THE RETURN OF THE TARTS
In general terms, how successful and popular a project is regarded by the public will usually be gauged by the length of time that its success lasts and whether or not there is an opportunity for it to either continue or return in a re-invented form.
With this in mind, one can only regard the upcoming eighth annual exhibition by the thirteen members of the Art Tarts as an accurate indicate indication of just how much talent these artists have. Art Tarts spokesperson Bev Porter told me that the exhibition in the Mathew Flinders Gallery at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre will be a celebration of creativity.
‘It brings together thirteen very talented artists who work with a diverse variety of mediums,’ said Bev. ‘These include painting, drawing, ceramics dichroic glass and slumped glass as well as stained glass, mosaics, jewellery, gumleaf art and china painting,’ she explained. The exhibition will be on display from November 13th until November 25th those who wish will have an opportunity to meet the artists from 6.30 pm until 8 pm on the first evening. As has been the case at past Art Tarts Exhibitions, works by the participating artists will be raffled to support the Dragons Abreast movement.
