River of Art : Young Photographers In Focus

Aspiring young photographers from Bodalla Primary School will have their photographs displayed at the Narooma Library as part of this month’s River of Art Festival.

A brand new event for Eurobodalla’s annual art festival, the exhibition will feature the photographs taken by students in Years 5 and 6 at the school as part of the School Selfie initiative.

“The aim of the initiative is to introduce the children to new ways of viewing their school environment and their place within it via the art of photography,” explained Brian Harris, festival committee member and workshop mentor.

“The photographs combine to create a unique mosaic of the stunning Bodalla environment,” he added.

Mick Newnham, a member of the Eurobodalla Photographic Club, developed and led workshops at the school on various elements of photography including composition, light, angles and colour.

Other schools were invited to participate in the initiative but because of COVID concerns, this year’s exhibition will only feature the Bodalla school.

In addition to being displayed at the Narooma Library during the festival, they will also be featured on a virtual gallery on the River of Art website - https://www.riverofart.com.au/custom_events/bodalla-ps-takes-a-selfie-exhibition/ .

The festival runs from 18 to 27 September and despite the COVID challenges, it will still feature the River of Art Prize, Open Studios, workshops and exhibitions. Another new event is the mural initiative – REVIVE – which will see large public murals being painted in Bateman’s Bay, Moruya and Narooma throughout the festival.

The festival program and other information can be found on www.riverofart.com.au .
