Congratulations to emerging artist Maggie Jeffries, who has been awarded a residency opportunity at the world-renowned Cité Internationale des Arts complex in Paris, through the Rosamond McCulloch Studio. Each year the University of Tasmania offers up to six residencies at the Studio, which is situated in a beautiful eighteenth century town house close to the main Cité complex.
Since its establishment in 1991, many Tasmanian artists have had the opportunity to live in the heart of Paris while studying and developing new work. Maggie will be spending two months at the Rosamond McCulloch Studio, which is situated on the right bank of the river Seine and within walking distance of all the main Paris galleries, including the Louvre. The Cite complex itself hosts approximately 300 studios, owned by universities and arts organisations around the world. The buildings also house common rooms and a library, a large gallery, a concert hall, as well as printmaking and photographic facilities.
Maggie has proposed to creative a new series of botanical paintings during her stay that pay homage to Claude Monet and the garden that inspired some of his most inspirational paintings.
Maggie will be holding her second solo exhibition with Despard, opening 20 September 2023. Click here to register your interest for Maggi Jeffries solo exhibition in 2023.
