Art can be a messy experience and it’s not just the materials that can get that way. Exploring yourself, ideas and developing your artistic skills can be both a challenging and rewarding experience.

The Byron School of Art’s (BSA) third year graduating artists are launching themselves into the world this Friday 6–8pm at the BSA Project Space in Dalley Street, Mullumbimby with their graduation show Dance This Mess Around and they are asking you to come and enjoy their exhibition and join them in their celebration.

‘The title of the exhibition, Dance This Mess Around, manages to convey something about the complex, sometimes joyful and frequently difficult process of learning how to become an artist,’ BSA Teacher Emma Walker says.

‘They have all challenged themselves by investigating materials and techniques as well as developing the capacity to think creatively. The results of this sometimes messy dance are works of great depth that are rich with meaning and demonstrate each artist’s commitment and ability to push, explore and persevere.’

The exhibition will be running from 10am to 2pm, Monday to Saturday at the BSA Project Space, 112 Dalley Street, Mullumbimby until 17 December.
