Happy New Year & Welcome 2016!

After nearly four years of passionate and dedicated service to the Hahndorf Academy, Director Kate Wake left us at the end of 2015. A big THANK YOU! to Kate for her passion, ideas and contributions to the Academy during her time with us and we wish her the very best for her future endeavours.

We’re delighted to let you know that Rachel McElwee has taken over the responsibility of driving the Academy forward into 2016 as Acting Director. Rachel isn't a new face  - she was previously Retail Manager and therefore understands the Academy, our customers, our artists and supporters. We wish her every success.   

A big welcome to Naomi Pointon who joins us as the Academy Shop Retail Manager. Naomi's bright and bubbly personality fills the shop with energy and she is a wonderful asset to the team. Check out both Rachel and Naomi's profiles on the staff page

The first exhibition opening of 2016 "Synthetic Biotica" kicked off with a bang, with many members, locals and visitors coming along to see Joanna and Eddie's vibrant laser-cut perspex sculptures and kaleidoscopic pictures. Come along to the first exhibition of the year, which is on display until Sunday, February 7th.
