Generation Next HYPERCOLOUR 2014!

On Friday November 21 Shockwave opened another big youth arts exhibition: Generation Next HYPERCOLOUR 2014!

The exhibition showcases artworks from young people who took part in Shockwave workshops and activities throughout the Central West Region from December 2013 – November 2014. Mayor of Winton, ‘Butch’ Lenton opened the exhibition by acknowledging all of the people who helped to put this fine art show on. Shockwave Producer, Sheree Banning was integral to the success and leadership of such a vibrant project and she also said a few words to welcome everyone and thank our funders.

Local young singer Emelie Williams performed 2 songs and we had the pleasure of seeing young circus performers show their new acrobatic skills, led by Tisi Hatcher – one of the Shockwave Artsworkers.

Painted mandalas, indigenous dot paintings, up-cycled rugs and wire sculptures are just some of the beautiful works still on display until 6th March 2015. Artworks are for sale – so get in quick!

Visual artist, Sue Loveday played a major role in curating the art exhibition in Winton and students learnt about what goes on behind the scenes of setting up a community exhibition. Sue has consistently delivered a hands-on approach with young people for Shockwave – and this year has been no exception.  Badge making, leatherwork, painting and sign writing were just some of the activities she put on for the last series of workshops before the exhibition.

So, that’s a wrap for 2014! We’re delighted we had such a big turnout at the exhibition and programs this year. Over 1100 young people have contributed to Shockwave workshops, showcases and the annual Shockwave Festival. Support and involvement from the Central West community has also continued to grow and we are so grateful for all of the volunteer hours many people put in – especially around festival time. We’ve also been very lucky to have the program co-ordinator support from Bec Callow in Blackall and Sally Eales at the Outback Regional Gallery, Winton. Thank you everyone – we can’t wait to see what is in store for Shockwave next year!

The Regional Arts Development Fund also supported the exhibition, which is an Arts Queensland and Winton Shire Council partnership that supports local arts and culture.
