More than 200 sculptures on display at Gatakers Artspace

FRENCH-Israeli artist Ariella Anderson has used her art to feel at home in Bargara.

More than 200 pieces she has sculpted over the past two years are be on display at Gatakers Artspace in a travelling exhibition named Shades of Time.

The environments that have influenced the works range from all over the world, to her time spent as a farmer in Israel to a piece dubbed "Raging River", after the floods that tore through Bundaberg.

Mrs Anderson even used soil from the Bargara environment to dye fabrics that form part of the exhibit.

"It allows me to create a bond with my environment," she said.

She said the exhibition reflected the different tastes of people who come from different countries.

Shades of Time will open alongside two other exhibits, included ImPressed and an unnamed collection of drawings and paintings.

ImPressed features the work of 25 Wide Bay artists and their different techniques of print-making.

Co-curator and featured artist Jennifer Rogers said it grew out of the print-making classes that began running at Gatakers Artspace last year.

It took two days to set up and includes printing on paper, wood and more unexpected materials.

All three exhibits will open today at Gatakers Artspace in Maryborough and will run until the end of the month.
