I'm pleased to announce that I have been granted a Regional Arts Development Fund grant to assist with staging the Ipswich Emerging Artists Solo Series at the SWICH Contemporary Art Space. This series provides the opportunity for 6 emerging contemporary artists based in Ipswich to receive mentoring in creating a new series of work, culminating in a 2 week solo exhibition for each artist. As a major part of this program I will mentor the artists to guide them through the process of creating, presenting and promoting a new body of work.

These 6 exhibitions will allow access by the wider community to a diverse selection of emerging artists work which in turn affects a greater understanding of the role of contemporary art in our community and how art can change our perceptions of ourselves and our local environment.

After a two month selection process the final artists selected are:

Allan Saunderson - Painting/graphic design
Ben Leadbetter - Art photography
John Grassi - Painting
Donna Dobbs - Millinery/sculpture
Annamaria Mays - Mixed media
Kylie Stevens - Mixed media

Congratulations to all the successful artists! I look forward to working with all of the artists and staging the exhibitions beginning in October 2011 and concluding in May 2012. Visit our Art Gallery Schedule page to stay updated on all of our upcoming exhibitions.
