OIL, watercolour and acrylic works of art, drawings and photography produced by members of U3A will be on display at the Ipswich Community Gallery in D’Arcy Doyle Place, Ipswich Central from this Friday through to Tuesday, November 22.
Admission is free the exhibition will be open daily from 10am to 2pm.
The artists are from U3A Ipswich and West Moreton and this is the second joint exhibition in Ipswich.
Photography Tutor and organiser of the exhibition, Wayne McDonnell, said the members of these classes are excited to have their work hanging in an exhibition to be viewed by their family and friends as well as the public.
“They have all worked hard building their individual skills to enable them to exhibit their work,” he said.
“This exhibition recognises the value of the arts and artists in a small way that will hopefully lead to more emphasis being places on the ‘Arts’ in this community.”
“The U3A recognises the value of the arts to those in the community who have retired from the paid workforce and are looking to increase their learning and meet new friends”
“It emphasises the importance U3A is as a valuable organisation in our city.”
The idea of an organisation, like U3A, run solely by volunteers is inspirational especially today with such busy lives, giving time to help others is what U3A does. Our key organisational value is, ‘Valuing volunteers, the core of the organisation.’
