Artists draw on in­spir­ing out­back jour­ney

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion to show at Childers Arts Space is ti­tled Cen­tre­fold, fea­tur­ing the tal­ents of lo­cal artists Alice McLaugh­lin and Kym Connell.

Cen­tre­fold’s open­ing event was held last Fri­day evening in front of an ex­cited crowd.

Lo­cal artists and vis­i­tors strolled the gallery ad­mir­ing the pair’s work.

Alice and Kym are both well-known artists in our re­gion and Cen­tre­fold is the re­sult of a six-week ad­ven­ture to Cen­tral Aus­tralia in 2013.

The tal­ented artists were in­spired by the colours and the var­i­ous land­scapes they en­coun­tered on their jour­ney.

Alice McLaugh­lin said it was won­der­ful to un­der­take the trip to­gether.

“We each re­sponded quite dif­fer­ently to the land­scape,” she said.

“It was great to have some­one to bounce ideas off while away, and when we ar­rived home.”

Since they re­turned, the pair have pro­duced nu­mer­ous art pieces re­flect­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence of their artis­tic jour­ney.

“Our jour­ney has been a con­tin­ual source of in­spi­ra­tion for nearly three years now,” Alice said.

Kym Connell said they were so glad they made the trip as it had given them an on­go­ing source of ma­te­rial for their work.

Their art will be on show at Childers Art Space un­til May 29.
