2020 has been a year like no other and it is important to reflect on the people and communities that have helped us to make it through. Seven artists from Studio A have done just that with their epic, colourful mural that spans the length of the Gallery’s entrance court, Love owls and mermaids singing in the rainbow pop. The mural depicts a person or a being who has supported and inspired each artist during 2020: fellow artists, writers, friends, family, pets and imaginative companions. For our final Art After Hours Online talk this year, Yumi Stynes speaks with two of the artists, Meagan Pelham and Jaycee Kim, about their experience creating the mural – an electrifying declaration of the power of love and a celebration of unity.
