Artists to make a splash

Southern Telegraph - - News - Hay­ley God­dard

Rock­ing­ham artists have ex­plored their cre­ative minds to pro­duce works to the theme of Girt by Sea for a pop-up ex­hi­bi­tion this week­end.

Rock­ing­ham Re­gional Arts pres­i­dent Lorri Skin­ner in­vited res­i­dents to at­tend the ex­hi­bi­tion, which opens at the Rock­ing­ham Arts Cen­tre on Fri­day, and see how its mem­bers in­ter­preted the theme.

“Girt by Sea is about Aus­tralia and the sea, but it will be in­ter­est­ing to see how the cre­ative process has un­folded,” she said.

“It was de­signed to stim­u­late cre­ativ­ity.”

Sec­re­tary Beth Law said at­ten­dees could also get cre­ative on the Sun­day if they wanted by tak­ing part in a col­lage work­shop.

“Fun with Col­lage is a great way to use up your mag­a­zines but it’s also a great way of ex­plor­ing colour, shape and tex­ture,” she said.

“It’s an old tech­nique which in­volves torn pa­per, not photos, merged to­gether.

“Once done, you can get in­spi­ra­tion from sec­tions to cre­ate paint­ings — it’s a way of stim­u­lat­ing ideas.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion opens on Fri­day at 6.30pm and runs from 9.30am to 4pm, Satur­day to Mon­day.

The col­lage work­shop, for a gold coin do­na­tion, runs from 9am to 11am.
