2 New Properties, 3 New Projects (with another 2 on the way!)

Renew Newcastle welcomes three new projects to two new properties, plus there’s another two more projects in the wings. Be sure to check out every one of them on Open Day, Saturday 29 March.

140308-Stepping-Stone-Open-Studios-pcMelissaWilson-27 Stepping Stone Studios is located in the former Go-Lo site on the Mall in Market Square. This huge site has been divided amongst nine local artists of all ages, mediums and backgrounds. The space will serve as a ‘stepping stone’ between study and ‘the real world’, helping the artists to gain first-hand experience in making and selling their art.

MBR-Project-Thumbnail Local design duo Jodi & Raz O'Connor, aka Made by Ronnoco, are spreading their wings, departing creative collective The Roost Creative for their own digs at 23 Wolfe St, right next door to Jimmy Figg’s Bareknuckle Barber. Their client base for brand identity and web/print design includes Good Eye Deer, Clever Lab and MoneyPenny.

jonreid-20131030_Honeysuckle Joining them is accomplished commercial and architectural photographer Jon Reid under the studio name Sharperstill. You may recall Jon’s exhibition ‘Predominantly Orange’ which showed last September exhibited at Darcy + Rose. It was ‘possibly the most comprehensive photographic survey of safety cones ever’ and has been made available in book form. Jon will use his studio mostly for post-production of client work. Keep up to date on his personal photography at www.huntershooter.com.au

20140306_161021 Long-time friends of Renew might recall the corner space on the mezzanine level in Market Square previously occupied by Mad Hatter Millinery and Little Papercup. Well, come Wednesday 26 March it will be home to two new projects. Sara Spence is Dubbleyou creator of homewares. Sue Dawes is Süko, creator of original art. Together as Dubbleyou + Süko they will divide the space into three areas, a gallery, studio and shop. That is, right after they finish the ‘fixing up’ part…check out the video of the process so far. Top job ladies! You’re nearly there!!
