It’s a show celebrating the pleasing efforts of the students.

The master motivator of artistic talents, Col South, told News Of The Area, “All Class is an exhibition of work from the Monday pen and wash class and the Wednesday oil class.

“The exhibition includes work from more experienced artists as well as the work of beginners,” he said.

“As the tutor I am delighted with the level of achievement of the students in the classes,” said Col.

Just finishing up at Woolgoolga Art Gallery is Karen Thio’s magical and whimsical exhibition titled ‘A Flurry of Fairy Wrens’, which will close on Tuesday 25 July.

“I have been involved in group exhibitions previously, but putting on a solo exhibition is something else,” Karen told NOTA.

“I have been humbled by how many people have visited the gallery, enjoyed my work and provided great feedback.

“Opening night was a blast, a party with great food, live music and at least 70 people enjoying the vibe.

“Putting on an exhibition was all I thought it should be, an audience for my work and a celebration,” she said.
