Four local artists have banded together to bring the historic Cawongla Community Centre building near Kyogle back to life through art. They are now using the front two rooms as a workshop and exhibition space.
‘We started a couple of months ago,’ said Linda Frylink Anderson who is co-ordinating the group.
They recently held a successful opening with live music on the verandah, food and drinks to celebrate the opening of the art space.
‘It was so successful, people kept pouring in the doors,’ said Linda enthusiastically.
‘For Clare, her first exhibition it was a great success with many works sold. We are proud that Cawongla Art Studio is now a lovely space for locals and passers by to enjoy.’
The four artists, Yvonne Preston, Linda Frylink Anderson, Janette Faircloth and Clare Ennew use a mixture of mediums from lithographs, painting and mixed media to mosaics. The Cawongla Art Studio open Tuesdays 9-3pm, Saturday and Sunday 11-4pm.
They have also started a fortnightly drawing workshop from 10-12 at a cost of $10, the next class is on Tuesday October 24. Mosaic and painting workshops are also being planned for 2018.
