Rick Molloy has always had a strong interest in art, which is now being expressed through his drawings, paintings and print works and has exhibited annually for more than ten years, either as part of a group exhibition or as a solo exhibitor.
Largely self taught, he has assisted the development of his skills through the completion of a number of courses dedicated to drawing and painting at the Linden Centre for Contemporary Art, St Kilda, Victoria and the Brisbane Institute of Art, Windsor, Queensland.
Additionally, he has completed a number of courses in printmaking at the Australian Print Workshop, Fitzroy, Victoria.
His most notable achievements were being awarded ‘Highly Commended’ at the 2016 Border Art Prize; a successful exhibition in 2015 with a fellow artist at the Lone Goat Gallery, Byron Bay, and in 2014 a solo exhibition at the NRCG, Ballina.
He have been the President of the Practicing Artists Network (PAN), a Byron Shire-based artist group, since 2011.
