Guildhouse Advice Bank responds to demand for tailored, one-on-one advice from small creative businesses. Teamed with a workshop or information sessions, the Advice Bank model allows practitioners to have 45 minutes with an industry expert to workshop/ troubleshoot/refine a specific business or career development issue. We know businesses gain maximum value and momentum when they have the opportunity to follow up on individual issues with relevant professionals.

In this session Tony Rosella, an established artist with over 25 years of practice, will be available to give advice pertaining to his experience in Public Art.

Tony is currently working as a dedicated professional artist, sculptor and metalworker working mainly in the areas of public art, commissioned based projects and creating his own works. His formal training commenced in 1984 at North Adelaide School of Art along with woodwork and blacksmithing technical courses. He then undertook a BAFA at Sydney College of the Arts. Tony also has a Diploma of Education and an Engineering mechanical qualification (Fitting and Turning).

Tony has been self-employed for 25 years, originally his work focused mainly on wrought iron, unique metal design objects and sculpture, this included several solo exhibitions. Progressively he reshaped his practice to incorporate his sculptural roots/ training and have collaborated on, designed and constructed more significant commercial and public works.

Tony is a founding member of George St Studios, a commercial collaborative studio from which he currently operates. This unique professional, commercial facility has facilitated many major projects and works as an artistic creative collaborative hub that supports the creation of significant works.

Each appointment is 45 minutes and we will contact you to confirm your specific time.
