Big first impression

A Shepparton artist group will host its first life drawing exhibition this weekend.

The Wednesday Nighters is a group of artists who have been meeting continuously for all except two weeks of the year since 1997.

Artist Tim Hocking said he started the group for like-minded people to have a place to gather and draw from live models.

Mr Hocking said this was the group’s first exhibition and the 10 artists in the group would all be contributing original pieces.

‘‘You can see a range of styles, approaches and interpretations of the human form in this exhibition,’’ Mr Hocking said.

He said the exhibition would include more than 30 pieces that would be displayed on the walls of artist Marion Langford’s house.

‘‘I think it gives people a better idea of how it (the art) can be put up in their home,’’ Mr Hocking said.

Ms Langford said the 1950s house named ‘‘Maude’’ would be the perfect venue for the exhibition.

‘‘It’s nice to be able to share my beautiful home,’’ she said.

‘‘To me, it’s like artists helping other artists.’’

Event organiser Anna Russell, who models for the Wednesday night sessions, said she was excited the artists were finally having an exhibition.

‘‘I’ve been telling them to do this for 12 years,’’ she said.

The exhibition’s opening night is tonight from 6pm to 9pm and will run from 11am to 5pm tomorrow and Sunday.

Maude can be found at 108 Maude St, Shepparton.
