OUR local Bristle Brush Artists were pleased to present the second of their artists’ workshops over the weekend as part of their Art Attack project funded through a CASP grant.
The Country Arts Support Program is funded by the NSW Government through Arts NSW and jointly delivered by Regional Arts NSW and Regional Arts Boards throughout NSW.
The Mixed Media workshop was presented by Tracey Crieghton, a practising regional artist from the Boardwalk Gallery in Merimbula. Artists from local and neighbouring regions took advantage of this two day workshop with much enthusiasm.
Participants were taken through a range of techniques that pushed them outside their comfort zones with some great results. Tracey had a wealth of knowledge to offer and was generous in her assistance to the group.
The weekend was a success with everyone feeling they had gained something new, and some techniques they could explore further.
The venue at St Mary’s Parish Hall proved to be a wonderful space with ample room and wonderful natural light, greatly appreciated by Tracey and the participants.
The weekend again strengthened and helped create links between artists within our region. Bristle Brush Arts have been delighted with the response and interest in the workshops they have been able to offer so far, and look forward to the next one which is coming up in early September.
This two day workshop will be presented by Grace Paleg, a superb Pastel artist from Batesman Bay, who teaches all over Australia. Grace’s workshop will be focusing on the passage of light on a still life.
Places have been filling quickly but there are a few left, further information is available from Carol on 6458 3092. The Bristle Brush Arts group continues to meet at 10am on Tuesdays at the St Mary Parish Hall with any artists welcome to join them.
