Go check out OLSEN ORMANDY: a creative force, the new exhibition at Newcastle Art Gallery.
It’s a bright colourful exhibition by Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy, the artists behind Dinosaur Designs, an iconic Australian lifestyle brand.
The exhibition features more than 50 works of art and sculptures. It’s a vibrant show filled with large pieces and is sure to generate some discussion about art and creativity with your kids.
If you have kids that like to touch things, this probably isn’t the best exhibition for them. It’s best aimed to those with babies in strollers or baby carriers or older kids, or better yet, come without the kids if possible.
If you do bring your kids, attend on a Saturday or Sunday morning and let the kids participate in Art Cart. It’s a free hands-on art session running from 10:30am to 12:30pm which engages kids with the current exhibitions through discussion and art making.
The OLSEN ORMANDY exhibition is free entry and runs until 17 February 2019 at Newcastle Art Gallery. Make sure you check out the Dinosaur Designs range available in the Gift Shop. There’s some beautiful pieces.
