Commissioned Works: Painting & Sculpture Eva Varga - The Artist




Over 200 of Perth’s business people and art lovers attended the opening night of Colours of Life Art Exhibition, which was officially opened by Professor Fiona Stanley AC, Director Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, Chair Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth, on Friday 25 July 2008 held at the Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery.

“Professor Stanley’s opening address was thought provokingly brilliant! In her eloquent way, Professor Stanley emphasised the important work Save the Children were doing in the region and how important events like Colours of Life were to bring awareness to the greater community of the perils faced by Aboriginal Youth in remote areas and give the community a vehicle to make their own contribution.” Eva Varga, organiser and exhibiting artist said.

Colours of Life art exhibition also gave STC a vehicle to launch the new Wyndham Arts Program 2009, another initiative of Eva Varga, which aims to strengthen the positive bonds of youth to their families, friends and their communities through art. The program will incorporate practical arts training with life skills training to establish pathways between art and employment, and offer Wyndham’s youth with another way to find their life’s direction.

The Colours of Life artists, Eva Varga, David Giles, Ralph Stanton, Neil Elliott – all from WA – Marie Hart (daughter of the late Pro Hart) from South Australia and Queensland’s Michael Whitehead agreed to donated part proceeds from the sales of their works to the Youth at Risk project. Over $5000 was raised.

The generous contribution of the Colours of Life corporate sponsors added to the success of the night. Sponsors included, Bella Ridge Wines (special thanks to David Giles WA Artist for organising the Bella Ridge Sponsorship) Vili’s who provided the fabulous food, City of Fremantle and Moores Building Contemporary Art Gallery for providing the fantastic gallery space, CJ King and Co Printers, Gadfly Gallery, Chanel 7, ANZ Bank, Fremantle Flower Factory, Web One Design Studio and Neil Elliott cartoonist/illustrator.
