The CORRIDOR project artist residency
17 - 26 November, 2022

POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER CONDITIONS

Lismore Regional Gallery and The CORRIDOR project (TCP) are partnering to offer a residency to three Northern Rivers artists impacted by the Lismore floods in early 2022.

The 10-day residency will give the artists space to devote time and care to their practices. Participating artists Luke Atkinson, Antoinette O’Brien, and Wally McGregor were each delivered a massive blow by the recent floods, with flooding to their homes and studios. The residency is intended to help them to prioritise their practices in a difficult year and provide a supportive collegiate to inspire their work. Infrastructure on this beautiful rural property has been architecturally adapted for artist residencies, providing living and studio spaces. The artists will also spend time at Rebecca Dowling’s ceramic studio, located close to TCP, to explore their shared interests in clay.

About the artists
Luke Atkinson had a long and successful career as Art Director in magazine design, working for esteemed publications. In 2018 Atkinson changed direction to pursue ceramics, studying at The National Art School and Lismore TAFE. He is experimenting with form, mark marking, and developing his own language in the medium of clay.  

A rising talent in Australian contemporary art, Antoinette O’Brien’s work explores the figure within the social and the natural world. Her mixed media ceramics are animated by conflicting emotions and questions of identity. O’Brien studied at Tasmania University and Lismore TAFE. She is represented by Edwina Corlette, Brisbane. 

Growing up in the Blue Mountains, Wally McGregor was surrounded by pottery from a very early age. Both his mother and grandfather were potters. Keen to establish his own creative voice and identity, he studied painting and drawing at the National Art School, but at the start of COVID, he was called into the medium of clay, adding it to his practice.  

The CORRIDOR project is a not-for-profit multidisciplinary arts organisation providing a platform for residency, education, cultural pursuits and/or research.
 
This initiative has been supported through the CORRIDOR project and the New South Wales Government through Create NSW.
