Open Sessions Are Back At Griffith Regional Art Gallery

Tuesday, 31 May 2022

Open Sessions Are Back At Griffith Regional Art Gallery A series of art workshops called Open Sessions are on offer from June at the Gallery for people to delve into a preferred discipline or to try something new.
Griffith Regional Art Gallery Coordinator, Ray Wholohan said, “Following the success of our first Open Sessions, we are excited to continue to present the community once again a varied collection of programs that will focus on some of the core art disciplines.”
Last term's Open Sessions included a combination of art talks, demonstrations and workshops with art forms ranging from Digital Art to Sculpture delivered by local artists.
"All the sessions were booked out due to their popularity. We received some wonderful feedback from participants, some being regular Gallery attendees and some new faces too. We're looking forward to delivering many more engaging Open Sessions,” Mr Wholohan said.
The Gallery has invited back local artist Rhonda Miranda to offer a four-week workshop on portraiture and oil painting. Participants will bring in a portrait photograph of their choice and will discover the process of creating a completed piece in oils throughout the course.
The Gallery’s Public Programs Officer, Melanie Toscan said, “We developed the sessions to offer the community a space to explore their preferred art disciplines or the opportunity to experience something completely new. We’re so pleased to have local artist Rhonda Miranda back offering her invaluable experience and knowledge.”
Other programs during this term will feature artists from within the Gallery’s own staff with Gallery Coordinator, Raymond Wholohan, offering a music and art session and Ms Toscan providing textile art sessions on felting and embroidery.
Open Sessions are available to those 16 years and over and the first session will commence 6pm Wednesday 1 June with Rhonda Miranda teaching portraiture and oils.
Tickets can be purchased at the Gallery or online www.griffithregionalartgallery.com.au
