Current Exhibition

Art in a Tin Shed

Lisa Wright’s untitled piece is part of the Art in a Tin Shed exhibition

Male and female members of the Casino Men’s Shed, who collectively get together to share ideas

and learn new skills, have come together to exhibit their works in a new exhibition.

Art In A Tin Shed will be on show at Kyogle’s Roxy Gallery until May 5.

This is an exhibition which lifts aspiring new artists to another level by providing them with an opportunity to share their works with the public for critic.

Meeting once a week, this group of mostly retired individuals take over a section of the Casino Men’s Shed, position their easels, pull out their paints and set about exploring their hidden talents.

Ruth Riordan facilitates the group which has become a fantastic way for the members to share, explore, support and grow through, and in, art making.

‘Art In A Tin Shed reflects the joy and interest people, who do not come from an arts background, can obtain by collectively working together.

Metamorphosis

Metamorphosis is the subject and title chosen by the Community of Learners Of Upper Richmond Small Schools (COLOURSS) exhibition at the Roxy Gallery from 7 May through to 2 June.

For a number of years the Upper Richmond small schools of Afterlee, Bakersvale, Collins Creek, Rukenvale, The Risk and Wiangaree have come together to showcase the amazing creative minds of their young students.

A featured artwork by an Afterlee Public School student.

This year, with the support of local artist Rebecca Tapscott O’Meara, the students have been exploring the concept of metamorphosing themselves in our world.

With a collection of ideas on how they would like to create themselves in a new world, these young minds have painted, drawn and sculpted images of other selves, evolving beings from extinct and common creatures.

It is always exciting and refreshing to exhibit art made by young people as they grasp non-conforming stereotypes of how art could/should be.

A student from The Risk Public School submitted this piece for the exhibition.

This is the ninth year that the COLOURSS group has coordinated the collective of small public schools to host an exhibition of the art learning that their students engage in and the Roxy Gallery is always excited to curate their works in the space, bringing to the gallery new and interesting art.

The official opening will be held on Wednesday 9 May from 5.30pm and all are welcome to join in celebrating the achievements of these young students in creating such a strong body of artworks.
