Call for Applications – Lamington Drive Residency

The Jacky Winter Group invites expressions of interest from emerging illustrators and image-makers to work in-residence at our gallery, Lamington Drive.

The primary purpose of the residency with Lamington Drive is to give emerging illustrators and image-makers a chance to create new work in a traditional gallery environment and to allow them to interact with the public in new ways. From works in progress to finished art; open studio to exhibition!

The Lamington Drive Residency will run from Wednesday March 9 – Saturday April 2. The duration of the Residency will be four weeks only – three weeks of on-site production and exploration (open to the eyes of the public) culminating in an exhibition in week four.

Lamington Drive is open Wednesday-Friday 11am-6pm and Saturday 12-5pm each week.* We would expect that residents will be available to work on-site at the space during gallery hours at the very least 50% of the time. The gallery will not be available to residents outside of gallery hours except where specified due to Easter public holidays.

The gallery will be open to visitors for the duration of the residency during gallery hours.
