This Wild Song / Launch / Forum / Exhibition

The Art Room is proud to support This Wild Song and host their event!

Last year we raised almost $14,000 from our Pozible campaign for TWS, and thanks to our supporters we’ve been able to have a new and sophisticated website built by Abby Storey from Little Lion Design!

The new website will house 150+ artist features and allow the audience to search for artists by what medium they use and what state they’re based in.  To celebrate the launch of the new website we’re having a party on Saturday June 24th!

/ FORUM
We’re hosting a forum with four TWS artists who will speak about their practice and take part in a Q&A.  The audience is invited to submit questions for the panel prior to the event.  The four artists participating in the forum are:

Terri Brooks www.terri-brooks-artist.com
Louise Blyton www.louiseblyton.com.au
Megan Evans www.meganevansartist.com
Michelle Hamer www.michellehamer.com

/ EXHIBITION
A special pop up exhibition is being held for the launch only.  We’re exhibiting works by 20 of the TWS artists including:

Kim ANDERSON / Louise BLYTON / Terri BROOKS / Celeste CHANDLER / Yvette COPPERSMITH / Filomena COPPOLA / Nanou DUPUIS / Megan EVANS / Erika GOFTON / Kate GOLDING / Michelle HAMER / Dena KAHAN / Justine KHAMARA / Emma LANGRIDGE / Tai SNAITH / Merryn TREVETHAN / Charlotte WATSON

This Wild Song – featuring Australian women artists

EmmadeClarioforThisWildSong_IlonaNelson

The Art Room’s Ilona Nelson is working on an exciting and important project called This Wild Song!  It is a series of conceptual portraits and interviews with Australian women visual artists who have a unique voice.

This is an ambitious project with over 70 artists involved and the number continues to grow.  It was created to support and promote Australian women artists, celebrate the wealth of talent in our country and promote equality in the arts.

Ilona has just launched a crowdfunding campaign to allow her to create another 20 portraits.  We’d love your help by sharing the campaign with your friends, making a contribution, or both!
