Tresillian Studio Artists take centre stage for first 2020 exhibition

The Tresillian Arts Centre is the hub of artistic talent in the western suburbs and is launching into the new year with an exhibition featuring the work of seven studio artists based at the Centre.

The ‘Tresillian Studio Artists - 2020’ exhibition is showing from 10 February to 

6 March 2020 with the official opening on Friday, 14 February.

The featured artists are all based at Tresillian, where they produce artwork as well as deliver courses for adult art students.  The artists practice diverse genres and many are award winning professionals, including Elmari Steyn who recently won the 2019 Busselton Art Award.

City of Nedlands Mayor, Cilla de Lacy says Tresillian has long been recognised as a training ground for outstanding local artists.

“It’s pleasing to see the artists in residence passing on their knowledge to new generations of painters and sculptors,” Ms de Lacy said.  

“Tresillian Arts Centre is a multi-faceted community arts centre and this exhibition is an opportunity, early in the year, for the studio artists to showcase their work to potential students as well as art lovers generally.”

Current studio artists at Tresillian are; 

•Angela Davis – Garden Studio

•Bee K C Tan – Green Studio

•Caroline Marinovich – Language Studio 

•Elmari Steyn – Corner Studio

•Judy Rogers – Potters Studio 

•Sue Hibbert – Courtyard Studio 

•Valerie Glover – Studio Eight 

Established in 1980 as a community arts centre, Tresillian this year celebrates 40 years of delivering excellent arts and learning experiences to the community.
