What We Do

The Margaret Freeman Gallery is a space where artists who have disabilities can publicly display their artwork in a professional manner. Our Gallery adjoins Studio2, a creative space where artists with disabilities are supported to produce art, achieve personal creative goals and develop their own artistic styles. We currently work with 38 Dunedin artists each week.

The Margaret Freeman Artists derive a large amount of social value from placing art in the public arena – doing so connects artists to the community and breaks down barriers/discrimination between marginalised communities and the wider public.



How You Can Help

Studio2 and the Margaret Freeman Gallery receive no government funding and we are facing a funding shortfall. Unfortunately this may mean we have to reduce the amount of support we are able to give Dunedin artists.

Our goal is to raise $2500 which will help cover general running costs like rent, electricity and quality materials for presenting our artists' work.

We would also greatly value donations of quality art materials such as paints, brushes and canvasses.


Rewards

We are offering a range of rewards, including cards, paper works and canvases by the artists who Studio2 and the Margaret Freeman Gallery support. 

We are also very excited that the the family of New Zealand artist Susan Te Kahurangi King has generously donated 5 limited edition, individually numbered copies of Susan's Comic - a collection of her striking work and childhood photographs.

The comic can be viewed at http://susanking.co.nz - just click on 'Comic.' Susan and her artwork featured in the 2012 New Zealand Film Festival's "Pictures of Susan."
