DEREK O'CONNOR - ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

This month we're pleased to welcome Canberra based artist Derek O'Connor as artist-in-residence.  Derek will be working across studios to explore how he can transfer and manipulate historical imagery to be re-interpreted or re-energised through different print mediums. We're fascinated to see how much his experiences here impact his work exploring World War II photography. Welcome Derek!

 

HANNAH GASON - ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

A warm Megalo welcome to Canberra-based glass artist Hannah Gason who has just commenced her 2017 residency with us this week. Hannah graduated from the Australian National University (ANU) School of Art in 2015 and is already a prolific practitioner. We're big fans of her fabulous glass works (check out her website here!) so we can't wait to see what happens for her in our studios.... we'll keep you posted!

BADU ARTS CENTRE - ARTISTS VISIT

We were thrilled to have some of the artists of the BADU ARTS CENTRE visiting this week, all the way from the Torres Strait.
The artists took a tour of our studios and spent some time in the press studios undertaking some relief printing.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Michael Nona, Matilda Nona Malujewel, Laurie Nona and Aiona Tala Gaidan for the day.
Thanks to Justin Bishop from KickArts and the Parliament House Art team for arranging the visit.
