Arthive has now closed. Thanks for your support!

We're Turning One!!

In the last year ARThive has hosted the work of over 100 artists, musicians, writers and performers, with close to 4000 visitors visiting the little gallery space hidden away upstairs at 111 Hunter Street.
We're happy to have made it this far and would like to invite you to join in the celebrations in our BIRTHDAY PARTY exhibition.
The festivities will feature, among other things, a retrospective exhibition of past and present studio artists and exhibitors, entertainment from the likes of Casio Gloria, Drillbit, and Cock Safari, roving performances, live art demonstrations, a sensational art auction, and almost certainly CAKE.

Photomedia Mayhem Winners Announced

May 2010 saw us curate our first group prize exhibition, Photomedia Mayhem. We were lucky enough to gain three major sponsors with a total prize value of over $300. The exhibition saw twelve artists enter the prize, with a total number of five prizes won.

We would like to congratulate Sarah Veritisano for winning the major prize of a $100 voucher to Digital Camera Warehouse in Sydney. Sarah also won a $50 gift voucher from local Newcastle photography store King and Parry. Sarah's work was entered in the category of past/present/future and was well-received by all that visited the exhibition. Sarah is currently studying Photomedia at Sydney's College of Fine Art. You can see more of her work here: http://www.sarahversitano.com/

King and Parry were kind enough to donate two additional $50 vouchers. The second King and Parry winner Wednesday Sutherland won a voucher for her entry which was a series of three photographs, experimenting with traditional and digital technique. Wednesday is currently completing her HSC and you can see more of her work here: http://why4wednesday.deviantart.com/gallery/

Our third King and Parry winner, Joe Douglas, won with his work 'Lance looking back', a portrait of one of arthive collective members Lance Johnson. The work was a combined effort between Joe and Lance, Joe taking the photograph and Lance developing the photograph. You can see more of Joe's work here: http://dougy2040.deviantart.com/gallery/

Our third place prize winner, Jayde Nicholls, won the Les Porter prize for her series called 'When technology attacks'. Jayde is a current student from the University of Newcastle who is mad about all things photography. Jayde loves to experiment with traditional techniques and equipment and we hope she enjoys the prize pack from Les Porter which included traditional paper and ink jet paper.
