Megalo member Annika Romeyn has been working incredibly hard over the last few months on a series of stunning monotypes. She has created each of these large panels in the studios which then sit together to make up complete works. You can see these fantastic works on show at Annika's upcoming solo exhibition 'Precipice' at ANCA from Oct 4-22. The exhibition opening will be held at 6pm on the 4th October at ANCA Gallery in Dickson ACT. There will also be a musical response to the exhibition composed and performed by Holly Downes + Chris Stone at 2pm on Saturday 21 October, also at ANCA Dickson.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN!!!!
It's that time of year again and we're calling for applications to our Annual residency program. In 2018 there will be three ACT based places, two national and one international place. The selected artists receive a stipend, accommodation (international and national) and studio access to Megalo’s comprehensive, professional printmaking facilities.
The Megalo residency program aims to support the making of new work that meets the program objectives of excellence and innovation in printmaking. Applications close on 31 October 2017 and you can find all the detailed information on the 2018 program here
This month we're pleased to welcome Canberra based artist Derek O'Connor as artist-in-residence. Derek will be working across studios to explore how he can transfer and manipulate historical imagery to be re-interpreted or re-energised through different print mediums. We're fascinated to see how much his experiences here impact his work exploring World War II photography. Welcome Derek!
A warm Megalo welcome to Canberra-based glass artist Hannah Gason who has just commenced her 2017 residency with us this week. Hannah graduated from the Australian National University (ANU) School of Art in 2015 and is already a prolific practitioner. We're big fans of her fabulous glass works (check out her website here!) so we can't wait to see what happens for her in our studios.... we'll keep you posted!
We were thrilled to have some of the artists of the BADU ARTS CENTRE visiting this week, all the way from the Torres Strait.
The artists took a tour of our studios and spent some time in the press studios undertaking some relief printing.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Michael Nona, Matilda Nona Malujewel, Laurie Nona and Aiona Tala Gaidan for the day.
Thanks to Justin Bishop from KickArts and the Parliament House Art team for arranging the visit.
