Mix of creativity on show

A FUSION of colour and acrylic will descend upon Mt Barker’s Art Chatter Gallery when artworks from Albany art students are installed this weekend.

The Mature Mix Art Exhibition will officially open this Saturday at 2pm and continue until May 17 in the Strike Me Pink’s exhibition space.

The art pieces are the result of Vancouver Art Centre’s two Wednesday classes, and tutor Helen Leeder-Carlson said the exhibition comprises acrylic, portraiture, monochrome, seasonal, still life and landscape art.

“We’re a really lively, light-hearted class and I always encourage people to do things and expand their creativity,” she said.

“Having exhibitions like this encourages art students to keep up their art and it gives locals the chance to purchase affordable, original, local art.”

Ms Leeder-Carlson said artwork will be available for between $75 and $150, and the exhibition will be laid out with connecting colours.

The Art Chatter Gallery at Strike Me Pink is located on Langton Road in Mt Barker and is open every day, 10am to 4.30pm.
