Penrith Performing & Visual Arts is delighted to announce that our studios are OPEN for business. Join studio resident artists Miguel Olmo and Marian Tubbs on Saturday 19 Jan for a free viewing in their studios for a chance to see their most recent work, talk about their ideas and learn what they plan to do next.

The Sonia Farley Studios will be open for viewing from 10am – 2pm, with two sessions of sound performances by Miguel Olmo at 11am and 1.30pm.

Miguel Olmo’s works are eclectic and diverse; ranging across sculpture, installation, video, sound, and 2D work with a strong focus on sustainability, using materials such as reclaimed wood and papier-mache. Drawing from his Spanish heritage he explores time, memory and ephemerality through works made up of a series presented as installations. See an exclusive viewing of Miguel’s development of an installation and performance titled ‘Cocoon,’ incorporating elements of spoken-word, soundscape, sculpture and music to be presented as part of the 2019 Sydney Sacred Music Festival.

Marian Tubbs' installations and digital works look critically at where society places value. Natural and ‘artificial’ imagery is captured in fluid and static collage, with abstract narratives of trash the key to the work. Marian plans an ambitious sculptural installation using augmented reality and gaming applications. The new work will playfully take apart the ways standard rendering applications produce chromed or glistening surfaces, presenting how the ‘virtual’ can be anything one desires.

Undertaking a residency at Penrith Regional Gallery gives artists the opportunity to think, create, and story-board their work in a generous, professionally equipped modern studio space with all relevant facilities. Resident artists are also presented with invaluable exposure to Penrith Regional Gallery’s community of multi-disciplinary curators, artists, academics and technicians, as well as access to the Gallery’s permanent collection of Australian modern and contemporary art. Penrith Regional Gallery’s Summer Studio Residency is an initiative committed to supporting the professional development of artists within and beyond our region.
