DESPITE being around for about 10 years, the Willagee Community Art Group is putting on its first exhibition.

The exhibition Diversity will be on display at the Rockingham Art Centre from March 1 to 6 and promises a variety of works.

The group regularly meets at the Willagee Community Centre on Mondays, where they critique and help each other.

Success artist Lynnette Bell said there would be a range of mediums and styles on display.

“We’ve talked about putting on an exhibition for the past few years and an opportunity came up at the (Rockingham) Arts Centre,” she said.

“I’ve asked each artist to provide a bio and we will have people from the public to ask questions about their artwork.

“I’ll be presenting an artist talk at 10am on March 3.”

Bell said some of the artists had won awards while others had not had their work on display.

“We are a friendly group who enjoys coming together and encouraging each other,” she said.

“Although we are older artists, we are always evolving and for me, I went from paintings to junk mail sculptures.

“I’ll have eight sculptures in the exhibition from recycled materials.”
