Kingsley residents Valerie Teede and Myriam Quinn started the exhibition three years ago to offer a range of different art.

‘It’s not just about creating the same kind of art but moving (Kinetic) on and developing new styles ” using as many different mediums as we can find and making a happy and colourful exhibition that uplifts the people who come to see it,’ Teede said.

Merle Cranwell, also of Kingsley, joined the duo last year.

‘We invite other artists to exhibit, not only to offer variety but also to give emerging artists the opportunity to exhibit if they have not done so before,’ Teede said.

More than 120 people attended opening night last year, with about 600 people visiting the exhibition.

Quinn has lived in different countries across Europe and Asia and draws her inspiration from cultural experiences

Cranwell is trained in oil painting but also uses acrylics and mixed media for her works, while Teede works with copper on canvas, mixed media and sculpture.

Guest artist work will include sculpture, glasswork, recycled jewellery and fine art.
