Art exhibition of talented residents on show at Kensington

There will once again be an art exhibition of the talented residents of Kensington Gardens at this year's open day.

One of the organisers, Wendy Drummond, said around eight artists will be exhibiting paintings with several groups who will be showcasing various art and craft.

“There will some interesting recycled denim jackets, pinafores, quilts, paintings and our resident textile artist Pat Meehan will be displaying her first prize in 'Natural Fibre Accessory' which she won at the Henty Field Days along with her other homemade felt and silk items,” said Wendy.

All works will be for sale on the day.

“Our artists are a mix of men and women and as this event has been very successful in the past, we are hoping to see some new artists exhibit their works this year.

“There are a good number of talented people in the estate with new ones coming on board all the time.

“This is the fourth time we have held the event over the past three years and we are looking to forward making next year’s event even bigger,” said Wendy.

Many of the creators behind the works will be in attendance at this year's show to chat with visitors about their creations.

The art exhibition can be found inside the country club and will be open from 10am to 4pm.

Estate manager Tony Lieschke said visitors should allow at least two hours to enjoy the open day, meet with residents, take in the exhibition and join in on lunch. 

A complimentary barbeque lunch will be provided and drinks will be available.
