A captivating & skillful collection of recent works by a dedicated group of Bega Valley Art Students. Spiral Gallery proudly offers this exhibition of works exploring style, execution, colour & media, as an opportunity to showcase new & exciting up-&-coming local artists.
‘Recognition’ is about sharing with the community the talent and hard work of a fabulous bunch of dedicated adult students.
They have been exploring a diverse range of media and developing their skills and it was time for them to ‘come out’ of the studio and have the opportunity to showcase their work. This opportunity also provides the necessary experience in the ins and outs of putting on a show – a valuable addition to their artists ‘tool box’.
The artists are from Danielle Pirrie’s small classes that meet weekly throughout the term, all of whom come with a rich wealth of life experience, and a diverse range and levels of past art experience. All share a passion for the enrichment and challenge art brings to their lives. They have built a community, support, friendships and fun around their work and Danielle finds this a beautiful and sustaining thing.
Rachel Annabel, Trish Collings, Nadia Geoghegan, Diane Fraser, Fay Pearce, Daniele Sartorel, Lenore Thompson, Joan Wicks, Bill Wilson and Sharon Woszczieko.
Danielle comments “It’s really exciting I find, for students to have the opportunity to exhibit their work in a formal art space. It is one thing to view your work with a critical eye in the studio, and an entirely different experience to see it presented on the walls of a gallery.”
