OVER the long weekend a trail of interested art buffs wandered through the Five Ways Art Studio to view the Earth Arts Exhibition.

The collection included an array of paintings, textile art pieces, sustainable art, woodwork and sculptures and featured the painting of talented local artist, Robyn Elphick.

Robyn’s large paintings provided a vibrant and dramatic backdrop for the more subtle pieces with the mass of colourful splashes bringing the studio to life.

Dorothy Mulvihill from the Tumut Art Society, said they were pleased with the attendance across the three days.

“We had a steady stream of people come through over the weekend,” Mrs Mulvihill said. “Having a featured artist such as Robyn has been wonderful and adds another dimension to the exhibition.”

The interest in earth arts and sustainable art is growing with many local artists now embracing the movement. After a positive response to their works during the Lanterns on the Lagoon event, Eco Artisans Snowy Mountains duo, Annette Rolfe and Daragh McCallum, presented a small collection of works for the exhibition as well.

The inclusion of the Earth Arts Exhibition in the annual calender of events has brought a dynamic and ever expanding style of art to the public and showcased a contemporary medium.
