Orara art show to open soon
CAMERAS have been clicking and paint has been splashed around as the creative people of the Orara Valley prepare for the Cedar and Steam Exhibition, which opens on Friday.
Glenreagh Memorial Museum is once again hosting its annual art exhibition on Friday evening and all day Saturday, April 1-2, in the village’s historic School of Arts building.
Hundreds of entries have been received from six Orara Valley primary schools, from Glenreagh to Karangi.
The school children’s theme is My Country.
The youth and adult sections are not restricted by a theme and a wide variety of work has been received in five sections – painting, drawing, photography, fibre art and sculpture.
Running concurrently with the exhibition will be a selection of Toni Fuller’s photography. Two other feature artists will have their work on display – Peggy Clark’s smocking and Honi Reifler’s rustic wreaths.
Doors open at 6pm on Friday evening with light refreshments with a country theme. This will be followed by the official opening at 7pm and the presentation of prizes to the winners.
On Saturday the exhibition will be open between 9am and 3pm with a gold coin entry fee. There will be a raffle at the door.
