Rutherglen Artist Studio

Bpangerang Country

Glenda Mackay



Set amongst gum trees in a private garden, our artistic client’s new studio will be a light filled place to produce work with flexibility, exhibit and share their art practise.

After years of working in a shed in the back of her garden, Glenda approached us to design a new studio that would allow more flexibility to produce work and allow for her to have exhibitions or small workshops to share her knowledge with others.

In contrast to the existing workshop, natural light was to be maximised along with expanses of walls for stappling large sheets of paper onto and a flexible open plan for whatever the future holds for Glenda’s creative practise.

After delays due to Covid19, the studio is expected to be built by the end of 2022 and we can’t wait to see the work that Glenda produces in her new creative space.


We acknowledge the Bpangerang, Wiradjuri, Jaitmatang, Yorta Yorta and Waveroo people on whose country we work and create. ​We also acknowledge the Traditional Custodians throughout Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander lands where our projects are placed. We recognise their ongoing connection to Country, land and waters that were never ceded and pay our respects to Elders, past, present and emerging. Our Reconciliation Action Plan was developed with Reconciliation Australia and guides us on our reconciliation journey and that of our clients, collaborators and community.
