About the program:
Michael Reid Studio Direct was originally conceived in late 2018 as an online platform to connect emerging artists with collectors outside of the traditional gallery context. Fast forward 2 years, and the program has expanded and evolved to become a robust, highly sought-after curated experience for the best-of emerging art in Australia.
After the recent opening of our new gallery premise in Sydney’s Newport, Studio Direct has taken on a more ‘bricks and mortar’ presence – and so from 2021 Studio Direct will simply be known as ‘Michael Reid Northern Beaches’, home to high quality, collectible emerging art.
Michael Reid Northern Beaches will also be the home to Clay, Michael Reid’s ceramic arts offering.
Both programs are curated and directed by Amber Creswell Bell. Amber is passionate about finding talented artists ahead of pack, and works with these emerging artists to present a new body of work every fortnight in our Michael Reid Northern Beaches gallery and online.
