Artists pool tal­ents to make de­but splash

Southern Telegraph - - Entertainment - Chloe Fraser

Six lo­cal artists will dis­play their art­work in an ex­hi­bi­tion ti­tled Learn­ing Curve at the Rock­ing­ham Re­gional Arts Cen­tre next week.

The artists, some who have been paint­ing for sev­eral months and oth­ers sev­eral years, will each dis­play 10 ab­stract and mixed me­dia-style pieces of art­work.

Jakie Croall said it would be the first time the com­mu­nity arts group had put their work on dis­play.

“There are not many places you can show off your work and even sell your work, so it’s an op­por­tu­nity to get ours out there in Rock­ing­ham,” she said.

“I love us­ing colours and I do a lot of pour­ing paint . . . it’s amaz­ing all the things you can ac­tu­ally see (in the paint­ing).”

Artist Anne Hick said while she chose to cre­ate ab­stract art on can­vas, the group had dif­fer­ent styles, dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions and of­ten used dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als to ex­press them­selves.

“What I find in­ter­est­ing about ab­stract is you’re not just copy­ing a scene, you have to look at it a bit longer . . . it’s about colours and the bal­ance of colours.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion will run from

2-5pm on Tues­day, Novem­ber 6,

10am to 8pm on Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7 and 10am to 5pm on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 8 at the Rock­ing­ham Re­gional Arts Cen­tre. All paint­ings will be avail­able for pur­chase.
