Students' art for sale
YOUNG artists hoping to get their foot in the door will have an opportunity at myARTshow at Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School next week.
The school's year 10 Visual Art students are hosting the inaugural event for fellow pupils and local artists who want to sell their art to the public.
Opening night at the Mahers Lane, Terranora campus on Thursday, October 29 from 6.30pm will feature an array of art work for sale by students from Years 7 to 11 alongside accomplished Tweed artists.
The school's visual art and textiles co-ordinator Ursula Nash said the exhibition is all about the students.
“Selling your art is one of the hardest things for young artists to do,” Ms Nash said.
“They've done some great work this year, and this will be good for their confidence.
“Some students are feeling intimidated, but confidence is growing fast.”
More than 12 students will have their work on display along side the works of four artists from outside the school.
“It's open to anyone, we just want to help young artists,” Ms Nash said.
Artwork on display will include paintings, textiles, design work, drawings, clothing and bags. Students will also be running opening night, handling sales and preparing food.
Ms Nash said everyone is invited to the evening, which will include sales and auctions of student work, popular choice awards,raffle, food and drinks.
The show will again be open to the public on Friday, October 30, from 9am to 4pm and Saturday, October 31, from 10am to 2pm.
Saturday will feature face painting, a sausage sizzle and art activities.
