Peace talks with artist David Ray

Contribute your ideas for the David Ray’s Artspace wall mural!

6pm Thursday 22 November, Artspace Mackay

Artspace Mackay’s artist-in-residence, David Ray wants you to share your ideas and opinions about Peace. So bring your friends and join him at the gallery for peace talks - a FREE group discussion with an opportunity to express what Peace means to you. David believes "the majority of people are good natured and well-meaning, yet those sentiments are rarely expressed in today’s media" The ideas generated in these discussions will be incorporated into his site-specific mural for The Wall titled ‘I come in peace, take me to your leader’. Participants in this entertaining and informative community think tank will discuss ideas about what generates Peace, from personal and social standpoints, in local and world environments. We’ll look to the future - contemplating what our next generations might face in terms of creating and maintaining Peace. David Ray is a ceramic artist from the Yarra Valley who has a reputation for creating wild and flamboyant work. He is an Artspace Mackay artist-in-residence producing a site-specific artwork for The Wall over a two week period in November. This is a great opportunity for people in our community to see and even collaborate with an accomplished Australian artist.
