Still Life brings together a collection of paintings, drawings and prints from Arts Project Australia artists working from observation. There is an intimate connection between the subject matter and the artist, the works tenderly capturing life in the studio, objects of admiration, or pursuits of great personal affection. Featuring an interactive still-life installation which visitors and artists can engage and respond to throughout, this immersive exhibition speaks to the heart of APA studio life.

Exhibiting artists are Adrian Lazzaro, Alanna Dodd, Amani Tia, Anthony Romagnano, Cameron Gresswell, Fiona Longhurst, Ian Gold, Jillian Richards, Lewis Quinn, Monica Lazzari, Philip Truett, Samantha Ashdown and Suzanne Barnes.

Still Life is co-curated by Yoshe Gillespe (APA staff artist, printmaking specialist), Suzie Brown (APA staff artist), Amani Tia (APA artist) and Samantha Ashdown (APA artist),

Satellite Arts Virtual Exhibition is the first exhibition to present a survey of all participants in the Satellite Arts program at Arts Project Australia.

The Satellite Arts program is an online extension of the Arts Project studio environment, where artists can meet, interact, explore ideas, engage with one anotherโ€™s projects, and receive feedback for their work. The exhibition, like the program itself, will take place online in a virtual gallery space.

Satellite Arts supports participants in developing their art practice by offering the opportunity to join an online creative community. The program gives artists access to professional mentorship and assistance from a highly qualified team of staff artists and the chance to create, discuss, and explore art in a supportive group environment. 

The content is tailored to each artistโ€™s personal working preferences, with the option to join both individual and group sessions on Zoom. Satellite Arts operates on a sessional basis each Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with artists attending according to their level of interest or other commitments. Satellite Arts artists also have the opportunity to explore, develop and expand their art practice through a range of disciplines, with an optional materials kit available for purchase.
