11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Riverton Community Arts Centre,
149 Palmerston Street,
The result of 10 weeks of collaboration between C.S. Art students alongside their tutor and C.S. Art Co-founder, Michelle Dawson and local Riverton artist and larger than life personality, Wayne Hill, these sculptural works were produced in a classroom within G3 at The Southern Institute of Technology. Each student chose their own subject, from their own life experience and preferences to create something valuable and unique to them.
Complementing the sculptures are artworks installed on the gallery walls, giving a glimpse into the life and world of the students currently attending C.S. Art, which has its home in the WEA Building in Invercargill. C.S. Art classes operate specifically for people with disabilities and/or mild mental illness alongside tutors Alana Brett, Gina van Wichen and Michelle Dawson.
C.S. Art is in its 15th year of operation from humble beginnings in June 2004, hiring a room behind St. Mary’s Basilica in Invercargill and welcoming 4 students. It now welcomes 40 students, has 3 part time tutors and 8 trustees or committee members. It is a place of inspiration, peace, healing and creative pursuit for all who are connected with it.
