Introducing Loni Mills and Meredith Macleod

How do you take a 10-20 minute life drawing sketch and turn it into a finished work of art? We have an exhibition coming up in June at Bunya House and we need to know!

This is the first of the exciting Art Exchange series:

Two Brisbane artists, Loni Mills and Meredith Macleod will inspire and spark us out of our familiar drawing ‘habits’, showing examples of their work and describing their process. Both artists have been doing regular life drawing for years. In their practice they both arrived at the cross roads of having a storage problem with a tower of drawings and wanting to do something more creative with them. They now use life drawing as a generative space, to create beautiful work that they exhibit and sell.

Following the Artist’s Talks, we’ll set up a conversation circle for each artist where you can sit with them in a small group, showing an example or two of your work, and seeking their input on what you could do next. You’ll then have the chance to swap artists.

In between, there will be a break to give them a chance to rest before the next circle, and for all of us to enjoy some delicious nibblies.

Find out:

  • how to extend your work
  • how to prepare your work for an exhibition…
  • And if you don’t feel ready for an exhibition yet, come along for the creative exchange and inspiration.

What to bring

Bring a couple of examples of your work if you would like some input. This should ideally be protected within a plastic sleeve, if it is a work on paper.

If you prefer to bring your artwork on a device, please make sure you have the images ready to show so that we don’t lose time flicking through a dozen albums to find them. A tablet or laptop would be better than a phone for this purpose.


Monday evening 26 March

6.30pm- 9pm


Tea, coffee and nibblies provided – let me know if you have dietary restrictions in the registration form below.

If you would like to enjoy a civilised glass of something, please byo.
