Writing and art match made at Bas

Talented Eurobodalla writers will join forces with The Bas next month for the return of Eurobodalla Literary Salons.

This year local writers have been tasked with creating an original text inspired by an artwork in the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre’s current exhibition, the Basil Sellers Art Prize Retrospective.

Participating writers will read their story alongside the artwork that inspired them at salon events at the Bas over two nights.

On Wednesday 4 August Eileen Dillon-Smith, Karen Kentwell, Noel Smart, Rosie Toth, Stafford Ray, and Suzanne Newnham will share their work, followed by Anke Ziergiebel, Gary Keady, Laura Tyler, Linda Kennington, Louise Falcioni, and Sharon Halliday on Friday 6 August.

Attendance numbers are limited due to COVID this year however Zoom meetings are available for those who would like to attend online.

Eurobodalla Council’s creative arts development coordinator Indi Carmichael said the salons perfectly complemented The Bas’ programming by showcasing a diverse range of creativity.

“It is wonderful to see how the writers interpret the artworks and often give another perspective to what the artist originally envisaged,” she said.

“It makes for a very interesting and unique event where people can appreciate both art and literature.”
