River of Art Festival and River of Dreams Opening | Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre this Friday May

River of Art Festival and River of Dreams Opening | Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre Where: Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre, corner of Vulcan and Campbell Street in Moruya When: Friday 17 May, 6 - 8pm

Join us for champagne and canapés at the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre when Archibald winner Wendy Sharpe opens the River of Dreams exhibition – the official opening of the 2019 River of Art Festival on Friday 17 May, 6-8pm. Opening night patrons will relish the musical accompaniment by 2019 Narooma Busking Festival champion, harpist Yasmine Russell.

River of Dreams is the first in a series of river-themed exhibitions jointly hosted by the Bas and the River of Art. This year, we invited artists who represent the depth of creative talent found in the Eurobodalla to imaginatively decipher the lyrics of Billy Joel’s River of Dreams. The result is an eclectic exhibition which celebrates unique musings on the natural environment and the song’s meaning.

Exhibition Artists: Adrienne Conway, Annie Franklin, Carolyn Kohler, David Walker, Diane Appleby, Frances Luke, Grace Paleg, Helen Okey, Jennifer Mallinson, Jo Victoria , John Rouch John Sharman, Julie Armstrong, Ken Taber, Mandy Hillson, Margaret Ainscow, Pam Edwards, Raewyn Lawrence, Ruth Hassall, Stuart Whitelaw and Susan Nader.

Everyone is invited to enjoy this wonderful festival. Printed programs are available at libraries and Visitor Information Centres and you can see the program on the River of Art website.

Most events are free but there are some terrific ticketed events including a Kebarat at the Kinema in Narooma and conversations with artists in Moruya and Batemans Bay. Tickets are going fast, so don't miss out.
