AIRed: 6 artists in residence

Wed 11 May - Sat 4 Jun 2011

The exhibition was opened on Thu 12 May @ 5.30pm by Dr Carole Wilson, Senior Lecturer, Honours & Research Degrees Co-ordinator, Arts Academy, University of Ballarat

The University of Ballarat Arts Academy Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program invited artists of international standing, either Australian or from overseas to spend a brief concentrated period resident at the Arts Academy. The program was designed to support selected artists by providing resources, space and equipment to assist in the creation and promotion of their work and in turn encourage artists to impart their knowledge and skills to students for the duration. The program had clear benefits for students and staff as well the broader community in the form of exhibitions, lectures, seminars, master-classes and workshops.

In 2011, the Post Office Gallery showcased the work of six visual artists who have undertaken a residency at the Arts Academy, University of Ballarat during the last two years. The artists include Terry Davies, Christopher Headley, Rosalind Lawson, Li-Feng Lo, Anne Scott Wilson and Lars Stenberg.
