Domestic and family violence hurts kids too

3 web
Children are often the forgotten victims in domestic violence, but it doesn’t take much to imagine just how fearful and unsafe it is for children to grow up in an environment that is unstable and violent.
The Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee Wash Away Violence Project was aimed at raising awareness of the impact of family abuse on children. Even if not in the room, children can be affected and the impact can be lifelong without intervention!
The Campbelltown Domestic Violence Committee invited local artists to support the project and three world acclaimed Wedderburn Gorge Artists painted two T shirts each.   These T Shirts are now available for Auction to raise funds for the Committee to continue to raise awareness and reduce violence against children.
Three of the T shirts have been framed by Three P’s Picture Framing who donated the frames and their valuable professional time.  (Three P’s Picture Framing can be contacted on: 0415 596 414).

ORIGINAL ART WORK by

 THE ARTISTS

 The Gorge Artists Colony, Wedderburn

The Wedderburn artistic community is an informal group of Australian contemporary artists ... based around Wedderburn including well known artists like Elisabeth Cummings, Roy Jackson, John Peart, David Hawkes, Suzanne Archer, David Fairbairn and others.

DAVID FAIRBAIRN

David Fairbairn, is an Australian painter and printmaker who was the winner of the Dobell Prize for Drawing in 1999. He has been selected as a Dobell Prize Finalist fifteen times, won the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize in 2002 and has been exhibited in the Archibald Prize eight times.    David Fairbairn’s work is on display at the Art Gallery NSW.

DAVID HAWKES

David Hawkes's practice is primarily concerned with paintings of abstract landscape.    WEDDERBURN artist David Hawkes has captured the beautiful bushland surrounding his home of almost 30 years as the inspiration for an exhibition of his work at Campbelltown Arts Centre. David has lived at Wedderburn since 1989 and his exhibition showed about 30 paintings.

SUZANNE ARCHER

Archer describes her work as ‘figurative/abstract’, which is really a way of saying she doesn’t recognise a dividing line between these two categories.  she has had more than forty solo exhibitions, with Archer diversifying into drawing, printmaking, sculpture, artists’ books and installation. She has won numerous awards, from the Wynne Prize for Landscape in 1994, to the Dobell Prize for Drawing in 2010, and the most recent Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, held late last year in Wollongong.  Recent Exhibition at Campbelltown Art Gallery – the Song of the Cicada and her  work is displayed at the NSW Art Gallery.
