Face Value comes to Hurstville Museum & Gallery


Georges River Council is pleased to announce Face Value, a new art exhibition being presented at the Hurstville Museum & Gallery from 1 – 23 September 2018.

This exhibition has been created by emerging artists from Mental Health Arts Development (MHAD), a program of Jubilee Community Services.

Inspired by guest tutors, Bebe Zekirovski, Maree Zavarise and Janet Selby, ‘Face Value’ explores perceptions and representations of self and others using a variety of mediums including photography, mosaics, painting and mixed media.

The exhibition explores how aspects of personality or life experience may be suggested in the placement of an image, juxtaposed with related objects, colours, tones, textures and even framing.

This group of talented artists, who are all experiencing or caring for someone managing or recovering from mental illness, meets regularly at St George Creative Art & Craft Centre in Penshurst, developing various art-form skills in a relaxing and supportive environment.

Face Value was supported by the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Fund and Club Central.

Official opening: Saturday 8 September 2018, 2.00pm
All welcome
