Background of Umbrella Studio
Umbrella Studio is an independent, not for profit organisation that generates and promotes the practice and awareness of contemporary art in North Queensland. Umbrella was established in 1986 as a working studio by a group of emerging Townsville artists. Umbrella Studio was the only artist-run initiative, and the first professional artist organisation north of Brisbane.
Since incorporating in the early 1990s, Umbrella offers practical studio based facilities, to a professionally managed contemporary arts organisation, with a regular annual program of exhibitions and public programs.
