An Exhibition

Artist Books created by the students

Linocuts, SOLD!

The exciting climax of our ambitious project finally took place last week. We had an exhibition of our printmaking at the Colac Otway Performing Arts and Cultural Centre (COPACC). The exhibition was the opening event for COPACC’s Book Week Activities. Colac’s Mayor, the honourable Ms. Lyn Russell presided over the festivities. It was attended by parents, teachers and friends and the childrens’ work was a sellout. Even the press was there! The Colac Herald covered the event and interviewed Stirling about his Bridge to Vietnam Book for the article. And there he was in the paper the very next edition.The children all participated in the opening speech and talked about their work most eloquently.

Thanks again to all of the staff and students at Beeac Primary School. It has been a highlight of my career to be your Artist is School’s Artist! And as I have said to you students before, you are all very talented and capable of making striking artworks as well as being kind, courteous, resourceful and fun people!

See you all soon I hope,
Teresa Culkin-Lawrence.
