These miniature sculptures Feather Tail Glider and Puggle are carved by Warwick Saxby from wood in the Japanese style of netsuke. Theyre part of an exhibition Earthly Connections, Art for the Body, Mind and Spirit that opens this Saturday, January 19. Three local artists - Heather Kimber, Shirley Miller and Warwick Saxby - will display their artistic wares.
The show will be held at the studio and gallery of painter Shirley Miller, at Jarlanbah Community in Cecil Street, Nimbin, under the Nightcap ranges.
All three artists will be there to discuss their artworks, and therell be ongoing demonstrations of the artists at work throughout the exhibition. (Probably a bit of drinking going on too if I know artists at work...)
Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and relax in the gardens. Refreshments are also available. Opening hours are between 10am and 5pm daily. The exhibition runs until Monday, January 28.
