WTS recently housed three artists from Melbourne for its Travelling Artist in Residency program. Ellah Blake, Nic Diprose and Sienna Thornton held an intimate exhibition at the space, Sunset Viewing Area, at the end of the residency, attracting a great audience who seemed to thoroughly enjoy the show. Nic spoke to the local paper about their experience in Central Australia, giving a bit of insight into the work created and what to expect at the Closing event.
