New artwork planned for Leeton

Western Riverina Arts have commissioned chalk artists Bev and Diana Issac to create a temporary artwork in the main street of Leeton in early October.

Bev and Diana Isaac have worked in New Zealand and Singapore, as well delivering projects for corporate clients in Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland and Adelaide.

The mother and daughter duo are among Melbourne's most original and prolific artists and known for running a pavement gallery in Southbank for many years.

In 1992 Bev co-founded Chalk Circle with Peter Voice to tour Canada, Britain and Europe. The group continue to work internationally and throughout Australia, running workshops in schools, towns and festivals.

Last August Chalk Circle created a 3D tiger outside the Melbourne Cricket Ground for the Richmond Football Club.

"We are looking forward to working on a new drawing in Leeton and running a workshop in Narrandera and meeting the lovely people from the Riverina," said Bev Isaac.

In March this year the Isaacs ran an "extremely successful" workshop with Moama Grammar School students while they were in the region as part of the Celtic Festival.

Beverly Isaac has been a full-time practicing artist since 1986, when she completed her degree in Fine Art (Sculpture) at Victoria College. She has conducted countless life drawing, sculpture and pavement drawing workshops -- inspiring literally thousands of artists of all ages.

Diana Isaac has exhibited on many pavements in Melbourne as well as the Barossa Valley and the Geldern Pavement Art Competition in Germany. She has been commissioned to create pavement art for events and designed a mosaic for the cover of Mental Health Magazine.

Come and see the work take shape in Jarrah Mall from Wednesday 2 to Friday 4 October.
