Let there be art at the show

THERE will be more than the traditional and popular farm animals at this year's North Coast National Show in Lismore, with students from Southern Cross University displaying their artistic talents.

Bachelor of Arts student Tiffany Sassafriass yesterday gave The Northern Star a peek at her work which she calls The Lost Dolls.

“It's about childhood memories and lost childhood,” she said.

Ms Sassafriass used about 100 dolls of varying size, creating 17 teepees.

She is one of a group of first and second year students who are vying to have their work displayed at the show in the SCU arts space.

SCU lecturer in digital art design Leonie Lane said the best works will be displayed in an arts space focusing on sustainability.

The university will also be running workshops teaching showgoers the delights of camphor wood carving and paper moulding on the Saturday, and possibly on the Thursday when school children attend.

Films by animation students will also be screened during the show, Ms Land said.

The North Coast National runs from October 22 until October 24.
