A CAR has smashed through the wall of the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre, or at least that’s how it appears.
The eye-catching installation is part of an exhibition titled TA DA, which will open at noon on Saturday March 12.
The exhibition curated by the Art Centre’s gallery officer, Timothy George with the aim of connecting young artists with interactive public engagement.
The exhibition was an opportunity presented through the Arts and Cultural Public Program headed up by Tania Morandini.
It includes works that invite the public to play with home-made instruments, to hear what a bar code sounds like through the creation of Christopher Fulham and Paul Redman, sticker bombing and much more.
Last week, sculptures were erected ‘climbing’ the front of the Arts Centre and a car was installed –‘breaking through’ to the gallery wall from Egan’s Lane.
The climbing sculptures were created by local artist Elyssa Sykes-Smith who is currently enjoying success in WA overseeing her entry into Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe.
The car sculpture is a collaborative effort by locals Chris Anderson, Timothy George, Peter Dalmazzo and Aaron Gordon with assistance from council’s maintenance staff.
A 'Defacing the Masters’ workshop will be held on Saturday March 19 at 10am and resulting artworks will contribute to the exhibition.
This workshop is suitable for all ages but bookings are essential by phoning 4429 5444.
Also opening alongside TA DA is Megan Seres’ exhibition entitled ‘Fairytales, Myth and the Imaginative Tale’ – a blend of various narratives with a surrealistic Victorian Gothic sensibility.
