It seems that the beach is about to be blown away this week and I wonder whether any sand will be left by the weekend. Thankfully we have the Bondi Pavilion’s free gallery exhibitions to keep us entertained while this wild weather pushes us back from the water’s edge.
The current exhibition, coincidently titled ‘Art at the water’s edge’, features the work of members of the Randwick Art Society.
Exhibiting artists have explored themes related to water and how humans, animals and vegetation interact with it. On display are many wonderful paintings of Bondi and the surrounding beaches, each offering its own unique interpretation on our beloved ocean playground.
From the lines left in the sand by the tide, to ripples in a river from a skipping stone, Randwick Art Society will present a diverse, exciting and emotionally enriching representation of this vital life force.
According to Randwick Art Society representatives, the organisation has in excess of 100 artists and craftspeople of varied ages and backgrounds who work across a broad range of mediums. Many of the group have exhibited widely in Sydney and have received many prizes and accolades.
This is a wonderful exhibition featuring a diverse array of artists and mediums – there really is something to appeal to every taste and budget.
My personal favourite is the work of Gorica Solar who hand paints shoes – what a great way to up-cycle some old heels that you were about to get rid of! All of her works are for sale, however you might be better off finding a place to display them rather than getting such beautiful artworks scuffed.
The exhibition runs until October 4 and is open from 10am-5pm daily.
