Cole’s art adds class to fes­ti­val

Wanneroo Times - - News -

WA artist Char­main Cole’s work will light up the City of Joon­dalup’s ad­min­is­tra­tion build­ing dur­ing this week’s Kalei­do­scope Fes­ti­val.

Nine of her Noon­gar por­traits will be pro­jected on to the build­ing and tell a dream­time story voiced by El­der Joe Northover.

Her work fea­tures af­ter fes­ti­val di­rec­tor Drew An­thony chanced upon the Maranga­roo artist’s work at the Joon­dalup Art Gallery dur­ing a Naidoc Week ex­hi­bi­tion.

He popped into the gallery only 10 min­utes be­fore the doors closed and was overwhelmed by the in­ten­sity Cole’s work. Their sub­se­quent meet­ing gave birth to One Voice, in­volv­ing the pro­jec­tion of nine of Cole’s works.
