There will be bright and original pieces for sale and this will be your opportunity to meet these artists. Why - you may even fall in love with one of their works and take home an original, one-off visually exciting piece of artwork!
Most houses could do with a warm and welcoming feel. Original artwork that is chosen by the owner can often give an ongoing sense of peace, tranquillity, excitement, and joy. This type of artwork can actually transform a house into a home.
This exhibition is being supported by Skigh Wines with one of the artists Carolyn Rhodes Thompson's artwork depicting the drying effects on our lakes and waterways. This is featured on the label for Scarcity, which is a special release magnum in aid of the drought-stricken farmers.
Carolyn Rhodes-Thompson is a local West Australian artist and teacher of 40 years. She was born in the country town of Lake Grace. Her early childhood was spent in the nearby town of Lake King, where she started painting after an accident in which she almost lost her left foot. Her inspiration comes from her childhood country background, where the land and lakes go on as far as the eye can see. Her work is also influenced by extensive overseas travel.
Colour, texture and the use of light are very important elements of her paintings. Carolyn prefers to work mainly in acrylics and mixed media.
Carolyn gained a Bachelor of Education in Art from Sturt CAE, South Australia. She has studied under internationally recognised artist Thomas Gleghorn and continued studying for her Post Graduate Diploma in art under the guidance of the late West Australian artist, Elizabeth Ford.
This art show 'Desirables' will be opened by renowned poet and author Stevie Belowsky. The exhibition will run from Thursdays to Saturdays from 11.00 am to 2.00 pm. Entry to the exhibition is free.
