  • These new works will be developed at a residency in Japan in July 2017

“It is encouraging to see the breadth of activities undertaken by these emerging artists. It is also pleasing that the Graduate Support Program is enabling ambitious collaborations,” says Ingrid Kellenbach, CEO, Adelaide Central School of Art. “We remain committed to helping our alumni achieve their career goals.” 

The School is also pleased to announce that Grace Marlow, a Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) graduate and scholarship recipient (2016), has been named as the recipient of the 2017/18 Adelaide Central School of Art Fontanelle Residency.

Grace will soon occupy a generous studio space at Fontanelle Gallery & Studios Bowden for the 10-month residency.  This opportunity covers the rental fees of the studio, offers a mentorship with Fontanelle Directors Brigid Noone, Ben Leslie and Mary-Jean Richardson, and an exhibition in the project space.


The Adelaide Central School of Art Graduate Support Program was announced in March 2016. It provides graduates of the School with local residency opportunities, international workshops, grants that will support the production and presentation of new work, and quick-response grants for professional development.
