Byron artists on show in council offices

IT'S fitting that in a region that boasts so many creative people, Byron Shire Council's administrative office's foyer should contain a corner devoted to art.

Affectionately known as The Cube - as the installation is basically a perspex and timber box - the smallest gallery in the shire, as it is commonly described, was set up two years ago to promote local three-dimensional Art.

South Golden Beach multi-disciplinary artist Claire Atkins, who works in ceramics, printmaking and fibre arts, is the latest to exhibit at The Cube.

Her collection called 'Fragile' is comprised of hand-crafted stained porcelain domestic ware that is meant to be admired as well as eaten off.

"It raises a banal activity like having a coffee into a ritual," says Claire of her works which are for sale.

Claire said "funky mums" tended to be her biggest customers.

The 'Fragile' exhibition will be staged for six weeks.

For inquiries about exhibiting at The Cube contact the curator Deborah Gower on 0408120358.
