IAVA ART SALE at Clifton School of Arts

IAVA ART SALE at Clifton School of Arts

Everyone loves the buzz of a market. It’s the colour, movement and excitement… but most of all, it’s the bargains! The Illawarra Association for the Visual Arts (IAVA) is setting up  booths at Clifton School of Arts and will be presenting a fabulous array of beautiful things on Fri 6 – Sun 8 December.

 Says IAVA President Moira Kirkwood:  “We create and exhibit our artworks throughout the year, but there are always pieces that are left behind. We want them to find good homes and are prepared to make the price right!”

 There’s all sorts of works on show over the  three days, from Alannah Dreise’s collagraph prints of theatrical figures, to Gill Day’s bold and vigorous landscapes.

 Melissa Ritchie has just completed a solo show at Kiama. This in-demand artist is influenced by graphic art and vintage design, creating both portraits and contemporary pieces describing everyday life with a hyper-realistic style.

 Julie Donnelly is a multi-award winning abstract artist. “ I love playing with light in my paintings. I paint everything from the desert to the mountains and try to capture the varying illusions that light can create.”

  Arja Välimäki’s work is sold internationally. Her paintings are about the beauty of our oceans, and she recently sold many works at The Other Art Fair at Barangaroo, seen and enjoyed by thousands of Sydney-siders. She has still has one or two left for locals though, so get in quick!

 The artists would love to see you throughout the weekend and will be available to discuss their work.  Join the artists for Drinks at 2pm on Saturday.  All welcome.
