Creative Arts Batemans Bay Inc.’s (CABBI) 37th Annual Art Exhibition will run from December 20, 2021 to January 6, 2022 at Batemans Bay High School on George Bass Drive, Batehaven. The exhibit offers local CABBI members the opportunity to display pieces they worked on during the COVID lockdown period. On display are a range of art forms, such as photography, crafts, fine arts, and sculpture by local Eurobodalla artists. The opening night will be on Monday, December 20 at 6 p.m. with guest speaker Ms. Di Jay, vice-president of the South Coast River of Art Festival. Ms. Jay has recently ventured into goldsmithing and jewelry design, but has been immersed in a range of art forms, from visual and performing arts to urban design and architecture. The public can visit the exhibition every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., but it is closed on Christmas Day. Snacks, alcoholic drinks and juices are available. Entrance is a donation of gold coins. Ms. Margaret Ainscow (fine arts) and Ms. Mirabel Fitzgerald (sculpture and craftsman) will judge the works of art, having both taught art and worked in Australia and around the world. Visitors will be able to vote for their favorite work, with the most popular work being awarded the People’s Choice Award. CABBI started in 1984 with a Gallery in the Bay founded by Ken Taber and a group of enthusiastic artists. Now CABBI runs “The Gallery” in Mogo, where they host an Outdoor group on Tuesdays and a social art group every Saturday. It is a collective of locals with varied artistic capacities, interested in developing their skills and experimenting with new techniques. An event such as the exhibition is also an opportunity for group members to gain experience in skills such as hanging, lighting and sponsorship. The exhibit will be COVID compliant and wheelchair accessible. For more information or for opportunities to get involved with CABBI, please send an email to: [email protected]
