COLOURS OF FRIEND­SHIP

Joondalup Times - - WHAT’S ON -

AN ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing at Joon­dalup Art Gallery this week cel­e­brates 30 years of friend­ship and artis­tic tal­ent in­spired by a love of colour.

Clare Yates, Carl Alt­mann and Mignon Smith first met at Alt­mann’s art his­tory classes at Carine Tafe in the 1990s.

They painted to­gether un­til Smith moved to Queens­land re­cently.

The Say it With Paint ex­hi­bi­tion is an eclec­tic col­lec­tion of their work and doc­u­ments their shared joy in colour and a friend­ship that has spanned decades.

Alt­mann en­cour­aged peo­ple to visit the com­mu­nity gallery in Cen­tral Walk dur­ing their ex­hi­bi­tion, which is open un­til April 28.

“There is no en­try fee and there is enough range in this ex­hi­bi­tion that al­most ev­ery­one will find a work that cap­ti­vates them,” he said.

“With many of our fine art gal­leries clos­ing in re­cent years, the role of com­mu­nity sup­ported gal­leries is in­creas­ingly im­por­tant for peo­ple who en­joy orig­i­nal art­works. Art has a great ca­pac­ity to en­rich our lives.”

The artists use a va­ri­ety of me­dia, in­clud­ing oils, acrylic, wa­ter­colours, inks, pas­tels, crayons and col­lage.

The gallery will be open Tues­days to Fri­days from 10.30am to 5pm. On week­ends it will be open from 1pm to 5pm.

Dun­craig artists Clare Yates and Carl Alt­mann.
