Inspired by Art

23 April – 22 May

This exhibition showcases a major body of work developed by the participants of the Inspired by Art program. Launched in 2014 Inspired by Art is an inclusive, accessible visual arts class, open to art-lovers living with disability, and other creative locals. The class work together to create expressive artworks that are inspired by the exhibitions at the Blue Mountains City Art Gallery. Led by local artist Clare Delaney, the class has become a community united by a love of art and expression that help each other to discover and grow their abilities. This exhibition showcases new works in variety of mediums including clay, paint and collage, as well as large scale collaborative paintings made in 2021 and 2022.

The Inspired by Art program and exhibition is generously supported by program patrons Wendy Farrell-Whelan and Theresa Kojta, in memory of Daniel Kojta.

We also thank Greystanes for their support of the program.
