‘ART LIFE – Unleashing the Potential Within’ – Exhibition

By Shirley Wong, 5 December 2016 , Comments

We are not far away from the Northcott Parramatta Life Skills ‘ART LIFE – Unleashing the Potential Within’ Art Exhibition. The Life Skills group is busy preparing and we are excited about the event.

I would like to share with you a piece called ‘Wild Sea’. This piece was a collaboration, with many participants of the Life Skills program contributing to its creation. With the three piece canvas at our complete disposal and with the idea of ‘unleashing the potential within’ in our imaginations, we all had the opportunity to contribute in anyway we wished.

Ashleigh McDonald, a Life Skills customer commented; “I can showcase my artistic skills. I enjoying doing art as it makes me feel calm. I am capable of creating art just like anyone else with my own style and personality”. Another member of the group, Mariam Yaghi also said “it makes me feel happy and like I have achieved something”.

The painting ‘Wild Sea’ depicts the constant movement of the sea in all its beauty, whilst also depicting the power and strength of the ocean. This work reflects the strengths and abilities of the artists involved in the work. “It’s not so much the artwork itself, it’s more that it allows me to paint. I love painting” said Emma Giblin, another Life Skills customer.

This piece represents so much to us at Life Skills and we are proud of how it has come together. We are very excited to announce that this piece, along with many others at the ART LIFE expo, could be yours.  At the Opening Night of our ART LIFE exhibition we will be hosting a silent auction with all the profits going towards the artists and Life Skills program.

Art Life launches on Tuesday 13th December and continues over the next two days – Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th December at Parramatta Town Hall. We look forward to seeing you at this unique and wonderful art exhibition presented by our talented artists. Not to be missed!
