Splendid art unveiled at Splendour

The Splendid program over the past 12 months afforded selected artists an opportunity to develop their critical thinking and experimentation in an intensive three-week residential arts lab in Lismore.

It also gave those artists the opportunity to premiere their work at Splendour in the Grass 2012.

On Friday, July 27, Splendour In The Grass audiences will see the result when Nicole Breedon's Let's Get Metaphysical is unveiled at the festival.

Breedon's creation is the product of the Splendid Arts Lab 2011 and the consequent mentorship with artist Techa Noble.

Techa Noble has worked in contemporary art and design for the past 10 years. She is part of the art collective The Kingpins who have exhibited and commissioned performance pieces all over the world and across Australia.

Splendid is part of the Federal Government's Young and Emerging Artists initiative, managed by Lismore Regional Gallery in partnership with the Australia Council for the Arts, Splendour in the Grass and NORPA.
