Latest project fans artists' creativity
Wednesday, 27th March, 2013
Gaara Arts have taken to pushing their boundaries and using different mediums in their most recent exhibition.
The "Common Threads, The Things That Bind Us Together" exhibition will be opened by Fay Attard and will run from March 30 to May 12 at the Regional Art Gallery.
"The ladies in Gaara Arts have been working hard to paint, or otherwise decorate, a range of fans which are now on display at the Gallery," Gaara Arts President Robyn Taylor said.
"The creativity and talent within the group is wonderful although some of the artists saw the concept as a bit daunting, at first. The results are great."
"It is a lovely exhibition and everything is so different," Robyn said.
"We are encouraging everyone to come and see it."
Robyn is from a property near White Cliffs and divides her time between working in Broken Hill and her various art projects.
"I've always been interested in art," she said. "I'm interested in trying all forms of art. Lead Lighting, intaglio, lino prints and coloured inks; I've dabbled in them all.
"Mainly though, I enjoy painting in a realistic style in acrylics - mostly landscapes.
"Although I may have to stretch my skills towards portraiture for another Gaara exhibition in the near future."
Broadening the experiences and skills of women artists who live in the area is an aim of Gaara which has been operating since 2008.
