After winning a chance to exhibit in TAFE NSW Wagga’s Gallery 43 at a charity auction, artist Ruth Baily decided she wanted to create something special with the women in her life.
“I thought I would like to do it with friends so it’s about friends, the female journey and love,” she said.
“It's really just been a very joyful experience for us, in terms of bringing things together that we enjoy making and expressing.
Sheree Ridley, a Wagga artist, is excited to show her series of works Jesus Loves Bad Girls too to the public.
“I love painting women in their empowered, transformed and gorgeous state,” she said.
“Artwork has given me a way to express and validate my feelings and experiences. I am excited to be exhibiting with these incredible artists.”
Karen Walsh, the curator, said the exhibition shows the way women connect together to express their femininity.
“Just putting it up, I was thinking ‘wow this really is powerful and there is such a journey that these women have been on and they've come together in a collective state so it becomes a holistic piece,” she said.
Faces and Fancies Exhibition will be open to the public on weekdays until November 15 from 10am to 4pm at TAFE NSW Wagga’s Gallery 43.
