The Art Factory is a supported studio that provides artists with guidance, mentoring, networks and career paths to assist in establishing and maintaining a contemporary arts practice.

The studio opened in 2016 at Riverina Community College with 7 members. It has since grown to accommodate over 15 practising artists. This exhibition will bring together a selection of artworks created in The Art Factory studio in 2018.

Isobel Lambert, a new artist to the studio says, “Working in The Art Factory studio is fun and inspiring. Being surrounded by great artists is very enjoyable.”

Tia Kissier, agrees with Isobel and comments, “I love to paint and be around the other artists. This will be my first exhibition and I feel really excited.”

“The end of year exhibition from the Art Factory is a great way to see the wonderful work each artist is making. The studio is a vibrant place where people with learning disability can be themselves and focus on their art making. All of the works are for sale and buying something directly supports the artists. I encourage everyone to come along and see the work of some excellent Riverina artists,” says Sarah McEwan, the Artistic Director.
