Shire’s artistic talents go on show for annual exhibit

Gallery technician Glenn McGoldrick, curator Helen Kaptein, Bealiba artist Tenar Dwyer, Maryboroughʼs Willy Bogaers and Central Goldfields Shire chief administrator Noel Harvey are eagerly awaiting the launch, which showcases the artistic talent of the region.

Artists from across the shire will be showcasing their “outstanding” work at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery this month as part of the gallery’s newest exhibition.

Officially launching tomorrow, the 2019 Community Art and Craft Exhibition sees artists from every community within the shire as well as from Avoca exhibiting a range of works in the popular annual exhibition.

Bealiba resident Tenar Dwyer, who generally paints with oils, said she’s done something a little different for her work titled Artifact No. 5.

“When you walk through the bush there are all sorts of weird and wonderful things left over from farms — bits of barbed wire, fence posts and machinery,” she said.

“There’s a history behind each of these things and that’s what I’m trying to capture, that sense of exploration and the feeling you get when you discover something.”

The exhibition will officially launch at 2 pm tomorrow, Saturday, November 2 at the Central Goldfields Art Gallery and will be on display until November 24.
