Creative talent on display

THE works of more than 100 senior Tasmanian painters, drawers and mixed media artists will be on display to the public at the Colour Circle 2018 Exhibition.

Held at Kingston Beach Community Hall, this year’s exhibition will showcase an array of mediums including watercolour, pastel, acrylic, mixed media and much more.

Artworks have been created as part of the theme, ‘It’s a Wonderful World’.

They will be available for purchase and sales can be made by cash or cheque only.

Located in Hobart, the Colour Circle Inc is a membership-based art group for senior artists, established in 1967 by Rosamond McCulloch.

Committee member June Francis said she joined the group because she had been interested in art all her life.

“I can’t ever imagine giving it up just because I’m retired,” she said.

“Now I can do the kind of art that I want to do rather than what everyone else wanted me to do when I was working.

“I can now express myself and having that wonderful freedom of self-expression keeps you young, keeps you active and keeps you alive.”

Classes are tutored by experienced and professional Tasmanian artists.

Kingbourough Council deputy mayor Paula Wriedt will officially open the exhibition on 22 June at 6.30pm.

It will run until 24 June.
