Artists come out of the woodwork

RICHARD Rees has created an abstract sculpture from plaster and wire and Peter Mulheron has painted the monthly Dorrigo markets.

On Monday, Dorrigo artists were coming out of the woodwork, delivering their creations to the Community Centre, in preparation for this year’s Creative Mountain Arts Exhibition.

Woodworkers, painters, sculptors, fibre artists, ceramicists, kids old and young, everyone gets involved.

“It’s a great exhibition that really showcases all the creative talent on the plateau,” Mr Rees said.

“And it really is an incredibly creative district. The exhibition is good fun – even better now we’ve had some renovations to the Community Centre.”

The annual exhibition is a welcome opportunity for local artists to gain recognition they might not otherwise gain. This year’s theme is "Celebrating the Landscape", with guest artists Nudge Blacklock, Catherine McGregor and Anne Irvine.

The exhibition opens tomorrow night from 7.30pm and continues until Wednesday, April 27.
