The artist collaborative Zilverster are having an Open Studio Day as part of their Room to Create residency. Come and meet them on Saturday 16 December and view what they have been creating.

The Room to Create Artist-in-Residence Program commenced in late 2017 as a pilot program, across three under-utilised council sites, the Florence Peel Centre, Williams Reserve Community Room and Hugo Wertheim – Studio One Community Hub.

Four artists were selected via an Expressions of Interest, with the successful applicants reflecting a diverse range of outstanding emerging and mid-career creative practitioners.

The artists involved in this pilot program have each spent three months in the spaces, developing their own work and a range of public outcomes, including open studios, film screenings, workshops and exhibitions.

Zilverster is an ongoing collaborative project between Sharon Goodwin and Irene Hanenbergh, two Melbourne-based artists who have garnered strong individual reputations for their imaginative, elaborate and meticulously rendered expanded drawing and painting practices. Zilverster have used this residency to develop a body of work for the exhibition, All the better to see you with: Fairy tales transformed, currently on at the Ian Potter Museum, Melbourne and a solo exhibition at Sarah Scout Presents in March 2018.
