Megan Cope Site-Specific Installation from 6-22 December 2012

QPAC Playhouse Green, South Bank




NEWflames artist Ian Waldron recently conducted a painting workshop with artists from the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre. While the art centre was spared any major damage during cyclone Yasi in February this year, the surrounding rainforest, woodland and coastal habitats which are the source of lawyer cane and timber used in making baskets and other traditional objects, was badly damaged and will take time to regrow.




NEWflames News The first Artists in Residence for 2011

The past month has been an eventful and exciting one for NEWflames artists. The NEWflames studio was transformed into a hive of activity as two new artists in residence began work. Megan Cope and Shannon Brett both worked intensively during their residencies to produce two highly innovative but very different shows.


NewFlames is pleased to announce that Shannon Brett will be the artist in residence over the coming months working on a new body of work
