Applications Now Being Accepted for the next Resident Artist Program at Nyora Studio Gallery commencing April 2019

Following the success of the previous Resident Artist’s Program’s we are excited to announce that, the call for applications are now open for the Resident Artist’s Program 2019/ -20, to be held at Nyora Studio Gallery the thriving centre for the Arts situated in the leafy northern suburb of Eltham.

Artist’s are offered the unique opportunity to focus on the growth and development of their own art practice, at Nyora Studio in an environment that nurtures & encourages self-directed, studio practice in the following:  drawing, painting, or sculpture.  

The program  is characterised by the artist’s work being presented in individual & group tutorials through out the year. Guest artists will be invited to participate in the tutorials offering the artist a broad perspective of artistic influences & views. The pinnacle of the experience takes the form in the Resident Artist Exhibition 2020 at Nyora Studio Gallery,  providing a resolution of the commitment to the year of investigation & exploration. We look forward to another very exciting year.
