Works the budding artists created in workshops facilitated by Debbie Wills and Janice Graham were shown as part of the special exhibition.
The art event was held at Deniliquin’s Multi Arts Centre as part of the project Studio 2710, which Yallambee Finley participates in.
Studio 2710 started earlier this year, and involves local tutors working in the mediums of visual arts, photography, music and drama, sharing their knowledge with local disabled people.
South West Arts partnered with the International Day of People with a Disability (IDPWD) committee for two days of activities and celebrations which included the exhibition.
A highlight of the two days was the silent art auction which South West Arts regional arts development officer Alyce Fisher said was an enormous success.
‘‘Studio 2710 featured a stunning visual arts exhibition and more than $1000 worth of artworks were sold.
‘‘It was been a huge success, we hope to be able to continue to partner with local disability service providers and local artists to ensure the program’s sustainability.’’
This project was made possible by the Australian Government’s regional arts program.
