Exhibition Launch: 13 January 2017
It was after studying fine arts at Singleton TAFE that the 8 Artists formed - Anne Bray, Stacey Cox, Janice Hanicar, Hope Hardy, Janelle McCloy, Julia McNaught and Hilma Thomas - brought together by a mutual interest to meet on a regular basis, share knowledge and encourage one another's art practice.
With the assistance of Arts Upper Hunter Regional Director, Bridget Nicholson and Sister Monica of the Mercy Convent, Singleton the 8 Artists were able to acquire the use of the old kitchen at the Mercy Convent one day per week on a permanent basis.
8 Artists: Different Strokes is representative of each artists’ interpretation of their surroundings achieved through a wide variety of forms, mediums, techniques and interests - as diverse as the individual artists themselves.
