While the World Waits

Starts: Saturday, 06 August 2022, 12:00 am
Ends: Saturday, 27 August 2022, 12:00 am
In 2021, Arts OutWest commissioned 15 central west songwriters across 11 local government areas in the region to each write a song reflecting their experiences of 2020. They created a compilation album of original music. It was titled While the World Waits. They heard what it felt like. Now show me what it feels like… In 2022, artists from across the Central West have been asked to use the CD as a jumping off point and inspiration for new work. This unique opportunity for regional visual artists to create artworks in response to regional music has been a labour of love for Arts OutWest. While the World Waits Exhibition is a curated exhibition in which selected artists each respond to one or more tracks, title or words on the album. The exhibition will showcase work from across all mediums. You will see painting, sculpture, drawing, ceramics, moving image, animation, photography, glass and textiles. Opening event Saturday 6 August 2-4pm will include a live musical performance by a musical artist from the original album. Image: 'Resonance and reverberation, 2022' Mixed media on paper, 50x70cm by Canowindra artist Heather VALLANCE Gallery is open Friday and Saturday 9am-3pm. Sunday and Monday 10am-12.30pm.
