EXHIBITION OPENING: Bali Art Studio - Art Exhibition
|Bali Art Studio - Art Exhibition : Opening Reception: 6 to 8.30pm Friday, 20 October | Cullity Gallery, UWA.
The University of Western Australia is delighted to present a community art exhibition in collaboration with the John Fawcett Foundation.
Bali Eye IV (Kamadpalla) aims to raise funds to support the 'Adopt a Village' program run by the John Fawcett Foundation to fund eye clinics in Balinese villages. 'Adopt a Village' supports economically disadvantaged communities in Bali by raising much-needed funds.
The exhibition will showcase artwork created by UWA students who have worked with local Balinese artists through UWA’s Bali Art Studio program.
The exhibition is free for the public to attend and the artwork at the event will be available for sale with prices ranging from $65 per artwork to $300. All proceeds will support the 'Adopt a Village' program.
Paul Trinidad, UWA unit coordinator of the Bali Art Studio program said the study program was unique because it was an immersive cultural experience of a lifetime.
“During this unit, students spend two weeks in Bali – living in Bali’s oldest hotel, meeting the local community, visiting the Royal Palace in Denpasar and taking part in a traditional cleansing ceremony,” he said.
“Our goal is to gain knowledge as we contribute to the people of Bali and continue to raise enough funds to run two village eye clinics each year, coinciding with UWA’s Bali Art Studio visits in January and July.”
Since September 2015, students who attend UWA’s Bali Art Studio have assisted in raising over $10,000 from scholarship funding, by selling their artwork, collecting community donations, and organising raffles, to raise enough money for the fourth eye clinic to be held in Bali in the January 2018 study program.
