A wonderful new exhibition opened on the weekend at the Blue Knob Hall Gallery which saw plenty of traffic even though it was a cold Friday evening.
The exhibition is called A Place of Dreams and is a collaboration of local artists who are very multi-talented. There a wide range of media used in this exhibition
‘It’s always great to see our regular artists contribute’, said curator Ali Walker. ‘I love Linnie Lambrechtsen’s work in black and white and I always look forward to seeing Robin Moore’s felt work.
‘It’s also always nice to see new artists to the gallery, this time we have a piece from Damien Moss which is absolutely stunning.’
Ali says this are approximately 70 pieces on display from around 30 artists.
As well as the main exhibition, the Moore Workshop Space currently has a side photographic exhibition by the aged community (over 50s) called Snapshot of the Community, featuring lovely images of what community means to the artists.
Artist in residence Heather Kimber handed over to award-winning author Stephen Wright to open the exhibition.
‘I am really happy to be opening this exhibition on the theme of dreams’, said Wright before going on to talk about the apparent strangeness of dreams. ‘Dreams have been something that have been on my mind a lot on the past couple of years.
‘One of the things I was thinking about is, you know when someone tells you about their dream? They always start off by saying, “I had a strange dream last night”, as though most dreams weren’t strange…’
A Place of Dreams is open at the Blue Knob Hall Gallery until Sunday September 24.
