Link Artist Access Studio:

The Link Artist Access Studio building was originally part of the Goulburn Valley Milk company’s head quarters on the banks of the Murray River on the border causeway between Albury and Wodonga. The Studio was established by Lyn Plummer in 1985 and was shared by well known artist and colleague from Charles Sturt University, Tim Moorhead as well as providing studio space for up to 13 other local and regional artists during this period.

During the 1990’s, the studios arranged for funding from the British Council for residencies for English artists. They also initiated a number of important exhibitions. A vital connection with the community and its cultural involvement was reaffirmed by Link’s involvement with exhibition and workshops in Australia’s BiCentennial Exhibition in 1988 and also with the exhibition Initial Link ("Art as an issue of Place"), Albury Regional Art Gallery, NSW, 1989, which was curated by Lyn Plummer and involved some 26 artists who were associated with the studios.

The studios were approached by Tracey Moffatt to provide the venue for the shooting of the series Something More, in 1989. A number of Link artists were also closely involved with the fabrication of this project. They painted the backdrops, took the photos and were players in the “mini series”.
