The Light Through the Trees

The Light Through the Trees

(exhibition at Durras Progress Hall)

The exhibition, The Light Through the Trees, that was originally to be held at the same time as the River of Art Festival (September 2021), will now be held at Durras Progress Hall in February 2022.

The exhibition will be open from Friday morning 25 February and run for 10 days until Sunday 6 March. It will be open each day from 10 am to 4 pm.

There will be an opening at 3 pm Friday 25 February, and artists’ talks on Saturday 26 February 10 to 11 am. There will be an invitation circulated in early Feb.

South Durras artists are invited to submit work for the exhibition. Can you confirm with me by email if you will be submitting a work.

Helen writes "I am hoping that artists will respond to the theme and make a new work. And just to recap, the following outlines the idea I had:

The title, The Light Through the Trees may be seen as a metaphor for a time of relative comfort after more challenging times - light as hope and clarity, beyond darkness. As well as the conceptual side, the idea of light through trees is a very visual one, particularly in our region where we are surrounded by beautiful forests. The exhibition will bring together a richness of ideas rendered in various mediums.

The Light Through the Trees is a group exhibition including artists from the local area and invited artists from other places.

Works can be in any medium but must be no larger than 100 x 100 cm when framed. 3D works will be installed on a plinth, unless otherwise instructed. Works must be properly prepared for exhibition.

There will be a 30% commission on any sales, 10% of which will be donated to the Durras Progress Hall improvement fund. 20% will go towards covering costs.

I am so looking forward to the exhibition, Helen"
