A final trip for 2016 - thank you Sydney!
In December 2016, artists Mervyn Rubuntja, Vanessa Inkamala, Reinhold Inkamala, Benita Clements, Ricky Connick and staff member Marisa Maher traveled to Sydney to undertake a printmaking workshop with Cicada Press. The artists also celebrated their recently acquired artworks at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). Our next trip is to Canberra in February 2017, but for now we want to share with you some of these memorable moments in Sydney!
On Friday December 9th the artists visited the UTS Chancellery. Mervyn Rubuntja and Reinhold Inkamala presented their collaborative artwork, displayed in its new home!
A watercolour workshop at UTS
The group was also invited to facilitate a watercolour painting workshop with health students from the university. The inspiration for the workshop was Vanessa Inkamala's artwork titled "Dialysis, Homeless, Diabetes" which is also a recent addition to the UTS Art Collection.
The artists had a great day talking and showing the students how to design a landscape watercolour painting. A big thank you to: Tania Creighton and Alice McAuliffe (UTS), and Natalie O'Connor (Winsor & Newton) for their assistance in making it a great day for us all!
And here our latest and finest artworks for 2016!
