Hi everyone! As some of you know I work behind the scenes looking after The Art Room’s newsletters and social media. I’m taking a break to focus on my personal project This Wild Song, a series of photographic portraits and interviews with Australian women artists.
I’ll be leaving you in the capable hands of artists Merryn Trevethan and Abby Storey! Many of you have previously met Merryn as she regularly hosts workshops with us. She is currently living in Singapore and regularly exhibiting in Singapore and Australia.
Abby is a photographic artist from New Zealand and is now based in Melbourne. She’s a fantastic addition to the team and brings a wealth of knowledge from her personal arts practice and extensive experience working in galleries.
A warm welcome to Abby and Merryn, and I’ll see you around The Art Room soon!
Thanks to YOU we not only met our Pozible target but smashed it! You are helping turn this beautiful shell of a building into a fantastic studio for you, our wonderful students! Plus we’ll be hosting exhibitions and live performances!
A little note from our Director:
WOW what can I say! I am totally overwhelmed and so incredibly touched by the support that has been shown to The Art Room. I can’t thank you all enough for not just your pledges but your kind words of support and encouragement, offers of help and donations to our studio. I am really humbled and touched. I promise to make the best studio I can for you all to come and be inspired in, to be challenged and to learn in. It is YOUR studio and I love that we are creating an incredible community of support and friendship. Thank you all soooooo much.
