Studio Upstairs Celebrates 30 years

Studio Upstairs was founded in 1988 for people moving out of the psychiatric health system, by providing a supportive community-based environment where members can communicate their experiences through making art. 

An exhibition to celebrate the 30 years will showcase work from members of the Studio Upstairs past and present and includes painting, print, sculpture and digital media.

Artist Statement: ‘As artists, we make art to explore our experiences of everyday life and use them as raw material in the creative process. In doing so we can make these experiences understandable or acceptable to ourselves and to the world outside.’
