The Creative Connections Art and Poetry Exhibition, which will run from August 30 until September 11, brings together artists with disabilities and poets who produce work for each of the pieces.

This will be the eighth year of the event, with 53 artists and 44 poets ” including Hamilton Hill star Amanda Joy ” taking part.

Art teacher Natalie Scholtz said Ms Marcolina’s work was ‘a composition full of bold movement and colour’, and was produced over several weeks.
