tête-à-tête is a series of online conversations with artists and friends of The Art Room!
Join us to hear more about these artist’s practices and you’re welcome to submit questions to us prior to the session or in the chat on the call. Our next sessions are:
Fran O’Neill was born in Wangaratta, Australia, and currently lives and works between Australia and Brooklyn, New York. Fran’s work has been included in various group shows throughout the USA and in Australia. She has recently taught at the New York Studio School, Arts Students League and Pratt Institute. Her work resides in private collections in the USA, Australia and UK, and in the permanent collection of MOCA Jacksonville, FL.
We’re very lucky to have Fran teaching a variety of classes with us, including a Group Critique on July 4th.
Sharon Billinge is a Sydney based artist with a multi-disciplinary practice concerned with people and relationships. Since 2017 Sharon has been coordinating projects that use mural painting as a way to build community. Each work is site specific and is made in collaboration with the people surrounding the mural site. Some show the history of a site or convey stories and relationships, others address particular issues Sharon believes in. These projects involve extended periods of research as well as building relationships with various groups. Sometimes community volunteers also help her paint the walls.
We’ll be chatting to Sharon about public art, murals and creating community. Register your seat to receive the call link!
