Objects in Space: Artists in the Garden. This exhibition is set both in the Gallery and the adjacent Auburn Botanical Gardens which include a Japanese Garden.

I asked Glenn about the exhibition and also took the opportunity to speak to Glenn about himself; his role as a Curator and his multifaceted activities as artist-potter, gardener and creative producer and manager.

Listen to the interview with Glenn here:
