A NEW exhibition celebrating bird and animal wildlife in art is opening this Friday called Shapes of Colour on Russell Island

RICArts (Russell Island Community Arts) is a not for profit community arts association situated on Russell Island, a part of the beautiful Bay Islands.

Nestled amongst the shady avocado orchard of Kennedy Farm, now called, The Farm, Art House and Gallery.

The gallery had a a very successful workshop by Gladstone artist, Marion Hughes in July with thanks to Redland Council for their kind grant which enabled RICArt to host this workshop.

On the August 7, RICArts held it’s second annual general meeting since becoming an incorporated association.

We are pleased to announce there was minimal change to our committee, although we warmly welcome Mandy Pearson into the role of secretary.

This month has also seen the laying of the foundation work for our new pottery shed.

There is great excitement and expectation for it’s completion in about six weeks.

August 17 is our opening night for an exhibition by Girt by Sea winner and artist, Kinga Rypinska.

It is her first solo exhibition on Russell Island. 

We are very excited to be offering this exhibition titled The Shapes of Colour.

Kinga is well known for her brilliant interpretations of bird and animal wildlife.

The Farm, Art House and Gallery, is now open five days a week between 9.30am – 12.30pm.

All welcome. Entry to The Farm is via Robert Street, Russell Island.
