MID­LAND Junc­tion Arts Cen­tre will ex­hibit work by more than 150 artists sup­ported through a com­mu­nity group for peo­ple with a dis­abil­ity or men­tal ill­ness.

DADAA’s an­nual In Fo­cus ex­hi­bi­tion in April will fea­ture art­work from in­spired be­gin­ners to ex­pe­ri­enced cre­atives well known in the com­mu­nity, with most of the artists from the eastern re­gion around Mid­land.

The in­clu­sive ex­hi­bi­tion will see a col­lec­tion of un­usual ob­jects trans­formed into new it­er­a­tions WHAT: In Fo­cus ex­hi­bi­tion WHERE: Mid­land Junc­tion Arts Cen­tre WHEN: April 5- 20 of ‘ the can­vas’ cu­rated by par­tic­i­pat­ing artists with the sup­port of DADAA staff.

Ev­ery­thing from tea­spoons, clay and felt to an­i­ma­tion, skate decks and pa­per­bark will be in fo­cus, along with two large- scale col­lab­o­ra­tive works by artists in part­ner­ship with Fi­brant’s Joyce Tasma and DADAA’s Dim­ity Greg­son.

Artist Kate­lyn Mur­phy said her cre­ativ­ity had evolved.

“When I was nine years old, I de­vel­oped epilepsy and since then I have used paint­ing and pot­tery to ex­press my feel­ing and show my cre­ative side,” she said.

Free work­shops for mixed abil­i­ties in model mak­ing and Ja­panese Shi­bori dye­ing will run on April 18 and 20.
