What an exciting day!.. I had been looking forward to today for the past couple of weeks (its also on tomorrow so if you haven't got down there yet please do so)..
The detainees from out at Scherger, also known as 'The Scherger Artists' .. have some AMAZINGGGGGG hidden talents that, lucky for us are now out on display..
Today (also tomorrow 5th Nov 2010, 10am till 3pm) the blokes are holding an art exhibition at the Weipa council chambers.. I am blown away with the incredible talent/ gift/ passion, that these guys have for what they do..
Incredibly many of the beautiful images are painted on the backs of cereal boxes.. that's a talent in itself hahaha..
I have made a small donation of art supplies to the guys (paints and canvas boards) and am really looking forward to seeing much more from them in the future..
They are all self taught and should be encouraged to keep going.. If you have any spare art supplies at home you could part with, I know some really talented guys that could put it all to use..
Once again.. If you haven't been down to the council chambers today.. PLEASE do so tomorrow, Its well worth it..
