Artist In Residence - The Gorman House Project Space

I have been awarded an Artist Residency at Gorman House Arts Centre in Canberra, as part of The Project Space program.

The Project Space is an exciting new short-term residency program at Gorman Arts Centres – it’s a creative intervention with a DIY spirit. Gorman Arts Centre’s former Currong Theatre wing is temporarily vacant until capital upgrades begin at the centre in late 2014. The Project Space invites 16 writers, visual artists and other creative practitioners to occupy the Currong wing for 8 weeks as artists-in-residents. Throughout August and September 2014, this group of artists will make The Project Space their own in a self-directed residency encouraging experimentation and  collaboration.

I will be setting up a studio on location at Gorman House and inviting people to sit (or stand) for a portrait as part of my residency program. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come to my corner of The Project Space from 10am-1pm on the following dates to have their portrait made.  

Saturday 23 August

Saturday 30 August

Saturday 6 September

Saturday 27 September    

Monday 29 September

Everyone participating in the project will receive a digital file of their portrait at the end of the project.
