THE Mid­land Junc­tion Arts Cen­tre will show­case the an­nual In Fo­cus art ex­hi­bi­tion this month, fea­tur­ing two free work­shops for as­pir­ing artists.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, which is sup­ported by the City of Swan and DADDAA staff, is on un­til April 20 and will be cu­rated by par­tic­i­pat­ing artists.

This year, artists are re­defin­ing the tra­di­tional idea of a can­vas by trans­form­ing un­usual ob­jects to com­mu­ni­cate their artis­tic ideas, which has been cre­ated in the form of ev­ery­thing from tea­spoons, clay and felt to an­i­ma­tion, skate decks and pa­per­bark.

City of Swan Mayor David Lu­cas said the ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tured more than 80 artists, who var­ied from in­spired be­gin­ners to well-known cre­atives.

“I’m very ex­cited to see most of the artists live around Mid­land and the eastern re­gion, and can’t wait to see what they’ve come up with,” he said.
