Meet the Maker: Studio A
Meet the Lads with Looms : Studio A artists Adam Mandarano & Damian Showyin weaving in store.
Studio A is a supported studio based in Sydney Australia that tackles the barriers that artists living with intellectual disability face in accessing conventional education, professional development pathways and opportunities needed to be successful and renowned visual artists.
Adam acts tough but weaves delicately. In his woven works Adam sensitively collages textures and tones to create cohesive wearable works of art. Damian is a painter and proficient weaver. Just like his approach to painting, on the loom the artist blends colours and patterns to compose compelling textile wall pieces, sculptures and cushions.
When: Friday 13 October, 11am – 1pm
Where: Object Shop, ADC
