The Open Day is a fantastic opportunity for you to meet our staff, visit our extensive studio and workshop facilities, and find out about our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees.
You can also find out about the new Bachelor of Visual Arts, a degree that will prepare you to succeed as a practising artist or in a range of creative careers, and become an expert in developing artistic and creative responses to the big issues driving contemporary society.
Taught by practising artists, this hands-on degree will give you skills in a range of media and the opportunity to broaden your education through electives on offer across the university.
You can specialise in painting, photomedia, printmedia, screen arts, sculpture, jewellery and object, all underpinned by vigorous theory and critical studies. And with a unique part-time pathway, studying visual arts is now even more possible.
All day events at the Open Day include the Portfolio Development Drop-In Centre, the Camouflage Cultures exhibition, tours of the campus, film screenings, talks about the new Bachelor of Visual Arts, parents’ seminars, demonstrations, workshops, entertainment, plus much more…

Wild Valley Art Park i
Blue Mountains Eco Arts Village
Drawing Festival & Sketchbook Trail to host Australia’s first
Draw on the Mountain 20 – 29 September 2013

A $5000 Acquisitive Art Award – an inaugural Art Festival featuring Workshops, Talks, Exhibitions, Events &
Prize Winning Drawing Competition

Wild Valley Art Park in the Blue Mountains will launch a unique creative art festival in
September 2013 – Australia’s first Drawing Festival and Sketchbook Drawing Trail.

The Drawing Trail Festival Workshops include:

Masterclass – Distorted Point of View with David Fairbairn teaching participants to look beneath the
surface and structures inside our faces and bodies, such as veins, skeletons and muscles, resulting in dynamic works full of linear lines and structure.

On Site – Drawing & Painting with award winning and renowned artist Lucy Culliton where
participants will have individual tuition at Norman Lindsay’s iconic National trust property and gardens.

Masterclass – Plant, Paper, Print with Liz Powell using the natural surrounding of Wild Valley to
source plants and materials to explore and create with. Students will incorporate these into making paper and creating their own prints on the printing press.

Workshop for Adults & Children – Rainforest Sketching with tutor Michael Herron includes a ride  on the new Scenic Railway plus a tour of the rainforest with sketchbooks in hand.
Workshop – Fantastic Flowers with Suzanne Archer takes participants on a journey from small studies of exotic flowers and other plant material to the development of more creative, imaginative
larger drawings using compositions arranged from your original observations.

Classes Beginners to Advanced – A Stroke of Perfection with Michiyo Miwa.  Learn the graceful contemplative form of Japanese ink painting known as sumi-e, learning to control brush strokes with
simplicity and harmony.

COSTS The Draw on the Mountain Sketchbook Trail Competition $45 per adult & Children under 16 $20 – this
includes a sketchbook and map for self-guided Mountain destinations as part of the art trail.  Each participant will have work shown in the competition exhibition.

——————————————-

Due to loss of habitat in the Macquarie Marshes of northern NSW, Sydney city dwellers are now living with large numbers of White Ibises. The White Ibis  (Threskiornis moluccus) is an indigenous Australian bird. To some people, the White Ibis symbolises the sacred Ibis worshiped by the Egyptians or the vast Australian land,  to others it is an irritating nuisance. Alternate colloquial names include “Bin Chicken”, “Dump Chook” or “Tip Turkey”, from its habit of rummaging in garbage. It was known as Mardungurra among the Yindjibarndi people of the central and western Pilbara.
We are looking for artworks that explore inner city living with the white Ibis…the pros and cons.
We are after works that show your point of view…whather  it is raising awareness of indiginous birds, evolution & extinction, or having them nick your child’s sandwich.

IN STUDIO with Lisa Madigan


lisa

1) Who is Lisa Madigan?

Beauty seeker, aesthetic hunter, salt shaker, art maker.

 studio lisa

2) Explain your current body of work?

I recently spent a month in New York & this new collection is absolutely a reflection of that experience. As with all of my work KALEIDOSCOPE treads the lines & explores the nuances between being grounded in earthly grits & depth & strength & a lighter, softer, more ethereal air.
Spurred by particular fractures of light, dirty streets, punchy graffiti & vibrant colours melding with stormy spring skies & that skyscraper grey. The works embark on an almost documentarian journey of my collected moments, memories & sensations, one slipping into another, slipping into another, slipping into another. Not bound by form, but threaded with a common, underlying narrative.
Substance & sensation. Light & dark. Elusive & punchy. Delicate & powerful. Frivolous & meaningful. Raw & polished. Beautiful.

LISA_MADIGAN_for_the_design_hunter_1

3) If you can pick one artist as an inspiration, who would it be and why?

Turner. He makes my heart soar, he surprises me, beguiles me & touches me with his luminosity, vision & sheer brilliance.

LISA_MADIGAN_studio_1_S

4) With your own art/art practice, where would you like to be in 10 years?

Deep & fervent in my practice as a known professional.
Pushing my own boundaries & immersed in the limitless adventures of creation & expression & connection.

5) How are you finding the current art market?

My focus is on cultivating my practice & creating the best possible works I can. I believe if you’re doing what you’re meant to be doing with authenticity, tenacity, complete dedication & grace, things eventually will fall into place. If the work shines, it shines, regardless of what the market says, or what state the market is in. There has been an incredible buzz around the release of this new collection & I’m humbled & delighted with the response. I like to take it piece by piece & person by person. Not everyone will swoon for your work, but those who do, you hope it’s a somewhat transformative experience & you also hope there’s longevity to it. It can be a slow burn, things ebb & flow, but the more I move through my career, the more I own where I am, the more I connect, it’s a privilege.

MADIGAN_Lisa_SUBLIMATION_3_s

6) Name four things, that you cannot do without in your studio?

It’s a very raw & beautiful place for me & I’m more than happy with my bare essentials of fresh linen, an ample supply of paint, my knives & even just a single brush. My pieces move around a lot when I work, from the floor to the wall, so I need to have the space quite clear for a bit of room to manoeuvre, I also like it quite clear for my head space, it’s only ever what I’m currently working on that I like to be seeing when I’m in there. The studio itself certainly needs to be sitting just so, there’s a definite art of placement & harmony & light in my organised mess.

7) Is social media a help or a hinder for the arts and what are you thoughts?

I absolutely believe in embracing new technologies for communication & there is such a vibrant, appreciative & diverse community to connect with in the social media stratosphere. It is such a wonderful opportunity to be able to connect in a beautifully immediate way with your audience, give them glimpses into the process & greater insights into the work. Love it.
I’ve found social media invaluable & have made some truly amazing, genuine connections.
It makes the world a smaller place, we are all connected & at the same time it makes the world a broader place & showcases our great diversity. Nothing can ever beat standing face to face with a work, ever, but I believe social media is allowing people a greater freedom of choice for which works they’d like to stand in front of & the freedom to find the Art that truly connects with them.

studio

8) What was the funniest thing you’ve heard someone say about your own work?

“When I saw your portraiture, I have to admit, I put you in a different category.” I think there are plenty who aren’t compelled to admire works that aren’t immediately obvious & who can only appreciate it once they know you can “actually paint”. Not so sure that’s funny though.

9) What is next on the agenda?

There’s always plenty ripping at my chest eager to get out & there are some very exciting things on the horizon. I always say it’s a little like opening Pandora’s box, but stay tuned.

10) What is your advise to children who want to be artists?

I would say for them to take a moment, a good long moment & be very, very quiet & listen to their inner voice to find out what it says. If their heart is calling them as an artist & if that voice never waivers, even through the dark days, then they need to express that & no matter what comes, they need to be true to who they are. If you are an artist, you don’t have a choice in the matter, so follow that road with courage, tenacity & grace. I had teachers try to make me change the way I held my pencil, to sit down instead of stand when I painted in class, one threw out an entire series of my paintings because I didn’t paint the way she wanted me to. In that way I’ve grown to become somewhat of a gentle rebel, if anything it strengthened my resolve rather than dismissed it.
No one can tell you the direction of your work but yourself, trust that process, trust your self.

Drawing Festival, Workshops & Sketchbook Trail + $5000 Acquisitive Art Award

‘Draw on the Mountain’ Art Event   20 – 29 September 2013

Blue Mountains Eco Arts Village to host Australia’s first Drawing Festival
$5000 Acquisitive Art Award at Wild Valley Art Park, Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains
Draw on the Mountain is an inaugural Art Festival featuring Workshops, Talks, Exhibitions, Events & Prize Winning Drawing Competition.
Discover the beauty of the Blue Mountains all over again, or for the very  first time – and you may even win some money!

The Festival Program features workshops and master classes by some of Australia’s leading artists, including Wedderburn artists David Fairbairn and Suzanne Archer, renowned oil painter and landscape painter Lucy Culliton, Byron Bay’s Liz Powell, and local artists Michael Herron and Michiyo Miwa.
Open to all people of all ages with workshops for all skill levels, experience and expertise.  There are also special workshops for children and younger artists.
The Drawing Festival includes the Sketchbook Art Trail – a self-guided/self-drive art experience, capturing World Heritage backdrops, iconic tourist attractions and less known natural locations in the Blue Mountains and surrounds.  For those who do not want to drive,  the festival has partnered with Blue Mountains Explorer Bus Service, with full weekend service (more details on attached pdf press release).
Each participant will have work shown in the competition exhibition – with prize money of $5000 for overall winner (donated by Wild Valley Art Park).
Wild Valley Art Park is owned by artist Selena Seifert and her husband and business partner, Jasper Russell.  They bought this magnificent 17 acre property two years ago and together have transformed it into the Eco Arts Centre, Sculpture Garden and Artist Retreat it is today.  Once the headquarters of Planet Ark and originally built as a sustainable village project by Mission Australia, Wild Valley Art Park is a unique, self-sufficient, beautifully presented bushland oasis.

The Very Terry Reid Award was made possible due to generosity and vision of the artist Terry Reid with additional support by Hadley Green Company.
AñA Wojak is an award winning cross-discipinary artist working in performance, painting, assemblage, installation and theatre design, with a particular interest in site-specificity.
Based in Lismore NSW, her work has been shown extensively throughout Australia and internationally. She has worked with Tony Yap Co, Pacitti Co, La Pocha Nostra, senVoodoo (as co founder) and Felix Ruckert, amongst others. She has been exhibiting for over 30 years and was the recipient of the prestigious Blake Prize in 2004.
Following this residency she is performing at undisclosed territories#7 International Performance Art Meeting in Java as well as Melaka Arts Festival, Malaysia. In 2014 she is designing The Pomegranate Cycle for Prometheus Opera and showing stepping stones… culmination of a 4 year project retracing ther family’s migration from Europe, at Lismore Regional Art Gallery.

Terry Reid is credited with beginning the movement of Mail Art in the South Pacific and, with Taii Ashizawa and Kunimasa Kuriyama, internationalising Mail Art in Japan. Mail Art is a cross-cultural, intercontinental movement that began in the 1960s and involves sending visual art (but also music, sound art, poetry) through the postal system. Terry lives and works in Sydney and has maintained the practice of Mail Art since 1967.
BigCi is an independent, artist run, not for profit micro artist residency program located in Bilpin on the edge of the World Heritage listed Greater Blue Mountains, about one and a half hours drive away from Sydney, Australia. Bilpin is a quiet, isolated place, with a population of around 500, scattered in a thin, long wedge of rural land sandwiched between Wollemi National Park and Blue Mountains National Park. The four-shop centre of Bilpin includes a small Post Office.
Mail is not delivered to BigCi; it is personally collected at the Post Office. The ritual of the mail collection provides a point of social contact within the surrounds of pristine wilderness. The Post Office is located near to the beginning of the unsealed road, 820 meters from BigCi. Proposals for the Award needed to show how the artist wishes to respond to the environment of Bilpin and specifically utilise the Bilpin Post Office, relating it in some way to the art.

ENTRY FOR 2013 MORAN PRIZES ARE NOW OPEN
ENTRY FOR 2013 MORAN PRIZES ARE NOW OPEN
ENTER NOW FOR THE 2013 DOUG MORAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT PRIZE & MORAN CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRIZES

http://www.moranprizes.com.au/enter
THE MORAN PRIZES 2013 | CELEBRATING 25 YEARS
For 25 years, The Moran Prizes have been supporting the individuality of Australian artists and their talents.
In celebration of Australia’s bicentennial, Doug and Greta Moran established the Moran Arts Foundation, aiming to foster portraiture skills. Since 2007, the Foundation has also been a strong supporter of excellence in photography.
In a world focused on celebrity, The Moran Prizes are about the greatness in every Australian. Veteran art curator and director, Daniel Thomas AM will be again supporting The Moran Prizes, judging the 2013 portrait finalists along side Artist, Ben Quilty.
“I am honoured to be part of the judging process for the Moran Prizes in their 25th year. The Doug Moran National Portrait Prize allows unique individualities to shine. Besides celebrities, often only partly known to artists before a portrait-taking session, in the Moran we also encounter strong emotional connections between artists and long-familiar intimates. Two Australians, the winning artist and a sometimes humble sitter, will receive global attention from this, the world’s richest art prize.” – Daniel Thomas  AM
“I’ll be looking for good strong painting. I want to see more than just a likeness of the sitter. I want to see how that person sounds, how they have affected the artist, how they think and how their humanity has attracted the artist to work with them. I’m less interested in likeness and more interested in how paint can make me feel.”  – Ben Quilty
This year, the Moran Prizes will be hosted at Juniper Hall, in Paddington (Sydney). Juniper Hall is set to become the permanent home of The Moran Arts Foundation Collection and the venue for the annual exhibition of the Moran Prizes.
The historic Georgian building will become an important new exhibition space, displaying the winning works from this year’s competition.

Solid Ground_Echoes_WebButton
Call for Proposals – Solid Ground II: Echoes
Solid Ground II: Echoes Curated by Tom Macphail*
13 – 30 June 2013
With a Federal election approaching, Solid Ground II: Echoes is an inquiry into the current debates pertaining to asylum seekers and refugees within Australia by bringing together a range of artists and writers, aiming to approach the subject by expressing a variety of viewpoints, observations and lived experiences.
The aim of the exhibition is to focus on the facts of the current issues whilst considering Australia’s immigration history, international context and the political rhetoric and media sensationalism that has marred the issues and demonized ‘boat people’. The ‘White Australian’ policy of earlier decades demonstrates that Australian’s fear of outsiders is nothing new, yet the current polarization of the voting public reveals issues of underlying xenophobia that we have yet to shake off.
At The Vanishing Point gallery, in association with OPEN Marrickville is calling for artists whose artworks/practices are engaged with the above subject and writers who are looking to be published with the show’s accompanying zine. All medium and contemporary visual arts practices are welcome to apply.
Propose up to 5 artworks per artist.
Proposals due 6pm Sunday 2 June.
For a proposal form http://www.atthevanishingpoint.com.au/web_images/2013_ProposalCalls/Solid%20Ground%20II%20Echoes%20Proposal%20FORM_WEB.pdf
For further information http://www.atthevanishingpoint.com.au/index.php?p=9_6
or call (02) 9519 2340 or email info@atthevanishingpoint.com.au
*Solid Ground II: Echoes is supported by funding from Marrickville Council’s Open Marrickville festival & ATVP’s Emerging Curator Mentorship program, supported by The Visual Arts and Craft Strategy and the NSW Government through Arts NSW.

The Fish Bowl - new project space call out
The Fish Bowl – new project space call out
As you may have heard the new Dean (Ross Harley) has given his offices on the ground floor of D-block to the student body as exhibition or project spaces.
These glass walled rooms look out on to the courtyard and are an amazing place to conduct performances, live art production, and exhibit installations.
This new space is called The Fish Bowl. It will be open to any student* who wishes to use it. One room is for a week-long exhibition of work/ experimental project, another is a casual space to trial installation possibilities of your work for a few hours.
All you need to do to gain access to these awesome new rooms is to send a proposal to the Courtyard Collective via the Arc Office at COFA. As long as you aren’t using anything problematic like a raging bonfire or litres of sulphuric acid, we’ll slot you in!
Contact us at cofa@arc.unsw.edu.au

This year, Sydney joins the global network of creatives for the first time, and invites all city artists & creative enthusiasts alike to join us on the 1st of June in Newtown.

2. Create any art work related to music in a general way: For example: a tribute to an artist, a concert, a musical moment of your life, your favourite style, musical origins…
HOW TO PARTICIPATE?
1.Everyone can participate. You just need to join the event on Facebook.
