OCTOBER 2014

  It's been a busy time in the studio for students and teachers with lots of new students in all our classes, and lots of fabulous paintings being produced. There are still limited places available in our Monday morning and Tuesday evening classes.

A big congratulations to Monday night painter Jeremy Drake who last month won the Victoria University Arts Prize with his painting Tree Frog. Jeremy has been painting with us for several years and is making some beautiful work. Well done Jeremy! The Monday night painters recently had Melbourne artist Shane Jones as guest teacher, a former jockey, Shane currently has an exhibition at Charles Nodrum Gallery in Richmond, and you can follow his blog here. The Tuesday morning painters enjoyed a class with Joanna Logue who generously shared lots of tips and techniques despite her busy schedule preparing for a show at Orange Regional Gallery in NSW and in Singapore. Both our regular teachers have also recently held solo exhibitions, Adriane Strampp at King St Gallery in Sydney, and Terri Brooks at Flinders Lane Gallery in Melbourne. Terri also has work in the touring exhibition Direction Now, currently on at Town Hall Gallery in Hawthorn. Former Monday night painter Natalie Anderson is about to have a solo exhibition at Boom Gallery in Geelong, exhibition details below. Congratulations Nat! Boom
