When:4 - 25 August
Located in the hinterland between the beaches and headlands of the Far South Coast and the Great Dividing Range, Bega is the home of Tulgeen Disability Service’s Art in the Garage.
Artists with disability are mentored one on one in a converted garage and produce high quality artworks. The artists range in ages from their early twenties to seventy. Some are established and have exhibited with commercial and critical success others are emerging with their exciting, new, fresh work.
These art works are full of colour and strength and assert the art and the artists’ right to be included, recognised and applauded within the community, not in its hinterlands.
The 21 artists create landscapes, abstract expressionist interpretations, portraits, storytelling, and depictions of memories and experiences, using watercolours, gouache, acrylics, pastels, pencil and pen work on paper on canvas.
