Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS - David Charlesworth

CON­TEM­PO­RARY art work high­lighted the re­gion’s tal­ent at the open­ing of the Eden Grove Com­mu­nity Precinct’s first art ex­hi­bi­tion, hosted by South West Com­mu­nity Care.

Har­vey shire pres­i­dent Ta­nia Jack­son of­fi­cially opened the Eden Art Ex­hi­bi­tion on April 6, where seven artists from across the shire dis­played their work, some well known and oth­ers new to the scene.

Cass Roes­ner, Stella Wal­lace, Yvonne Chap­man, Sharon Hinch­liffe, Colleen Mar­tin and Christina Den­ton dis­played about 60 pieces across pho­tog­ra­phy, painting, quilt­ing, sculp­ture, jew­ellery, resin cast­ing and other medi­ums.

Danae Saltieri, from Flow­ers by Danae, cre­ated flower ar­range­ments dis­played around the ex­hi­bi­tion.

South West Com­mu­nity Care chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Claire Roach said it was the fa­cil­ity’s first ex­hi­bi­tion and show­cased lo­cal artists and ar­ti­sans.

“The flavour is con­tem­po­rary rather than tra­di­tional or land­scapes,” she said.

“I’m re­ally happy that we’ve got an op­por­tu­nity to pro­mote art and cul­ture in the com­mu­nity, it’s won­der­ful to be a spon­sor of that.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open to the pub­lic un­til April 24, from 9am to 4pm in the Eden Grove Man­ning Func­tion Cen­tre.
