If you haven’t had the pleasure of attending the celebrated Byron Arts Classic yet – Let me fill you in. Run over Easter, The Byron Arts Classic is an annual 7-day celebration of inspiration, creativity and involvement in the visual arts. It is an inclusive community art exhibition featuring over 300 works by local artists.
With the vital help of over 50 volunteers, we manage to convert the entire Centre into a massive art gallery. The Theatre becomes a three-tiered gallery with a floor-to-gantry sculpture garden surrounded by paintings, photographs and works on paper. This extends to the upper level where many of the smaller works are intimately displayed.
Conference rooms are miraculously (well, painstakingly) transformed into beautiful bright galleries featuring everything from intricate works on paper to ready-made sculptures.
Upstairs and down the foyers, stairwell, conference rooms and every little space in-between are filled with artworks from our community. You will find emerging visual artists hanging side by side with established artists. It really is a sight to behold.
Once the 7 days are up, everything vanishes as though it never happened.
With one, maybe two artworks exhibited by each artist we’re afforded just a brief glimpse of each artist. We want to see more. This is the first of a series of BCC blog posts featuring Arts Classic Artists. Over the coming months we’ll be delving a little deeper into the world of our much-loved local artists, Sharing collections, statements and intimate stories from our favourite Byron Arts Classic artists.
Our first Byron Arts Classic Featured Artist is Sabine Brosche.
I work in a variety of mediums and love experimenting with new ideas and
materials. My main passion and inspiration is always the natural world.
I often recycle materials. I am intrigued by what can be created without
buying / consuming more (art) stuff.
