Don Quixote inspires art ex­hibit

Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS -

An army of giants is go­ing to in­vade the Can­nery Arts Cen­tre in Esper­ance next week.

Tilt­ing at Wind­mills, a new Art on the Move ex­hi­bi­tion, will open at the arts cen­tre next week, with a va­ri­ety of 3D art pieces to de­but from next Fri­day un­til July 26.

The ex­hi­bi­tion takes its name from an in­ci­dence in the 17th cen­tury Span­ish novel Don Quixote, in which the main char­ac­ter mis­takes wind­mills for giants and charges forth to do bat­tle with them.

Tak­ing the theme of mis­com­mu­ni­ca­tion, artist Denise V Brown has cre­ated a num­ber of pieces ex­plor­ing the frus­tra­tion and iso­la­tion that can re­sult from an in­abil­ity to un­der­stand those around us.
