Artists band together for exhibition

Cambridge artists Henriette Mathiesen, Terry White, Susan Rickard (standing), Cara Fotofili (sitting) and John White will collectively display around 80 of their paintings at the upcoming exhibition running May 3 -5.

A team of Cambridge artists are banding together to form their own exhibition.

Henriette Mathiesen, a hairdresser in Cambridge, started out painting as a hobby.

The paintings sparked conversation after hanging a few up in her salon, and eventually the idea formed to share the work of Cambridge’s budding artists.

“We were all a bit shy and anxious about doing much with our art so I suggested we all pool together our work and have our own exhibition,” said Henriette. “We have been talking about it for over a year!”

The exhibition has been set for May 3 – 5, with a special opening night this Friday, May 3, starting 6pm.

Henriette will be joined by Cambridge artists Terry White, John White, Susan Rickard and Cara Fotofili in displaying around 80 paintings and prints inside the St Andrews church hall.

The exhibition runs 10am – 3pm on Saturday and Sunday (May 4 and 5), with the open night on Friday, May 3 running 6pm – 8pm. Wine and nibbles will be served and eftpos will be available.

“We will have the hall filled with art of all styles and mediums, paintings as well as quality prints for sale,” said Henriette.

The local artists hope to see a good turn out on the night.
