jacqueline houghton

A graduate of Sydney’s National Art School with degree in Art Education, Jacquie’s early experience as both an exhibiting artist and visual arts teacher at Secondary and Tertiary levels, resulted in an invitation to participate in federally-funded programmes in Alice Springs and Broome which introduced members of the indigenous population to the use of contemporary materials and methods of art practice.

Jacquie assists with mentoring our emerging artists and liaising with our more established artists in the preparation of a great number of solo exhibitions. Jacquie also assists with the writing of our exhibition essays, and assisting our artists with their CVs, prize submissions, press releases and invitations.
