Artists in Residence – Brent Learned & Merryn Apma

Open Studio Day

Woolshed Gallery
Saturday 25th February 10 AM - 3 PM

An extraordinary opportunity to see two unique artists in residence working within their temporary studio space at Strathnairn Arts.

Brent Learned & Merryn Apma will open their doors to the public on Saturday 25th February to provide insight into their working process as well as their cultural influences.

There will also be a vibrant exhibition of works for sale.

Brent Learned is a Native American artist from Oklahoma who draws, paints, and sculpts the Native American Indian in a contemporary impressionistic style. As an enrolled member of the Cheyenne-Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, Learned appreciates the legacy and culture of the American Plains Indian. “I create artwork to capture the essence, accuracy and historic authenticity of the American Plains Indian way of life,” says the artist.

Merryn Apma is a highly influential Aboriginal artist who resides in Tilba NSW. Merryn opened an Aboriginal Art Gallery in August 2015 where she showcases Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists from all over Australia. A big heart within a tight knit community, Merryn has been a powerful leader for Aboriginal issues since the famous Long Walk led by former AFL footballer Michael Long from Melbourne to Canberra in 2004.

We hope you will join us in observing these two artists at work & seeing the vast contrasts as well as similarities within their process & completed works.

Come for the Open Studios then stay for the Meet and Greet in the Homestead Gallery at 3.30pm! 

We hope to see you there!

Barbara has recently moved to the Jervis Bay area and her work is now reflecting this change. Jo though living in Canberra owns land on the far south coast and her work reflects an abiding love for the flora and fauna of the south east forests of NSW.
