Life without Barriers Annual Art Auction October 21

Wouldn’t you love an elephant mosaic, a paper mache zebra, or a wall cockatoo? Maybe a Mystic Eagle painting or a giant bee?

Life without Barriers annual Art Auction returns to the Federal Hotel Bellingen Saturday October 21 for another afternoon of art, music and fun.

Regular followers and the many who have yet to experience this event will be amazed at this years stunning, delightful artwork, some of which will be dis played in the art space at the Federal from October 13.

Come along for viewing and music around 2.30pm on the day, then at 3.30pm, Guy Saddleton will auction 22 works, with others for sale at a fixed price. The auction itself is lots of fun as people bid enthusiastically for their favourites.

The artists, Edward Barns, Tim Harrison, Marnie Russell, Olivia Dean and Guy Gibson, would appreciate any support the community can give for them and their visual arts program. They have created paintings, ceramics, paper mache and mosaics in a visual arts program in Nambucca Heads under the guidance of artists and teachers Susie Peake, Sara Wade and Tanya McQuinn.

Something different about this professional art exhibition is that recycled materials and frames are used where possible.The group are proud to reuse, recycle and revamp, and this enhances the affordability and the general quirky feel of the work.

The afternoon includes music, provided by Marko, a well known Bellingen guitarist and singer. Marko has a love of blues, roots and popular traditions and says; “For this show I will be playing a selection of tunes from all genres and a few of my original songs as well. There will be something for everyone.”

It’s a community event well worth supporting, as this is a way for these artists to earn a little for their achievements, and keep their activities going year after year.

Self-esteem is high at this exciting time for the artists, and every auctioned work will sell!
