Local singers display artistic talents in new exhibition

Posted 18 May 2011 by (Hurstville News)

Repertoire showcases the great work of established and emerging artists across a broad spectrum of art mediums including photography, ceramics, 3D art works, oil, acrylic and watercolour paintings.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Philip Sansom said the exhibition is most unique as it highlights not only the great talents of local community members but also draws on their interests and life experiences in their artworks.

“One artist, Bernie Breen, has superbly captured the clear light and beauty of the Australian outback with his photographic series whilst pursuing his love of travel,” he said.

“The exhibition also showcases works from well-known local artists including Judy Lawler, Margaret Whitehurst and Kathy Curtiss, as well as emerging artists such as Lesley Breen who is passionate about working with bright, strong colour.”

Mayor Sansom said Council is committed to promoting arts in the Hurstville community.

“The Hurstville City Museum and Gallery regularly presents art by individuals and groups from a diverse cross-section of the community,” he said.

“Council is proud to provide gallery space for local artists to share their work with the Hurstville community as it encourages cultural expression.”

The official opening of Repertoire will be held on Saturday, 4 June 2011 at 1.00pm. All welcome. Sing Australia Sutherland Choir will perform at the opening. The exhibition will run until 2 July 2011.

There will also be a special free sing- a –long event with Repertoire on Saturday, 25 June 2011 from 11.00am with members of Sing Australia Sutherland, at the Hurstville City Museum and Gallery.

The community can join in singing a variety of classic hits from some of the greatest performers of all time including Neil Diamond, ABBA, Cat Stevens, songs from musicals and gospel.
