The Studio is the Gallery’s hands-on space where art lovers of all ages can participate in creative activities associated with the exhibition program. 

For the exhibition  Versus Rodin: Bodies across space and time, The Studio is transformed into a playful panorama of plinths. Come in and create mixed-media figurative sculptures exploring scale, proportion, movement and emotion.

From Rodin's refusal to use traditional plinths (he sometimes used antiquities and found objects as bases for his sculptures) through to hand-carved, mirrored and textured plinths that function as works of art in their own right, artists have constantly challenged our ideas about art and the best ways to display it.  The plinth, as idea and object, provides the starting point for The Studio's current activities.
