Two years ago a small nucleus of local artists banded together and formed a group for support and encouragement. Three successful exhibitions were at Rivet Gallery. After consultation with the Old School Arts Centre and joined by more members, a successful joint exhibition was held. Over time this small group has morphed into 17 talented artists covering a diverse range of styles using a variety of materials and equipment. After the first successful show they followed on with two of the group showing their work on a monthly basis.
Carrying on with this tradition a new exhibition titled This is Us has been assembled with each artist contributing a new work. An exciting mix of small and large paintings using acrylics, oils, wax and other mediums, plus textile art, ethnic jewellery and splendid photography will all be on show. Abstract art is also amongst the mix allowing great use of form and colour, guaranteed to get the imagination humming. This innovative group of local artists will expose their latest work and hope that people will be as excited and delighted as they are.
This is Us opens on Saturday, February 2 from 10am to 2pm. Open daily for the month of February. The Raglan Art Group welcomes locals and visitors to come along to absorb and engage with the energy.
