Art, big and small, on show

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE Pres­by­te­rian Ladies' Col­lege Old Col­le­gians’ As­so­ci­a­tion art ex­hi­bi­tion has given former stu­dent Jes­samy Burton a chance to ex­pand as an artist.

The 2012 grad­u­ate and Cottesloe res­i­dent will ex­hibit her minia­ture art­work fea­tur­ing row­ers on the river this month, along with more than 60 artists.

“Last year I ex­hib­ited larger art­work as well as do­ing the minia­tures,” she said. “I don’t usu­ally do minia­tures but they are easy to whip to­gether.

“I think they are a great idea be­cause peo­ple who want to sup­port the old col­le­gians and come to the ex­hibit make a smaller pur­chase and get a re­ally nice piece of art­work.”

Louise Far­nay, an in­ter­na­tional ex­hibit­ing vet­eran of 20 years, will also ex­hibit her art­work fea­tur­ing birds and the beach.

“I’ve al­ways worked with oil and kind of mixed me­dia; I put some resin on this time,” she said. “I am very much a lover of the beach and swim­ming.

“With my birds art­work, I painted these in City Beach where there are birds all around.”

Ms Far­nay de­scribed her work at last year’s ex­hibit as “big­ger and darker” than this year.

“This is more colour­ful and more fun, pretty loose,” she said.

Hun­dreds of art­works in this year’s ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play in the new Se­nior School foyer from May 13-15 and will con­sist of a se­lec­tion of sculp­ture, pho­tog­ra­phy, paint­ings, jew­ellery and glass­ware, with all items for sale.

Tick­ets are now avail­able for the cock­tail event open­ing night on Fri­day, May 13 at the early bird price of $40 at www.try­book­

Tick­ets are also avail­able at the door for $45.

The ex­hi­bi­tion con­tin­ues through­out the week­end from 10am–4pm with en­try by gold coin do­na­tion.
