Hands On Studio Upcoming Exhibition
July 19, 2017

Hands on Studio, an art studio run by CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn, would like to warmly invite you to the opening night of their latest exhibition.

Hands On Studio is a creative and inclusive art program that provides people with varying disabilities and psychosocial issues access to art. The program is housed within M16 ARTSPACE in Griffith and classes include painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture. The classes are taught in a person centered approach, giving the students the opportunity to work independently or in collaboration with their peers and tutor.

 

Curator of the exhibition and Hands On Studio Manager, Tilley Davey is thrilled with the current output of art and her role there, “It is has been a delight to take on the role as the manager at Hands On. I believe that the value and substance which is produced at Hands On and other community art programs throughout Canberra is a critical aspect to community growth and wellbeing.”

 

“It sometimes feels like I am managing the brightest, friendliest studio in the world. It is wonderful to see the amount of effort that all of the students and tutors put into the exhibitions and their weekly classes.” Ms Davey said.

 

At Hands On Studio it is strongly encouraged that all participants view their art practice in a professional manner, by regularly contributing artwork to exhibitions around Canberra and collaborating with various artistic institutions in the ACT.

 

The works showcased in this exhibition have been produced at Hands On Studio over the past year. All of the works outline the value of the program and community art in Canberra as a whole.

 

Details for opening night of the exhibition are as follows:

  • When: Thursday 27 July 2017 from 6pm.
  • Where: M16 Artspace, Gallery 3, 21 Blaxand Crescent, Griffith ACT 2603.

 

The exhibition will run until 13 August 2017.
