Enrich Your Life with Colours Art Exhibition

"Colours, special shapes and patterns are my main obsessions, I believe that colours have an influence over the quality of our lives. Light, strong and vivid colours give me a sense of calm, hope, a good mood and happiness - while dark, greyish colours make me feel depressed or put me in a sad mood". Marta works with many different mediums: wool, glass, acrylic paint, resin and mosaic.

Marta loves the Riverton Artist Community having become a member of the Riverton Arts Committee in 2018 and feels very proud to be a member of it. "I've had a chance to meet lots of very talented artists, and very curious people who come back time and time again to visit these exhibitions and I am very excited to be showing my work this January".

Enrich Your Life With Colours Art Exhibition is on at the Riverton Community Arts Centre from January 11th till February 9th 2020. The centre is open Wednesday till Sunday each week from 11am till 4pm each day. Mart will be at the gallery to meet visitors and talk about her art.
