Isis Town and Country - - Life - By ED­WINA KELLY

CHILDERS Arts Space was awash with black and white on Fri­day evening with the open­ing of its lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion, Black and White.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures art­works from lo­cal com­bined art groups – Bund­aberg Art So­ci­ety, the Childers Arts Coun­cil Visual Artists and the Gin Gin and Dis­trict Fine Arts So­ci­ety.

Artists were chal­lenged to cre­ate work for this ex­hi­bi­tion based on a re­stricted colour pal­ette of black and white and all tonal shades in be­tween us­ing a wide range of medi­ums and ma­te­ri­als.

Artists from the three groups will hold a Meet the Maker event ev­ery Satur­day morn­ing in the gallery from 9am to noon, so come in to the gallery to see how they cre­ate their mas­ter­pieces.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til May 10.

Childers Quil­ters Inc is hold­ing a Show and Tell on Tues­day, April 14 at the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre from 8.30am. Quilts must be reg­is­tered by 9.30am.

Pro­gres­sive raf­fles and door prizes are on of­fer. Ad­mis­sion is $7, which in­cludes morn­ing tea and lunch.

Childers Arts Space will hold a chil­dren’s work­shop at the gallery on Thurs­day, April 16 from 10am to 12pm.

Mak­ing Col­lage Mas­ter­pieces will be con­ducted by Mar­lies Oak­ley, who will demon­strate the use of col­lage tech­niques to cre­ate artist trad­ing cards, which are minia­ture works of art sim­i­lar in size to a play­ing card. Across the world there is an artist trad­ing card move­ment that orig­i­nated with the Swiss artist Vanci Stirne­mann.

Cards are pro­duced in dry me­dia such as pens and pen­cils, wet me­dia such as wa­ter­colour and acrylic paints and pa­per me­dia such as pa­per­cuts and found ob­jects.

The cards are usu­ally traded or ex­changed. The work­shop is open to ages eight to 16 years and costs $8 per par­tic­i­pant. Phone the gallery on 4130 4876 to re­serve your place.
