SAM PETERSEN INTERVIEW

Artist Sam Petersen talks about her work in interview with Fiona Parker of 91.1FM

With her upcoming show Ok, I'll do Angels Instead opening at Stockroom Gallery in October 2017, artist Sam Petersen recently spoke with Fiona Parker of Breakfast With Fiona Parker on 91.1FM.

Sam Petersen's work stems from the self and all that is close to her.  She is interested in what can be done with one's fluid self and the space around it.  The artist work relates to body as well as mind, exploring everyday feelings between the rational and the playful. Click on the audio link below to listen to the artist speaking about her work.

OUR FIRST MASTERCLASS

Our first masterclass with Daniel Butterworth on Sunday 12th of February

On Sunday we kicked off our new masterclass program at Stockroom with Daniel Butterworth delivering a One Day Intensive class on Portrait Painting. The class started with a demonstration from Daniel Butterworth. The 8 students then proceeded to energetically create self portraits under the guidance of Daniel.  It was fabulous to see the group of art students with varied skill levels and approaches all creating a number of excellent works.  Everyone had a great time and felt they took home new skills and insights.

We are very much looking forward to seeing the rest of the program getting underway and enjoy watching the new skills and techniques being delivered by our Masters.  We are pumped that Stockroom has its very own Art School.

curated by JESSICA BRIDGFOOT

We have officially lost Jess Bridgfoot but she hasn’t quite gone yet. Indeed, the next exhibition at Stockroom has been curated by Jess – and it promises to be amazing. Titled Belonging to the Night, Jess writes that the show is ‘inspired by the dark moments between sleep and wake. Imagine that you have woken in the middle of the night to find yourself in an eerie landscape populated by disembodied figures and other-worldly creature. In Belonging to the Night, artists investigate the dystopian beauty of a nocturnal world across themes of landscape, myth, sex and death.’ With a roster of talent including Bonnie Hanlon, Bonnie Lane, Michael Needham, Renuka Rajiv, Brad Rusbridge, Heather B. Swann and Ross Taylor, the exhibition will be well worth visiting.

Belonging to the Night opens at 4.30 on Saturday 10 December and all are welcome. It runs until Sunday 8 January.
