THE first exhibition of a new Bathurst arts co-operative will open on Friday night.

Artshed is a “collective of artists under one roof” based in Bathurst but also featuring artists from across the Central West.

Natural Spaces and Faces will be opened by mayor Gary Rush at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre at 6pm.

Arts OutWest project manager Penny May has been working with the artists to bring the exhibition together and was hard at work at BMEC on Thursday hanging the finished pieces.

“We really hope the artists continue to work together once the first year is complete,” Ms May said.

“The aim is to give the group the tools to evolve as a collective, using the connections they make through the project to take it forward in whatever way they like.”

Participating artists are Heather Burdette, Nicole Cullen, Alesha Elbourne, Stefan Elbourne, Ian Hazzard, Kelly Hazzard, William Hazzard, John Jones, Lanny Mackenzie, Allegra Salter, Claire Woolmington and Peter Wolsely.
