There is an extensive community of creative practitioners that surrounds the Brooklyn Arts Hotel. The building has thrived on creative conversations, creations and happenings from this community over the years.

This collection of eclectic individuals has come together to celebrate the bittersweet last drop of Brooklyn. There are some old relationships, some new and hopefully still some to come.

ALEXANDER ALBRECHT


Melbourne improviser, Alex Albrecht modernises the classic jazz format while walking ambient music through the rainforest and down to the shore. Absorbing Australia’s landscape to craft enlightened, on the fly performances that are never to be missed and never to be repeated.

All material is recorded in a live, improvised manner and looks towards more dancefloor-oriented sounds.










AMY SIMPSON


Amy Simpson is a Melbourne based glass artist and designer who adapts a traditional technique and concept of leadlighting, purposely revived it for a contemporary setting, and in curated spaces. Glass and its vibrance speaks for itself, yet Amy is captivated by the colours and possession of light that glass beholds. 

These leadlight artworks are part of an ongoing body of work aimed at exploring the interactions between light, form, and abstraction. The bold nature of line, colour, and texture inherent in lead line work, marries beautifully with the cubist and hard-edged style of abstraction that Amy is inspired by.










BEN SHEPHERD-BARRON


Ben Shepherd-Barron is an animator and artist currently studying at Kingston School of Art, London. They use their studies to explore gender, sexuality, and masculinity through drawing and animation primarily. Humour is a key aspect of their work to make these topics less inaccessible. With burly and bulbous characters in bright environments Ben creates exaggerated moments mimicking and mocking aspects of our own world. The simple use of line and shape allows the images to be read by any audience and the colour is added second to make the work more attention-grabbing.











BONNITA GILLARD


In a career spanning two decades, Bonnita Gillard’s artwork is most recognised through sculpture, specifically mask making. Recently Bonnita has been exploring the relationship between abstract figurative painting, archetypal mythology and she refers to this body as work as “Other worldly Pleasures”. Bonnita’s art work can be found in many private collections, album cover designs, murals & textiles collections.
