Kindamindi Preschoolers have been channelling their inner Picasso to create stunning pieces for an art exhibition opening for viewing at the Inverell Art Gallery on August 31.
For the past few weeks, the young artists have been painting canvases to reflect their own creativity using a wide variety of mediums such as ink and paint.
Inverell Art Gallery manager Jane Peterkin encouraged members of the community to view the pieces of art during opening hours from Monday.
"Usually they have an opening night but because of COVID-19, the exhibit will be open for viewing only until October 2. Bookings are recommended," she said.
Staff at Kindamindi Preschool have been working closely with their students to encourage expression through art, sharing of ideas, interest and processes.
This year, the exhibition will act as a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis. The gallery is open Monday to Friday from 10am until 4pm and on Saturday from 10am until 1pm.
Kindamindi staff have been working with the Inverell Art Gallery to put together and hang the exhibition prior to the viewing, and look forward to showcasing the talents of local children.
There is a wide variety of creative pieces that will capture the interest of all. Previously, the exhibition has raised money for other causes with an auction and raffle.
Meanwhile, the Inverell Art Gallery pottery studio will re-open in early September.
Jane said the Inverell Art Society took time during the COVID-19 closure to prepare the studio for a virus-safe space for all within the community interested in getting creative with ceramics.
"Mud Chuckers is a social group that get together at the Inverell Art Gallery pottery studio with collective interest in everything clay," she said.
Those interested in pottery can contact the Inverell Art Gallery on 6722 4983 for more information.
