Small art works for big show

A GROUP of talented Casey artists will be bringing a selection of their works to the Civic Centre Art Space over summer.
Artists from Berwick’s Paperworks Gallery, run by local Andrea Hopgood, will showcase their pieces for a special exhibition in December and January.
Casey Mayor Mick Morland encouraged residents to drop by the exhibition, which has already opened.
“Andrea has more than 30 years’ teaching experience and has inspired and passed on her expertise to students in a range of mediums throughout the year,” he said.
“This exhibition features artworks in a variety of mediums including paintings, pencil, pastel, yarn and clay.
“There will be realist pastel works of the Victorian coastline, handmade jewellery made from origami, still life drawings and paintings and hand painted clay sculptures that reflect the many mediums and materials that the artists explored during the year.
“Council is thrilled that we can showcase the amazing works of some of the rising stars of the art world. “
Some of the artists who will showcase their works in the exhibition are Bek Andrew, Laura White, Gill Samuel, Fiona Mittag Barb Owen, Megan Caldwell, Trudy Wiseman, Robyn Barber, Tracey Kyle, Jackie Abrehart, Gabrielle Hopgood, Melanie Whitling and Donna Mahon.
The Inspired by Nature – A Collection of Small Pieces is the final exhibition of Casey Council’s 2014 Art Space program, and can be viewed at the Art Space in the foyer of the City of Casey Civic Centre, from 10 December to 30 January 2015.
