December December December until Christmas

Artroomers has built up a reputation over 25 years for quick delivery of high quality custom framing. So you can still get your work framed for Christmas!

Artroomers will close for a week from midday 24 December and reopen on January 2. As we are the major art supply support system for the Sturt Summer School, we will resume normal hours from Thursday 2 January.

Meanwhile, during December at artroomers artspace, you can view works that have been created by Robyn Kinsela, as parts of a series. Working in a series frees up the artist giving head space and time to concentrate on, and develop, a train of thought (and in Robyn’s case, many trains of thought) which eventually leads to a new body of work. Anyway, come and have a look for yourself. exhibition view #1 exhibition view #2 exhibition view #3Further, Robyn’s work can be seen as an exhibition based on her West of Wilcannia paintings and works on paper, at The Red Tree Café, Station Street Bowral. This work will be on view until the end of January.

But, there’s more…. Mark Chance, owner/chef extraordinaire at the Primary Espresso Bowral, 2/23 Boolwey Street Bowral, permanently has Robyn’s work on the walls. This is different work, but work that relates to each other within the space, and Robyn takes liberty to show some more edgy paintings and works on paper for the amusement and/or enjoyment of customers.

Gallery

This gallery contains 82 photos.

artroomers was established in Mittagong in 1988 by Stuart and Robyn Kinsela after they secured several large art commissions that were going to need specific framing and ongoing access to art materials. Since 2001, Stuart has made picture framing his fulltime occupation and … Continue reading

Between the years 2001 and 2006, Robyn Kinsela was granted a block of time each year as artist-in-residence in the then named Wood Workshop at ANU (Australian National University) in Canberra.

workshopDSC_0001

Working with, and encouraged by educational visionary and Head of School, Dr Rodney Hayward, Robyn facilitated various approaches to the idea of design and drawing as extensions in the processes of thinking and problem solving. Through drawing and photography, new ways of seeing and of thinking “outside the square”, were established.

Robyn documented much student work during these years, offering creative presentation solutions.

Howard would take the first year students each year for 3 weeks, in which time they would entirely from scratch, so to speak, make an unique chair without using any electric tools.

It was always amazing to see the looks on the students’ faces when they were initially presented with the felled tree from which they would start building.
