THE Glenorchy Open Art Exhibition returned bigger and better than ever this year with more than 115 works of all art mediums gracing the walls of the Moonah Arts Centre.

Now in its 11th year, the annual art exhibition is open to all artists living or working in Glenorchy.

Minister for the Arts and Local Liberal Member for Clark (formerly Denison) Elise Archer, who attended the opening of the exhibition, said she was delighted with the quality of works on display this year.

“This much-loved exhibition is a real celebration of the creativity of our vibrant, multicultural community,” she said.

“The exhibition features work by established artists, emerging artists and students working in any medium including painting, drawing, print media, sculpture, installation, photography, ceramics, textiles, digital media and more.

“There really is something for everyone.”

First-time exhibitor Ked Osborne, from Moonah, said she was thrilled to see her painting ‘Mesmerise’ in the exhibition.

“My inspiration for this painting is from French Polynesia and I also love the sun, sand and ocean waves, so the painting is partly reflecting me,” she said.

“I am extremely grateful for the community for giving artists a chance to express themselves and to be involved in an exhibition like this.

“It is so important for emerging artists like myself to have these sorts of community art exhibitions and I look forward to many more to come.”
