Congratulations to our wonderful sponsor LANGRIDGE ARTIST COLOURS on their new website and upcoming exhibition CHROMATOPIA – a history of colour.
Welcome to Chromatopia, an exhibition on the history of colour.
Spanning thousands of of years, travel through the story of pigments and their incredible journeys from across the globe.
Tales of dragons & beetles, alchemy & poisons, slaves & pirates, from the ancient world to the present come alive in this exhibition on colour’s creation.
This voyage of discovery features pigments made from deadly metals, poisonous minerals, bodily waste, crushed insects and predatory sea snails. Colours dug simply from the ground beneath us, others so expensive that only kings and popes could afford them.
Within the exhibition, see the living process of historical colour manufacture in action.
Also featured is the new world of strange modern colours that only reveal themselves when touched, are invisible in sunlight or shine in the dark.
Opening 6:30pm on the 31st of May and on display from the 1st to the 18th of June 2017.

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!
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:
