Held in the scenic location of Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Clubrooms, all are welcome to attend this free exhibition, which features over 100 artworks by talented local artists.
Trigg Art Club was formed in 1969 by a group of local artists whose children were members of the Trigg Island Surf Life Saving Club (TISLSC). The aim of the art club was to showcases their original works to the wider public.
Come along and peruse a diverse range of artistic styles and subjects in watercolours, oils, pastels, acrylics and mixed media. There will be something for everyone.
To mark the Centenary of the WW1 Armistice, the club will have a section of the exhibition dedicated to the fallen and those left behind. The theme of this section will be 'WW1 Remembrance & Peace'.
All displayed artwork is available for sale at affordable prices with all profits donated to TISLSC.
June Sullivan will also donate a painting entitled 'Red' as a door prize, valued at $450. The winning ticket will be drawn at 5pm on Sunday 20th April 2018. The winner will be notified (the winner does not have to be in attendance).
June Sullivan, born in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England, emigrated to Australia in 2005. The inspiration for her work usually comes from nature and her other passions, scuba diving and underwater photography. However, June often works purely from her imagination and likes to let her work evolve as she paints.
Working in watercolour, acrylic and mixed media, her work is truly diverse. She paints anything from beautiful underwater scenes to delightful emus and she loves bright colours and tries to incorporate humour in her work wherever she can. June is a member of Trigg Art Club, The Watercolour Society of WA, The West Australian Society of Arts, Ocean View Art Group and Wanneroo Joondalup Art Society.
The donated painting, 'Red', was painted with the 100th anniversary of WW1 in mind, with poppies being synonymous with remembrance. Visitors to the Trigg Art Club Exhibition are asked to donate a gold coin to enter the draw to win the painting. All donations will benefit TISLSC, allowing them to keep the local beach safe for all.
An opening night event will be held on Friday 18th May at 7:00 pm. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.
The exhibition will then continue on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th May from 9.00 am to 5:00 pm.
Come along with your family and friends, view the exhibition, have a stroll by the beach and enjoy the stunning views with a tea or coffee. All are welcome.
