  • Sarina Sevens Exhibition

    Friday 15 Mar 2018

    SARINA artist Jo Mitchell isn’t afraid to try something new.

    Jo is currently exhibiting the latest phase of her work in the Sarina Sevens exhibition now on show at the Sarina Art Gallery, in the town’s Field of Dreams parkland.

    “I was working in abstract art, but I’ve moved slowly to semi-realistic works,” she said.

    She got into abstract art after winning a $1000 tutorial seven years ago.

    “I’ve moved on, I never really thought it (abstract) was me. I didn’t really know how to do it.

    “My works now aren’t abstract, but they’re not totally realistic either. My view is, if it looks like a photo take a picture of it.”

    But photography still has a role in her work, as she takes numerous photos of birds which form the basis of the series of works she is displaying.

    Bill Hancock, Kitty Mian, Jodie Perna, Helen Pickering and Elizabeth Craig are also exhibiting until March 21, from 10am-3pm daily. The exhibition is free and will also open for the Sarina Arts and Crafts Centre’s twilight markets on March 15 from 4-8pm.

  • The Fibre Artists

    HIGH heels have reached new heights of fashion in the hands of Sarina’s fibre arts ladies.

    Di Proctor and Ruth Grainger have dolled up two shoes for display at the club’s quilt and craft day on May 11, spicing them up with lace, diamond dots, jewellery from old earrings and even a few crafty butterflies.

    While you can’t wear them out, as there’s only one shoe for each pair, they are a statement of the painstaking skill involved in works by the members of the Sarina Fibre Arts Group.

    “We’ll have them on display but you won’t be able to buy them for your next big night out,” Di said.
    “We’ve put a lot of time into them, to takes ages to put it all together.”

    Quilting, patchwork, embroidery, crocheting and knitting are among the skills which will be on display at the exhibition, from 9am to 4pm at the club’s Lee St centre.
