Armidale: Art Gallery
August 3 - August 27
A reminder that the community art exhibition that ARAR has organised has its official opening this SATURDAY 3RD AUGUST AT 6PM at the Armidale Art Gallery, upstairs in the Mall.
The exhibition will run until 27th August, and there are around 40 art works from the Armidale community, in response to a poem and painting by Farhad Bandesh, a refugee on Manus.
The small organising group within ARAR is very happy with the quality and range of works in the exhibition, and because we are sharing the opening with two other exhibitions, ARAR decided to hold a further gathering in the exhibition rooms of the Gallery on Saturday 10th August, from 12.30pm for about an hour.
We are inviting all the artists to attend. People who have submitted poems for the exhibition will be invited to read them, and any artists who wish to speak about their work as responses to our brief will be welcomed to do so. There may also be readings of poems from Manus and Nauru.
