Myrtle Street Studio

March 26, 2010

Recently opened by the courageous and talented printmaker and artist, Jay Dee Dearness, Myrtle Street Studio is a new independent ARI (Artist Run Initiative). Located within one of Brisbanes’ most well preserved and prestigious inner-city suburbs, it incorporates a gallery space, specialist book/print store and artist studio. Specifically initiated to fill a gap in Brisbanes’ current art scene, Myrtle Street Studio represents student and emerging artists who work primarily in print and paper-based media with the aim to provide a professional, yet accessible contemporary art space for the local community.

PINE APPLES – From Pineapples to the Apple Isle, the inaugural exhibition opened tonight and was conceived by Patricia Zuber of Church Studio Franklin (in Tasmania) and Jay Dee as a collaborative  project between Hunter Island Press (HIP), Tasmania and Impress Printmaker’s Studio, Brisbane.

Thirty-six printmakers from both printmaking studios showcase their work in two locations over two months. The first exhibition was at Church Street Studio, Franklin from the 27 February to 7 March and the second at Myrtle Street Studio, Brisbane from the 27 March to 4 April 2010.

Visit the Myrtle Street Studio website and blog to find more information about the exhibition and event/workshop program.

This is definitely a space you’ll want to keep your eyes on…
