Exposé - pop-up exhibition GRAG

Exposé - pop-up exhibition GRAG

Tonight, Thursday 31st May, from 6pm, the Griffith Regional Art Gallery will be hosting an official opening for its pop-up exhibition Exposé. 

Exposé is a collaborative exhibition of life-drawings and paintings by participants of the Gallery's life-drawing classes. The enthusiastic group meets regularly to take part in dynamic life drawing sessions and the pop-up exhibition will reveal the talent and diversity in styles the group currently possess.

Public Programs Officer, Anthea Da Silva, believes life drawing is suitable for all skill levels.

“The life sessions are for everyone from absolute beginners, occasional dabblers, teachers and professionals itching to get out the charcoal, paint, pencils, clay, textas and sticky bits of electrical tape again,” said Ms Da Silva. “A live model will strike dynamic poses for two hours while we share practical drawing tips, erudite art chat, vino and nibbles.”

To celebrate the Exposé pop-up exhibition, two public programs have been planned. The official opening will be held on Thursday 31 May at 6pm with plenty of chilled and bubbly Brut Cuvée provided by sponsors McWilliam’s Family Winemakers.

A free life drawing session is also being held for any new or interested people on Saturday 2 June at 3pm with vino and nibbles also included.

This is only a short-term exhibition and is on display until Sunday 10th June, so make sure you get in to the Gallery to see it. 

For more information contact the Gallery on 6962 8338. Griffith Regional Art Gallery is located at 167 Banna Avenue, Griffith. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Friday 10am to 5pm and weekends from 11am to 2pm.
