Unisson artists participate in Exploration Exhibition
Unisson is thrilled to announce that seven talented artists, who attend our paper art studio in Pymble and ceramics studio in Frenchs Forest, are participating in the Exploration Exhibition hosted by the Ku-ring-gai Art Centre from the 11th- 25th of July 2019.
The local art exhibition, organised by Ku-ring-gai council, encourages artists with a disability to promote their work, share the inspirations behind their work and, if they wish, to sell their artworks. All participating artists will receive a certificate, presented by Major Jennifer Anderson, and will be in the running for the People’s Choice Award for the most popular artwork.
The artists who have submitted their paper studio pieces are Kim Merrick and Leanne Christian, along with ceramics studio artists, Fred Broso, Rosa Tryholowa, Christine McAndrew and Suzanne Sorrell. Artist Venessa Crane, who regularly attends both art studios submitted an artwork created using 3D drawing software.
These artists have created inspirational pieces to be displayed at the exhibition. If you are interested in seeing these artworks and others, entry is free, and artworks will be displayed until the 25th of July at the Ku-ring-gai Art Centre, 3 Recreation Avenue, Roseville.
Take a look at our artists and their artworks below.
Fred has been attending Unisson Ceramic Studio for almost a year and during that time he has created a series of amazing clay artworks. Fred says "Last year I made a teapot, a sugar bowl, a car, a scone tray and a cabbage bowl using a cabbage leaf as a stamp and lots of other things"
Fred Broso's artwork titled 'Tuscany' - his Italian Heritage and love for cooking is the inspiration for his functional and decorative pieces. Fred currently has a dedicated solo display of his work in Warringah Mall Library.

Rosa's artwork of 3 glazed ceramic earthware houses, titled 'Building a Village' - .
"I just like ceramics, it makes me happy... I'm happy to show off my latest ceramic houses to lots of people" said Rosa.
Leanne's artwork titled 'Miffy' is made with paper pulp on handmade paper.
"Leanne is a talented artist who has been attending the Unisson Paper and Ceramic studios for many years. Leanne is always enthusiastic to try new techniques and challenges. She has participated in many exhibitions and is always proud to show off her work" said Sharyn Sonter, Ceramics Art Facilitator, Frenchs Forest.
Christine's artwork features ceramic earthenware fish on driftwood, titled 'Hangin Out'.
Kim Merrick's artwork 'Big Bird' is made with paper pulp on handmade paper.
Venessa's artwork 'Quack Universe' features many 'Quack' characters engaged in different activities. To create the artwork, Venessa used a 3d paint program to individually create each 'Quack' using 3d shapes. She then used Photoshop to create the background and finished artwork.
"I started attending art classes at Unisson 2 1/2 years ago. I have had the privilege of being in Sharyn’s ceramic class and also Juliette‘s paper pulp painting class where I have developed many skills. These have helped me create many versions of my art - all based on my version and creative interpretation of Quack inspired by Donald Duck. These two wonderful facilitators encouraged me to submit to the Exploration Exhibition my own digital art piece 'Quack Universe'," said Venessa.
