THE Currambine Joondalup Art and Craft Show will celebrate 10 years of bringing art to the community this weekend.

The three-day exhibition and art sale is Currambine Primary School’s biggest yearly event and includes two days of children’s activities starting tomorrow and a family fete on Sunday.

More than 400 people are expected to attend tomorrow’s opening night.

Marketing and public relations manager Rochelle Taylor said art show favourite Greg Baker would return this year to exhibit recent works.

‘The coastal waters of WA, particularly around Rottnest Island, allow him (Baker) to display a remarkable ability to paint the play of light on water,’ she said.

‘His annual pilgrimages to Europe provide him with the opportunity to capture its countryside, villages and cities, particularly Paris and Venice, with an outsider’s eye and a devotee’s heart.’

Greg’s paintings have displayed in London, Berlin, Singapore and Hong Kong and throughout Australia.

Guest artist John Cartwright will display his landscape works inspired by WA’s South-West.

Each school student will also display work throughout the weekend.

‘Students and teachers have been learning about artists, their desire to create and their willingness to take chances with different mediums,’ Mrs Taylor said.

Opening night tickets are available at the door or by calling 9304 0011.
