The new year brought some changes to Artsource, as we farewelled old staff and welcomed new ones to our busy office.

At the end of 2018 we said goodbye to Elli Gemmo, our wonderful Membership Development Coordinator, as she moved on to her next great opportunity. More recently we were sad to see Mary Peck, our Membership Services Manager, leave Artsource after three years with the organisation. However we are also excited to present the new faces of Artsource, bringing fresh expertise and energy to their roles. Read more below about the current Artsource staff and their positions.

Contact Leah from Monday to Thursday for queries regarding studio leases and maintenance, as well as insurance and leasing artwork.

Rose Barton

Rose joined Artsource in September 2018 as an intern and since January 2019 has been welcoming visitors to the front desk as our Membership and Marketing Assistant. For queries regarding marketing and advertising opportunities, newsletters, Artsource membership and subscriptions, Fremantle maintenance, artist details or general queries contact Rose from Monday to Thursday.
