Port Stephens Community Arts Centre has come to life with its latest exhibition.

The Musical Kaleidoscope of Colour exhibition features a wide variety of works created by the centre’s artists.

The works depict jazz, blues and country themes. 

“Our artists’ creative minds have run wild and the result is a veritable kaleidoscope of colour and musical images,” the centre’s Meryl Miller said.

Painting part of the exhibition are now being displayed in the main gallery of the centre, where they will remain until July 3. 

The centre’s Spinners and Weavers also have artworks on show in the Annex.

“Our group of 20 Spinners and Weavers have the unique skill of taking raw materials to create usable products using additional crafts such as felting, dying, knitting, crocheting where fibres can be used to make unique garments,” Ms Miller said.

The centre’s feature artist until June 12 is Judy Murrant.

Ms Murrant enjoys painting mainly landscapes and animals in oils.
