20-22.10.11 CreativExchange @ Lismore Show

20th to 22nd OCTOBER 2011: Serpentine Community Gallery

CreativExchange and Arts Cafe @ Lismore Show

daily, from 9am to midnight.

An interactive artistic hub and public gallery with workshops, demonstrations, art for sale,

an arts cafe and best of all you can check out artists live in action.

Local artists will be there to share their creative skills

and the public is invited to take a moment to chill

amongst all the action of the show

and be inspired.

'Bumping in' started about a week before the show: With the first batch of materials on site,

and the construction of the CreativExchange's cardboard structure underway,

Barry Thurston, Sue Alford and James Smythe watch and wait as a sudden down-pour

creates a mini flood around our freshly glued together walls! (Images: Corinne Batt-Rawden)

With the help of some colourful 'red skies at night' and

a great team of volunteers working hard to make it happen,

'our space' is ready for another year of creative show action.

Art supplies assembled and tables set-up ready for workshops, demos and individual creations.

Ready to answer or solve creative questions & problems, artist Claire Chatfield (in green) assists in the 'studio' space.

This Chang mural provides a hands-on-moment for all ages,

another, completed, shades and decorates (left).

Creativexchange cafe morning, noon and night: Corinne behind the counter serving potter Ray Moller, Dawn Thirlaway

takes a break from ceramic demonstrations to chat with barrista-of-the-day Trish, and hansdieter gives a helping hand.
