Colour City Creatives Frost Fest Exhibition

BY Joy Engelman | 16-Jul-2012

Four times a year and coinciding with local festivals, the artists throw open the doors of the Barracks Galleries and Studios to the public and you are invited in to smell the oil paint, explore the studio spaces, be inspired by the exhibitions and demonstrations as the individual artists talk to you about their arts practice; what inspires them, why they chose to 'do art', what materials they use, what seduces their minds into action! You are invited to come into this mostly private place and share in their guarded secrets and experience the art first hand with the artist themselves to explain the driving forces and inspiration behind the works. Or you can come along to their opening night party and celebrate the arts with good food, fine wine and laughter. Everyone is welcome at the Barracks! Opening Night Party: Friday 3 August at 7 pm
