𝗔𝗥𝗧𝗜𝗦𝗧 𝗙𝗢𝗖𝗨𝗦 | 𝗖𝗶𝗿𝗰𝗹𝗲𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝘀

FULLI ANDRINOPOULOS is an established artist whose practice is characterised by her signature floating circular forms. Her small-scale paintings are executed in a variety of media including ink, gouache, acrylic and pastel. Her ethereal works resonate with a sense of mystery and emotion. The considered colour combinations, mark-making and layering of textures build depth and space in her compositions, which—when viewed on mass—reveal an endless variation of the circular motif, each work seemingly the same yet different. Andrinopoulos has worked at Arts Project since 1991.

JULIAN MARTIN is an established artist whose pastel works make a distinctive visual statement. Martin methodically works from photographs and still life to create abstract compositions as a continuous reinterpretation and response to form. Martin has worked at Arts Project since 1988 and held multiple solo shows both in Australia and Internationally.

𝘊𝘪𝘳𝘤𝘭𝘦𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘬𝘴 continues until 24 April at our Collingwood Yards gallery.

Taking place as part of Photo 2022, 𝘜𝘨𝘭𝘺/𝘉𝘦𝘢𝘶𝘵𝘪𝘧𝘶𝘭 is a solo exhibition of photographic work by mixed-media APA artist Mark Smith; it presents a space for beauty and ugliness to coalesce.

Exploring identity, difference and faith, the artwork aims to express feelings of joy; says Smith “This is me!” yet, the viewer’s experience is more confronting, with imagery depicting digital collages of body parts lurching outwards from a black background, prompting feelings of disconnectedness, discomfort, and unease.

“After my accident, I was told I’d never walk again. I proved them wrong. I consider limitations and barriers imposed on me as an invitation and motivation to fuel my determination to create and succeed. My works are ambiguous to the viewing public. However, my greater intention is to break down preconceived understandings of disability. My life’s experiences are definitely an inspiration for my artworks.” — Mark Smith, 2021

Colac’s Kirstie Newcombe is a Satellite Arts participant whose work is often inspired by Pokémon.

Kirstie joined Satellite Arts during lockdowns in 2020, to connect with other artists and develop her artistic skill set.

“I asked Mum if there were any new art programs I could join, she found Arts Project’s Satellite Arts online and joined me up” says Kirstie. “It’s Melbourne-based but I can attend by Zoom, normally I’d have to go to Melbourne but I don’t have to because I can do it online. I’ve found it really good, they’re very supportive and easy to talk to.”

Satellite Arts is APA’s remote online program; supporting artists living with an intellectual disability access the studio via Zoom.

Open 10 March – 9 April, Alan Constable and Lisa Reid are showing a selection of ceramic works at Conners Conners Gallery, as part of group show ‘Ceramic pipes, socks and globular, bumpy, suggestive objects.’

The starting point for this exhibition is the Funk Art Movement in San Francisco during the 1960s, which had ceramics as a key aspect. The movement was a reaction against the dominance of Abstract Expressionism with a focus on a gestural, figurative and animated approach to making.

General information

In the early 1970s , the art of people with an intellectual disability was largely unseen or undervalued by society. Myra Hilgendorf OAM, who founded Arts Project Australia in 1974, insisted their artwork be presented in a professional manner and that artists were accorded the same dignity and respect as their non-disabled peers. Myra’s own experience of more than 20 years caring for her daughter Johanna, an artist with an intellectual disability, led her to pursue quality opportunities and resources for others. She and her colleagues took a major step in bringing the work to the attention of the art world and general public. For a full history visit our website.

​Who we are, what we do and why we do it

Arts Project Australia has aimed high since 1974 when we set out to lead and innovate in the arts and disability sectors. Since then, the quality of our exhibitions and artwork created in our studio has flourished, fed by a range of innovative programs and activities. We were the first full-time art studio in Australia for artists with an intellectual disability and have built a reputation both in Australia and internationally for our achievements on this front. Proof lies in the consistency and quality of the exhibitions and programs that we produce and deliver, along with the extraordinary opportunities and experiences we have brokered for our artists. They have been included in exhibitions all over the world and are represented in countless public and private collections.

Arts Project Australia acknowledges the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional owners of the land upon which Arts Project Australia stands.

Northcote is home to the most wonderful arts organisations - including Arts Project Australia located in Westgarth who support artists with intellectual disabilities to grow, exhibit and sell their work. They’ve nurtured some amazing artists, including Alan Constable’s famous ceramic cameras. I dropped by to congratulate Executive Director Sue Roff on securing a four-year investment from Creative Victoria so they can keep expanding their offering. Along with Arts Project Australia, local arts orgs Gertrude Contemporary, Multicultural Arts Victoria (MAV) and Speak Percussion will also share a combined $2.9 million over the next four years as part of this massive funding boost for our creative industries. It means new creative works, more exhibitions, and more jobs for local creatives 🎨🎭🖌
