We are please to announce our 2017 Artist in Residence
Marilou Chagnaud, ACT.
Marilou Chagnaud is a French artist and textile designer who has recently moved to Canberra. She mainly works with fiber materials, printing and folding, navigating between the disciplines of visual art and design.
Meet her at Namadgi National Park during AiR Open day on Saturday 29 April.
This program is generously supported by our 2017 research partner The Australian War Memorial and our ongoing partner ACT Parks and Conservation.
The call out for AiR 2018 applications will be soon published on our website.
Solo exhibition by mid-career, Canberran furniture maker Peter Bollington which looks to engage the user/viewer through function, colour, shape and form. The range will be primarily crafted from solid timber with accents of colour and various materials. The body of work will be a continuation of the multifunctional pieces previously visited, along with further complimentary pieces to the range.
The annual artist-in-residence program supports a local, national and international artist to each undertake a residence at Gudgenby Ready-Cut Cottage in the Namadgi National Park, and a two week research component within a national cultural institution in Canberra. The program facilitates access for the artist to national cultural, tertiary and research institutions and their collections, curators and researchers. A group exhibition of new work by each of the artists is held annually, and a catalogue produced about the program and disseminated internationally.
Presented in partnership with ACT Parks and Conservation Service and The National Arboretum Canberra. Supported by artsACT through their initiative, Arts Residencies ACT
