Tackling challenges with line and space
BRISBANE artist and teacher Rob O'Brien will visit Stanthorpe for the opening of his exhibition Lines & Spaces at the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery on April 19.
Rob will also be facilitating two workshops at Art Works on Davadi at Stanthorpe on April 17 and 20.
Rob O'Brien, who holds a masters degree in human relations and community education, has worked at the cutting edge in Australia and the USA using creative processes with groups and individuals to respond to life's challenges. These challenges can be personal, environmental, social or cultural.
Rob said his workshops - Seven Windows to My World and My Personal Mandala - use researched methods "to see my past, present and future using painting or drawing materials in a safe environment that can be fun and enlightening".
"The Mandala workshop will allow people to use this ancient creative process, with a modern twist, to discover new insights about how we tick as people," he said.
To take advantage of this opportunity and register for Rob O'Brien's workshops phone 0439 990 703 or email email@example.com.
Workshop costs are $45, concession $35.
Workshop brochures can be collected from Art Works on Davadi or the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery.
Rob's exquisite artworks of ink on paper with watercolour, many of which depict Australian flora and fauna, have won awards and are represented in many regional galleries in Australia - including the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery, three books and many collections overseas.
Rob's exhibition at SRAG runs until June 2.
