Fine art will lift the spirits
THERE is nothing quite like an exhibition of fine art to lift the spirits.
In this uncertain economic climate, Warwick residents are being urged to visit at the Warwick Art Gallery to catch the latest offering from the Warwick Artists’ Group and Warwick Woodcrafters, called Visual Connections.
It features more than 120 works of art which are certain to banish all thoughts of a stock market slump or interest rate rise.
It has been two years since these two popular Warwick community groups have exhibited at their local gallery.
The time has allowed members to explore new ideas and create artworks for their much anticipated exhibition.
Warwick Art Gallery director Karina Devine said the significance of art groups to community wellbeing was huge.
“Being a member of the Warwick Artists’ Group or Warwick Woodcrafters is not just about pursuing an individual’s artistic journey,” she said.
“Group members form a close bond, joined by a common interest that brings them together and generates friendships between people who may not otherwise have ever crossed paths.”
The exhibition features a range of paintings from traditional landscape and still life to emotive abstract.
Many gallery visitors look forward to viewing the craftsmanship of the local woodcrafters, and they will be amazed by the intricacy and beauty of the timber work by Bob Amos, Ken Mitchell and Wayne Vince, to name just a few of the 29 artists involved in the exhibition.
Entry to Visual Connections is free and the exhibition is now open.
