Art at the heart of community for Northern Beaches agency

Art at the heart of community for Northern Beaches agency

A Northern Beaches-based agency has married goodwill and art in their recently launched creative space.

Husband-and-wife duo Matt and Amy Young of Laing+Simmons Young Property are seeing a raft of benefits from their recently opened space, The Studio.

The Studio is a community-focused hybrid creative space located in Avalon and allows the agency to feature exhibitions of different local artists on a monthly basis, while supporting community groups and charities.

Most recently, the non-profit community initiative raised $3,335 in partnership with local artists Gemma Rasdall and Owen Crick. Those funds have been donated to youth mental health charity One Eighty.

“We feel privileged to work with local artists at The Studio and play a role in helping local organisations whose work makes a tangible difference in the lives of people and in the places we value,” Ms Young commented.

This May, The Studio will be home to the works of local watercolour artist Leah Ramage, with her exhibition all set to benefit the Seabin Project.

The Seabin Project tackles the global issue of marine littering by implementing a whole solution approach using education, science, technology and community activation — ultimately aiming for a world without the need for seabins.

Through her art, Ms Ramage has sought to blend design with education, highlighting the simple beauty of nature and the ocean while also educating people on animal and environmental sustainability.

“I hope that my artworks and the message behind them have the power to make people act,” the artist said.

Ms Young has expressed her support for Ms Ramage’s advocacy, and flags synergies with Laing+Simmons Young Property’s decision to go forward with an entirely paperless operation.

“Leah’s passion for the environment is infectious and she captures this passion beautifully in her watercolour works,” she said.

“We think Northern Beaches locals will really respond to her inspiring collection.”

Other beneficiaries of The Studio have included Dreams2Live4, Sea Shepherd Australia and Living Ocean.
