Gungahlin artists showcase their creativity and community connections.

 

Northside Community Service is proud to have partnered with Belconnen Community Service to offer the first Gungahlin Impressions open art program held at Common Ground Canberra.

Gungahlin artists have been creating pieces in various mediums including sculpture, oil on canvas, air brush paintings, mosaic, pottery, ceramics and mixed media.

In creating her series of sculptures, local resident Lisa Beattie was inspired by “allowing the shapes to come to being, paying respect to the elements and acknowledging our impact.

The pieces will be touring Gungahlin starting at the Gungahlin Health Centre reception area from the 21st February 2018. They will then move in to the Gungahlin Library and will then be looking for other interested businesses/locations.

Gungahlin Impressions was led by the experienced artist Tony Steel. Tony has been creating public artworks around Canberra for the past twenty years. He has worked with various communities and school groups to create wonderful art works that enliven spaces. He loves working collaboratively and works with a range of different materials.

Gungahlin Impressions will be recommencing in 2018 in a new format. Have a look at our short video from 2017 below and if you are interested in getting involved please contact Michelle at Events@northside.asn.au
