Exhibition a dream series for top artist

LOCAL artist John Thiering will be getting his hands in the sand at the opening of his new exhibition The Wayfarer's Dream.

Although the exhibition will consist of his paintings, John will treat visitors at the launch to a sand-painting performance in collaboration with legendary Hip Hop DJ Bboy Seiz.

John has been performing sand-painting across the coast since 2010. Sand painting is a medium where the artist draws a series of pictures in sand on a light box. The pictures morph into each other to create a moving story accompanied by music and projected on to a screen.

The exhibition opens with the performance on Saturday at 6.30pm at The Open Studio, Vernon St, Coffs Harbour, and will run for four weeks. John is a well-known artist who had his first show in Sydney in 1987.
