Our final artist in residence for 2017 was Leah Bullen. Leah has been working toward a Doctor of Philosophy, in practice-led research (Painting), at the School of Art and Design, Australian National University, Canberra, ACT.

While in residence she worked on some incredible monotypes. It was an absolute pleasure to have her in the studios and great to see such careful attention paid to such a unique printmaking technique. Many of her monotypes are large scale and take many hours and days to produce. 

On Wednesday the 11th of April Leah's PHD work will be featured alongside fellow artists Naomi Zower (Textiles) and Phil Page (Painting) at the ANU. The exhibition is part of the Visual Arts HDR Graduate Season program. Don't miss this great opportunity to see Leah's delicious works in the flesh. Details below:

What a gorgeous opening event we had last night! United Constructs consists of a new series of etchings and screen printed works by Canberra artist and designer Megan Hinton. Influenced by the Bauhaus design movement, Russian Constructivism and abstraction – Hinton has taken inspiration from the built environment, carefully dissecting each segment, line and shape to create newly constructed compositions of re purposed architectural forms.  It's a colourful, delicious body of work. Make sure you get into Megalo before it closes on 7 April. Find out more about Megan's work HERE.

*Please note that the gallery will be closed over the Easter long weekend 30 March-2 April


Today is International Women's Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. It's also a call to action for accelerating gender parity. 

Today Megalo reflects on our history and the incredible women who have used printmaking as a means to fight for the cause of equality. In particular Megalo would like to acknowledge the early pioneering women of print: Alison Alder; Gaynor Cardew; Deej Fabyc; eX de Medici; Annie Franklin; Sarah Laletin; Kathleen McCann; Franki Sparke; Annie Trevillian; Catrina Vignando; and so many more.

Welcome to Megalo Isobel Rayson! 
Isobel is the first Megalo Artist in residence this year and we're so pleased to have her in the studios.

Isobel is an emerging artist based in Canberra, Australia. Since graduating from the Sculpture workshop at the ANU School of Art and Design in 2014 she has exhibited in a number of group exhibitions, undertaken residencies and held several solo exhibitions. Isobel often works with woodcut substrates in her practice but is looking forward to exploring print in the Press Studio. She has already discovered the joy of embossing in the studio and is busily creating some impressive works. You can see more of Isobel's artwork at
