Narromine has attracted some big hitters in the art scene to exhibit in its third I Heart Art Show, from 23-24 March 2018 at Soul Food Design Depot and Gallery.
Internationally renowned artists such as David Bromley will feature, along with some of the best local and regional artists, sculptors and photographers. Works from local artists Susie Rae, Nikki McCutcheon and Vicki Gainsford will sit alongside those from the some of the best around NSW including award winning Lara Scolari, Catherine Stewart, Jacinta Haycock and Kyah Wilson.
The show aims to bring top quality art to the small, culture-loving community and to raise money for local school St Augustine’s Primary.
Holly Davies, part of the event team, says that the exhibition is fast becoming a firm fixture on the regional art scene.
'The first event was difficult to attract artists to exhibit their works at a brand new show in a small town but the event’s reputation has grown exponentially, with this year featuring our top 20 artists from our previous events, plus an additional five. Notable new artists include Mudgee-based illustrator Warwick Behrens and painter Charles Smith.
The town has embraced the show as well, with hundreds of people attending to see some fantastic artwork and many digging deep into their pockets to make sure that some of the fine works find a new home in Narromine.'
The event will be held over two days, featuring a gala night and auction on Friday 23 March, where people will have the first opportunity to purchase their pick of the works on offer.
On Saturday 24 March the exhibition will be open from 10am–2pm for art lovers from across the region to take in some of the top quality works on display. The day will also feature activities for budding young artists.
A children’s art competition is running in conjunction with the exhibition on the theme Creativity Takes Courage. Children from preschool to Year 12 can share in cash and prizes by submitting their paintings, drawings, photography or sculpture works to St Augustine’s School, Narromine by Wednesday 21 March. Winners will be announced on Saturday 24 March.
