Plenty to ‘sea’ at art ex­hi­bi­tion

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS -

WA­ROONA’s Sea to Art Ex­hi­bi­tion of­fi­cially opened late last month cel­e­brat­ing 10 years of dis­play­ing the di­ver­sity, ta­lent and colour of the re­gion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was opened on Oc­to­ber 27 with 110 works on dis­play in paint­ing, wood­work, tex­tiles, sculp­ture and mixed me­dia.

Wa­roona Vis­i­tor Cen­tre man­ager Tracy Goldswor­thy said the night was ter­rific with about 130 peo­ple hav­ing at­tended.

Ms Goldswor­thy said about 40 artists con­trib­uted works for the ex­hi­bi­tion, the ma­jor­ity of which were for sale.

“Sales were strong on the night but there’s still plenty there,” she said.

An ad­di­tional 60 works formed the Red, Black and White sec­tion which were on sale to raise money for the Wa­roona St John Am­bu­lance.

On the open­ing night alone more than $600 was raised for St John with a num­ber of works still avail­able.

Ma­ree El­lis, Sarah Robert­son and Chris­tine Hyde, who were in­te­gral to the foun­da­tion of the ex­hi­bi­tion, cut the cake to cel­e­brate the ex­hi­bi­tion’s 10th year.

Ms Goldswor­thy said peo­ple should come down to the cen­tre to view the ex­hi­bi­tion while they can, with a new for­mat set to be in­tro­duced next year.

In 2018, the event will be a quilt­ing and fabric ex­hi­bi­tion with the art ex­hi­bi­tion re­turn­ing on al­ter­nate years from 2019.

“Peo­ple who want to see the ex­hi­bi­tion need to get in quick,” Ms Goldswor­thy said.
