Artist of The Month for Orange Art Society

Artist of the Month

I was honoured to be selected as Orange Art Society’s “Artist of The Month” beginning March 8 until April 10th.

The Artists of the Month exhibition was a great success despite being interrupted with a brief closure due to the Covid-19 circumstances. I wish to thank all those who weather the interruption and adjusted to altered opening times. Thank you for your support.

The show featured 20 ‘bird motif’ works executed in various mediums including oil on canvas and mixed mediums on paper.

Bird motif art works have, over the years, been a passion of mine. I have executed images in various artistic styles. The works in this exhibition fall under what might best be described as the ‘expressionistic’ approach.  

I have tried to capture what I consider the ‘worldliness’ of bird life. How their presents compliments the complexity of the other life forms that make up our environment. How without their ‘being’, there would be a painful void in the world.

This effort was part of the exhibition of the Orange Art Society held at the Orange Cultural Centre and was available for viewing from March 8th through the 10th of April 2020. The Centre is located off Sale Street in the Woolworth car park. The exhibition was open to the public from March 8 through until April 10. Entry into Centre is through the doors on the Woolworth side of the building just across from Harris Farm. Admission is free and the exhibition was open most days.

An article for the art exhibition was published in the Orange Life Magazine. Please read the article for Hank Spirek Artist of the Month through the link.

For anyone interested in visiting the Orange Cultural Centre and viewing the artworks on display, please drop by. If the door is open and the banner flying come on in!
