Expressions of Interest have opened for this year’s Annual Art Exhibition.
Each year Council holds an art exhibition to showcase and celebrate the work of artists who live, work or are connected to the City of Whittlesea.
This is a fully accessible exhibition providing a space for local artists to exhibit and promote their work.
Artworks will be exhibited from Thursday 10 November until Thursday 15 December 2022 in The Great Hall, Council Offices, 25 Ferres Boulevard, South Morang.
This year’s theme is New Light.
New Light – this theme encourages artists to see things differently, perhaps from a new angle or perspective, perhaps armed with illuminating knowledge or lessons learned in challenging times. Spaces transform at twilight, shadows dissolve as the sun sets and landmarks disappear so a familiar landscape may become unrecognisable under moonlight. For some artists, changed circumstances may shed new light internally, for others, it may illuminate their external world, showing them aspects they’ve not yet seen, or a future yet to be imagined.
This theme may have political or spiritual significance for some while others may choose a response as functional as switching off an unnecessary light to save the planet.
All art mediums, materials, processes, practices and interpretations are welcome.
