Season 3 Episode 57 - Studio A director Gabrielle Mordy and artist Thom Roberts
Apr 20, 2021

A few weeks ago we interviewed the amazing CEO and artistic director, Gabrielle Mordy, about her role at Studio A. Gabrielle and her staff have such passion and focus for Studio A we wish all artists had a Gabrielle assisting their careers!
.
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. The enterprise paves professional pathways for such artists so that they can achieve their artistic and economic aspirations.
.
We also spoke to artist Thom Roberts. Thom has a fascination and deep personal connection with trains. He sees them as having their own personalities and characters; they are his friends. He even gave us our own train name, Julie was Rosie and Fiona was Harbour Bridge! We also spoke to him about his animal portraits and his love of photocopiers. We loved this fun conversation with Thom.
.
Studio A provides its artists with a working studio space equipped with specialist materials and support staff. It also manages an annual exhibition program and facilitates weekly workshops provided by invited contemporary artists. Studio A supports a variety of artists working within a range of disciplines and thus strategically links Studio A artwork with an equally diverse range of target markets including art, design, craft, and corporate markets.
.
If you haven’t already heard about the Incognito Art Show where proceeds are going to Studio A, then get onto their website before Friday to take part in this great show.
.
You can also buy artworks and products, which are so fantastic, from their website studioa.org.au
.
ABC Iview has a series of Art Bites on a few Studio A artists which are well worth watching.
.
Thanks, Studio A!
