New art exhibition coming to Kyabram Town Hall

By Jared Prestwidge

LOCKDOWN Look Up, a new exhibition from Splinter Contemporary Artists, is coming to Kyabram Town Hall.

Set to run from August 4 to November 1, the exhibition shows off new works designed as a reflection of the artists’ experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Splinter Contemporary Artists president Beverley Dowd said the works on show were as varied as the individual experiences of the exhibiting artists.

“During the initial months of the pandemic there was uncertainty and fear. For some of our members, the ongoing experience has changed us as artists and as people. Our working methods changed, and our thought processes changed,” she said.

Two and three-dimensional works on show include the dynamic and energised Autumnal by Amanda Hocking and the more meditative and introspective Covid Lady by Lynne Hume.

Some artists have used time in isolation to develop new methods, with Meg Doller creating her own plant-based inks and Tanja Waterman pushing the boundaries of loom weaving.

Lockdown Look Up will run from August 4 to November 1 on Mondays to Saturdays.
Entry is by donation.
