A NEW artist-in-town will touch down in Biloela next Wednesday afternoon and will stay, as the Artisan in Residence, for two weeks.

Adele Outteridge will be conducting a series of workshops for would-be artists.

Ms Outteridge specializes in “Artists’ Books”, which will be the theme of the workshops.

She was invited to be the artist in residence by Shelley Pisani from the Ideas Distillery on recommendation from Claire Sourgnes, CEO of Artisan after consultation with local artists.

Starting her career as an Experimental Scientist with the CSIRO, Ms Outteridge has a rich background that informs her work.

Ms Outteridge now teaches art both interstate and internationally, however, she currently resides in Studio West End in Brisbane.

 “I always think any dissemination of ideas and different approaches to art are beneficial to fellow artists, viewers, participants, and the community in general,” Ms Outteridge said.

“Not many people are familiar with the idea of "Artists' Books", which can be succinctly defined as "works of art in book form".

"I look forward to sharing my love for this medium with the Banana Shire community.

“There are many types of artists' books: for example, journals, photo books, sculptural books, book objects, narratives, etcetera,” she said.

To book for Ms Outteridge’s workshops please call 4992 9500 or email enquires@banana.qld.gov.au.
