ATTENDEES of the Converge event as part of last month’s Shepparton Festival were given the chance to dabble in some interesting art techniques, with the Splinter Contemporary Artists delivering two free community art activities.
The ‘Weaving our stories together’ and ‘Stories through clay’ activities was received well, with the results to be displayed in a new exhibition at Kyabram Town Hall Gallery, with the title Sharing Stories.
Splinter Contemporary Artists publicity officer, Beverly Dowd said, “Come along and see the completed woven forms, images, words and photographs. Maybe you will see something you contributed to.
“On that Saturday participants wove coloured lengths of fabric and yarn through suspended Murray Cray pots and transformed balls of clay into bird forms. Both opportunities elicited art-making and story-sharing by members of the community – each small act contributing to a larger outcome of art, understanding, and connection.”
Sharing Stories will officially open at the Kyabram Town Hall Gallery in Allan Street, Kyabram on Saturday, May 18 at 2pm and will run until August 5.
