Maria Peña’s Fachada exhibition launch

On Saturday 14 November TOP launched Fachada, an exhibition showcasing the prints, paintings, and sculptures by artist Maria Peña. Maria is one of The Ownership Project’s resident artists and has been creating work in close collaboration with printmakers Kylie Blackley and Sean Smith at TOP’s print studio over the last year.

The launch was an exciting event with a fantastic turnout. Gallery patrons on the night were estimated at a hundred, a lot to fit into our small Fitzroy showroom. Maria presented the context and significance of her artwork as well as explained the intricacies of the print making process learnt at TOP to a captivated audience. We would like to thank everyone for coming and creating such a joyous event and to congratulate Maria on her stunning new body of artwork.

The Ownership Project’s Artist in Residence program provides free art training and exhibition management mentoring for artists from newly-arrived, refugee and Indigenous Australian backgrounds. We are currently working with a dedicated and talented team of artists who will be exhibiting their work in the gallery in 2012.

With a selection of woodblock prints and etchings donated by friends of The Ownership Project available by auction, we invite you to come and enjoy good company, experience beautiful art, and help support the project. Overall, nine artists have contributed prints created at our Fitzroy studio as part of our public printmaking classes. Artists include:

Kylie Blackley, Ray Goh, Liz Lacey, Yvette Ladzinski, Cathy Robinson, Brad Rusbridge, Charlie Merchovich, Sean Smith & Jessica Wraight.

All proceeds from the auction will help sustain our Artist in Residence program, including art supplies, specialised support, equipment and further artist opportunities.

A selection of our current Artist in Residence and remote Indigenous partnerships stock will be available for viewing and purchasing on the evening.

We hope to see you there.
