MORE than 80 artists will showcase their work at an exhibition in Dianella this month.

Artist Graham Hay, whose studio is in Northbridge, said a piece of his pottery or sculpture work can take up to 30 years to compete, with all his experience culminating in one piece of art.

“I started these ones towards the end of one year and ran out of steam about a third into the next year so four months of evolution,” he said.

“Sometimes I’ll make two or three goes before I get it right.”

The exhibition will feature a range of mediums including painting, ceramics, drawing, jewellery, glass, wood, metal, felting and paper quilling.

Aboriginal art represented by Palya Fine Arts from throughout the western desert will again bring a large collection, and artists including Big Names: Pippin Drysdale, Jos Coufeur, Marc Leib, Ken Rassmusen, Neil Turner, Judith Paisley will be on show.

It is the second time this exhibition will be held after a sell out inaugural one last year that raised money for disadvantaged children at an Israeli school.
