Studio 19 Gallery Closing Party and Big Sale!

You may have heard through the grapevine that we have closed the Art Gallery arm of Studio 19 Wollongong. This decision was not made lightly but the fact is Nina and Caz are moving on to other things. Do not fear though as we are keeping the lovely creative loungeroom and will continue to host creative events such as the Poetry Slams and some live music and it will still be available for hire. We just aren’t open days unless we have an event on or by appointment only.

So to thank everyone for supporting us we are throwing one last big party to celebrate and well, let’s face it – we love a great party and any excuse is a good one.

Come down to Studio 19 for a good old fashioned BLUE LIGHT DISCO (80s outfit optional) where we will dance the night away. BYO. All ages welcome.

Tix are $10 and you can get them here:




ALSO!!!! As we are downsizing we are putting up some of our RETRO FURNITURE and bits and pieces FOR SALE. Get a ticket to the party and get first dibs before we have our big sale on Saturday and Sunday (11am-3pm). Furniture, books, cds, clothing, kitchenware, and if you ever thought about buying some of cazzie’s artwork now is your chance – make us an offer!

NOW TAKING SUBMISSIONS: Put Your Art Where Your Mouth Is Poster Art Exhibition

 

You are invited to be a part of a great new exhibition to be held at Studio 19 Art Gallery Wollongong

PUT YOUR ART WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS…

Exhibition on show from 11th June – 28th June 2014

Opening Night Friday, 13th June from 6.30pm-9.30pm

Put Your Art Where Your Mouth Is…. is a poster art exhibition that outlines the role of issues-based poster art in society and it’s importance in detailing awareness of problems that effect local and global communities. We will use this exhibition as a platform for activism and political protest and show the ways in which it can encourage community participation in creating issues-based design. Each poster is to have a political, environmental or social message. It is our time to speak out about things that affect us. Think the Government, bullying, racism, prejudice, public misconceptions, environmental issues or anything you want to bring attention to and say it by designing/illustrating/making a great poster.

The posters are to be printed A2 size (420 x 594 mm) with a 1cm white border. Posters will be pinned to the wall (no need to frame them).

Entry to the exhibition is $50 per entry and this covers hire of the space, insurance and opening night nibblies.

Studio 19’s commission is 20% so please factor this into your sale price. You may sell editions of your prints.

Interest must be registered by 13th May and works must be in by 4th June.

This exhibition is open to emerging as well as established artists and designers

“24″ Film Photography Exhibition

“24″ Group Photography Exhibition at Studio 19 Wollongong

Exhibition dates 19th March – 5th April

Opening night will be Friday 21st March 6.30pm – 8.30pm

ABOUT “24″
The object of this exhibition is to present 24 photographic shots in one day of an artist’s life. Exactly one 24-exposure roll of film is shot in a 24-hour period with the entire roll of film being exhibited. So many photographs are edited and perfected within the digital era that we wanted to show that using film is about a process, experimentation and not knowing what you will get until it is processed.

Photography Exhibition at Studio 19 Wollongong

Exhibition dates 19th March – 12th April

Opening night will be Friday 21st March

SUBMISSIONS MUST BE IN BY 3PM FRIDAY 14TH MARCH

RULES

The object of this exhibition is to present 24 shots of one day in your life. You must exhibit exactly one roll, even if the shot didn’t work out. It’s all about a process and experimentation. We are not striving for perfection here.

Please use 35mm film only. It can be B&W, Colour, old film, whatever as long as it’s 35mm. I would also like to see the negatives for proof that it has come from one roll.

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, ALL SHOTS MUST BE IN LANDSCAPE FORMAT NOT PORTRAIT! (ie long side across not up and down)

Once you have taken your photos please print them out at 6 x4 with white borders on them. This is very important as we have planned a certain way of exhibiting them.

For processing film we use Photoriesel in Sydney, there is also Blanco Negro. But use the power of google to sort it out. If anyone has any suggestions let us know and we will share it.

How much will this cost?

To exhibit in this show it will be $50 for each entry plus 20% commission on sales. What does this cover you ask? It covers the exhibition fee for one month, e –invite design, opening night expenses, promotion through social media and our mailing list. I will send out e-invites for you to distribute to your contacts.

To confirm your spot please $50 deposit is required. Get in touch for options.

One last thing, we are having a makeover at the gallery so we will be holding exhibitions in the hallway and creative loungeroom from now on.

If you have any more questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Please share this with other photographers that may be interested.

If you would like to take part in this exhibition that will be held at Studio 19 art gallery Wollongong please contact nina@exposurearts.com.au
