A group of visual arts students at Murwillumbah TAFE showing their work at a pop-up gallery in Kingscliff next weekend say their exhibition will have wide appeal to anyone concerned with justice, beauty or the environment.
Gail Alexander, Gina Toole, and Judy Collins-Haynes, students of the Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts will exhibit their final year’s work in the exhibition entitled ‘Uncovered’ at Suite 7, Zo Building, Kingscliff, corner of Turnock and Pearl Streets, from next Friday 30 October till Sunday 1 November from 10am-4pm (NSW time).
The non-profit community event will be opened by well known Tweed sculptor and ceramic artist, Catherine Lane,.
Ms Collins-Haynes said ‘guests can expect a thought provoking visual feast and will have the opportunity to meet the artists and find out what motivates and drives their passion’.
‘Each of the artists featured in this exhibition concerns themselves with more than meets the eye,’ she said.
‘Gail Alexander’s sculptures expose the effect of domestic violence, a subject that is currently receiving long overdue media attention.
‘Gina Toole’s oil paintings shine light on beauty seldom noticed in the nightscape because it is so familiar no-one bothers to pay it any attention.
‘My eco prints unearth the permanent and irreversible entanglement of human activity in the natural world.’
