The third Moira Arts and Cul­ture Inc. Art Fest pro­duced many a new-found tal­ents and a col­lec­tion of prized pieces in a wide range of artis­tic forms.

Art Fest 2018 kicked-off on Fri­day, Septem­ber 21 with an in­for­mal artists chat with work­shops run­ning over Satur­day and Sun­day and some 20 work­shops on of­fer.

This year’s for­mat in­cluded a free Art Show on the Satur­day evening which fea­tured work from tu­tors and artists from across the re­gion.

Art Fest Co­or­di­na­tor Karyn Day thanked the many tal­ented tu­tors who par­tic­i­pated in the week­end for their will­ing­ness to share their artis­tic ex­pres­sions and im­part their knowl­edge with those who were ea­ger to learn new skills.

“We were ex­tremely for­tu­nate to be able to draw on qual­ity artists from a range of artis­tic forms and tap into a well-es­tab­lished knowl­edge and skill base,” she said.

The week­end long event of­fered cre­ative tasters and work­shops in al­most 20 ar­eas which in­cluded ev­ery­thing from pot­tery, mo­saics, and felt­ing to tin lid paint­ing, resin art, pen­cil draw­ing and more.

“We re­ally did have some­thing for ev­ery­one on of­fer, with the aim of Art Fest be­ing to cre­ate an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to come along and try their hand at some­thing they oth­er­wise may not be able to ex­plore,” Ms Day said.

“Art Fest is one of the many events on the MAC Inc. cal­en­dar which cul­ti­vates cre­ative ex­pres­sion and ex­plo­ration, pro­vid­ing an op­por­tu­nity to en­joy arts and cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ences with­out the need to travel out­side the Shire.”

Ms Day also thanked all those who sup­ported the event, whether it was through shar­ing their skill and tal­ent, par­tic­i­pat­ing in a work­shop or as­sist­ing be­hind the scenes.
