Hazelhurst Arts Centre will be holding its first ‘At Night’ evening for the year on Friday May 25 where there will be 3 hours of art, music, talks, Fijian inspired food and drinks in the gallery’s café from 6-9pm and where you can visit Nicole Barakat to find out what the future holds for you.
‘At Night’ is a popular evening for Hazelhurst where people can see the current exhibition Vanishing Point, listen to the exhibiting artists talk about their works in the gallery space, engage in some family art making, enjoy music, great food and a glass of wine and have the opportunity to join the ten minute gallery tours.
The current exhibition Vanishing Point is an artist-initiated project by an all-female collective with diverse practices and cultural backgrounds. The exhibition considers the island as a concept where opposing ideas meet. It is a separate entity that is isolated, detached yet contained, removed and potentially unreachable. The five artists consider this in connection to political and personal viewpoints
During ‘At Night’ people can enjoy and participate in a number of activities:
- Listen to the artists talk about their works in the gallery space;
- Families can visit the Fantasy Island family zone and enjoy lively storytelling, art making and face painting.
- Try Shadow Drawing: No Man is an Island where light is used to project your shadow onto hanging paper and then you trace the outline of your silhouette. Shadows of family/friends can be layered against your own.
- Interested to know what the future holds for you. Visit the mystic alcove and have your coffee cup read by Nicole Barakat.
More than 5,000 people have enjoyed Hazelhurst’s At Night events since they began in 2014.
