Our Shadow and Light exhibition
is about to go live !
The works have been finished, packed, priced and presented to the exhibition committee – and what a marvellous selection of pieces we have. 33 of our members have contributed to this fabulous opportunity to showcase their work to Sydneysiders and visitors over the next 2 weeks. And set-up day has finally arrived.
With loads of publicity happening (a special thanks to the Mosman Daily below – just a slight error as we actually have 60 members), flyers going out, posters up, invitations sent and even radio announcements, we are nearly ready for the public.
With sunny skies forecast for the next week at least, both our exhibition and the Vivid festival are sure to be busy, with 2.3 million people estimated to be visiting our beautiful waterside city over this period.
But it’s not just happening in the city centre. For the first time ever, Vivid Sydney 2016 lit up Taronga Zoo, as part of the Zoo’s Centenary Celebrations. It amazed, delighted and wowed guests young and old with its incredible giant animal light sculptures.
…. and this year will be just as thrilling. Lights for the Wild will be a fully interactive and immersive event. Become part of the experience and interact with the light sculptures – find out more here.
But back to our exhibition. What can you expect to see on show at the Palm House in the Botanic Gardens? Well, there was only one entry stipulation: each art work must include some form of hand-made paper. We are paper artists after all! Want a sneak peek? Here’s a montage of sections from some of the pieces.
Not only will there be over 70 exhibits, many for sale, but we have an array of pieces created especially for our exclusive sales area; prints, unique handcrafted paper, cards and more.
So get yourself along to the Palm House, have a chat with our members, find out more about what we do (if you’re local, consider joining us!), and buy a truly unique piece of art. We look forward to seeing you there.
