The ‘Tell us your story’ theme of this year’s annual Studio Artes exhibition combines the talents of over 60 artists who’ve created pieces which are meaningful to their lives.

The sales from the exhibition, a collaboration between the Hornsby disability service provider and Hornsby TAFE’s Ceramics Department, go towards helping the disabled artists achieve financial freedom.

The story behind the works in paint, printmaking, textiles, photography, sculpture and ceramics will be revealed as their creators will give short talks on what led them to create that piece, throughout the run.

Jay-cee Kim, the artist on our cover, said his painting was inspired by the movie ‘The Book of Life’. “It’s an animated film which explores the concept of life after death. This painting is me imagining my afterlife.”

The exhibition runs from March 13 to 23 at The Gallery, Hornsby TAFE, Building K, 205 Peats Ferry Road, Hornsby from 10am to 4pm. Opening night is from 6 to 8pm on March 13.
