3D art at Blackheath

This weekend, the Blackheath Art Society will hold its first exhibition dedicated to 3D artforms. The show will include a wide range of interesting work including sculpture, curated by artist Mishka Borowski, who has worked with installation art, exhibiting at a number of galleries including the MCA.

Exhibitors compete for a first prize of $500 and a second prize of $250, funded by the Society and a donation from Mayor Mark Greenhill. The judge is Ron Fitzpatrick of Talisman Art Gallery in Hartley. Ron is a metal artist, and at his gallery/studio creates and sells a unique and intriguing range of metal art mirrors, clocks, candle holders, oil burners and wall art sculptures.

The new exhibition has been added to the Blackheath Art Society’s regular calendar of exhibitions, making it their fourth annual show along with the Winter Exhibition (June long weekend), the Easter Exhibition (Easter long weekend) and the Blackheath Art Prize (October long weekend).

“We established this exhibition because we have so many artists who work in 3D and we really weren’t able to do their work justice in our other exhibitions,” said Nina Lipscombe, Exhibition Co-ordinator. “This show makes sure that we can give all our members the opportunity to exhibit the full range of their work.”

The exhibition runs on Saturday and Sunday, October 22 and 23r, 10am-5pm each day at the Society’s studio 139a Station Street Blackheath. On Saturday, everyone is welcome to the ‘Meet the Artists’ and prize-giving at 2.30pm. There will be wine and nibbles, and visitors can also vote for the ‘People’s Choice’ – the work that the public likes best – at any time during the exhibition.
