Opportunities for Noosa Artists | Noosa today
Following the success of the first Masterclass Series in 2019, Noosa Regional Gallery is delighted to announce the launch of its second professional artist training program after Covid restrictions hampered the 2021 programme.
Drawing on internationally acclaimed artists from across the country, nine contemporary artists working in a range of media and techniques will hold intensive workshops at the Gallery. Offering the opportunity for local artists to undertake skills development directly from some of Australia’s leading artists, the artists delivering these masterclasses include;
– Seventeen-time painter Archibald Prize finalist, 1997 People’s Choice Award winner, 2013 Packers Prize winner and 2010 Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award winner Mathew Lynn is one of the best-known and most successful portrait painters in Australia for over twenty years;
– Artist and curator Lisa Waup is internationally recognized for her distinct weaving techniques. Finalist of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards 2016, 2017 and 2018, National Indigenous Fashion Awards 2020 and winner of the Victorian Craft Awards 2019, her work is held in public institutions and private collections in Australia and abroad; and
– Finalist of several awards including 2011 Woollahra Small Sculpture, Substation Contemporary Art Prize and Yering Station Sculpture Prize, the sculptural practice of Natalie Ryan, PhD, explores themes that surround the aesthetic representation of the corpse and the natural sciences through history and their inclusion in contemporary art.
“Building on the success of our Masterclass Series in 2019, we are delighted to once again offer this remarkable opportunity for local artists to work alongside some of Australia’s most exciting and prominent artists,” said Michael Brennan, Director of Noosa Regional Gallery. “The chance to work alongside artists of this caliber is often not available outside of capitals, so this is an opportunity not to be missed.”
