A crafty state of mind

04 Nov, 2015

The creativity and talent of our residents at Seachange Arundel was on display for all to see at our popular annual Seachange Art and Craft Exhibition. 

It was thrilling to see the exhibition back bigger and better than ever, with more than 300 arts and crafts lovers turning up to the event at our five-star country club.

“This is one of our major and most popular events at Seachange and this year’s event was no exception,” says Seachange Social Club Coordinator Brian Dawson.

“Residents were able to produce art and craft work of an exceptional standard as they were able to utilise the club’s art room, sewing room and workshop. 

 “It’s been an exciting opportunity for residents to develop their artistic side.”

Visitors enjoyed wine and cheese and took the opportunity to be inspired by artwork that played an integral role in the community.

Residents entered categories including acrylic open, acrylic beginners, oil open, watercolour open, watercolour beginners; pastel, drawing, charcoal, pen and ink; mixed media/abstract; portrait; quilts; knitting and crochet; hand embroidery; cards; and miscellaneous. 

The Neil Johnson Perpetual Award was awarded to Jeff Niblett for his mixed media work Lay Lines.
