Conceived by Penrith Regional Gallery, in consultation with our artist communities, Ancher Points: Emerging Artists Intensive is the inaugural professional development program designed specifically to support emerging artists from Greater Western Sydney in a contemporary regional gallery setting.
The program will take place in Ancher House, an architectural collaboration between Margo Lewers and renowned mid-century Architect, Sydney Ancher. It builds on the experimental, artistic and intellectual legacy of the original inhabitants, Gerald and Margo Lewers, who realised their creative vision at Emu Plains.
We are excited and pleased to announce the successful artists who have been selected to part of our 2023 Ancher Points: Emerging Artist Intensive.
The Summer Studio Residency initiative offers one artist the opportunity to undertake a six-week studio residency in the Sonia Farley Studios at our Emu Plains site with $1000 stipend. The residency is available for early or mid-career artists.
The Summer Studio Residency is open to individuals and collectives and takes place over six weeks in summer. Resident artists have seven day access to the site, during business hours. Public holidays are excluded.
Past residencies include: Rebecca Gallo, Harriet Body, Rochelle Summerfield, David Capra (see video below), Freya Jobbins (see video below), Hayley Megan French, Cindy Chen, Victoria Garcia and Catherine O’Donnell.
