‘Our Creative Community’
The 2021 hope springs online Art Exhibition was launched on 22 October. The curator, Natasha Dewhirst, described the exhibition as ‘a window into the artistic and creative expressions of the hope springs community‘.
The strength and resilience of the community is clearly demonstrated through the range of artwork available. Some of the artwork has been created by members working together – including a collection of origami figures and an installation of crocheted wind spinners.
There are also many individual pieces created with paint, pens, pencils, textas, pastels, linocut prints, computer software – and even a piece of art contributed by Beau the dog! There are also poems and two members of the community performing original songs.
The exhibition is dedicated to the memory of beloved community member, Lindsay Hopley, who passed away in January 2021.
The complete video of the exhibition is included below. (Well worth watching!)
