Call goes out to West Coast artists
Women artists on the West Coast are invited to prepare original pieces for display in a major art exhibition in March next year.
Strahan Primary School, in partnership with Anglicare Tasmania, will hold the event to mark International Women’s Day (March 8, 2021).
Anglicare is calling for artists, sculptors, designers of warp, weft or wood, wordsmiths and weavers to exhibit works created in the previous twelve months.
Emma Scicluna, Principal of Strahan Primary School, explained the school’s involvement: “I am extremely proud that the school is able to support this special exhibition to recognise the talent, skills and passion of women in the West. Showcasing women’s strength – both individually and collectively – encourages our communities to celebrate the achievements of local artists, young and old.”
Kris Plummer from Anglicare said there were numerous West Coast artists whose work was highly regarded for its depth of expression and authenticity. Kris said there were also “hidden artists” with creative talents yet to be revealed. “This exhibition is the perfect event to share their work as we celebrate the achievements of female artisans.”
To find out more about taking part in the exhibition please telephone Anglicare on 1800 243 232 and ask for Kris Plummer or Lyn O’Grady, or register your interest here.
