This Wild Song – featuring Australian women artists

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!
