The Patron of Studio 22

M16 is currently on the lookout for a benefactor to support two six month residencies in our Studio 22 for 2018. This studio has long been dedicated as a space to help establish emerging artists, curators and arts writers.

By becoming a patron of M16’s Studio 22, you will provide two emerging artists with the opportunity to develop their artistic practices in a supportive and professional environment.

The residencies will be awarded to two graduates from the ANU, as part of the ANU Emerging Artists Support Scheme. Jas Hugonnet, M16’s Executive Director, will select the graduating artists for the residencies in consultation with Merryn Lloyd, M16’s Exhibitions and Promotions Coordinator. Artists will be selected based on the merit of their work.

In 2016, the estate of the late Pete Smith generously donated $2600 to fund M16’s Emerging Artist Residency Program. The recipients were Clare Solomon, a mixed media artist; and Mei Wilkinson, who specializes in painting and mixed media.

The value of the 2018 Residency Program is $2600 per annum. If you are the Patron of Studio 22 for 2018, please contact Jas Hugonnet on (02) 6295 9438 and/or email:

M16 will need to have confirmation of your support by late August 2017. Your kind patronage will be promoted in the 2017 ANU School of Art and Design Graduating Catalogue and through M16’s extensive mailing list and social media networks. However, there will be the option to remain anonymous if you please.

M16 would like to thank you in advance for your generous support.
