Playing With Colour
Fri 12 January at 10:00 am - Sat 27 January at 5:00 pmFree
Play With Colour is an exhibition by disabled artists, Scott Vandenbergh and Tyler Grant.
Scott is a 34yr old young man who suffers from a very rare degenerative condition called Ataxia Telangeictasia.
Scott lives with his family on a small farm at Springside, just outside of Orange, NSW. Despite his disability which affects his muscles, balance, nervous system and speech, he has attained his certificate 11 in IT, certificate 111 in web design and digital media as well as a full diploma in photography.
He is also a registered stud owner and breeder of alpacas with the help of his family.
As his physical abilities deteriorate he is always looking for new endeavors to sink his efforts into.
Fluid art is the latest activity that he has taken up with the assistance of his carer Greg Wiltshire, along with another young disabled man, Tyler Grant.
Tyler Grant is 24 years old, with Autism spectrum disorder. He lives in Manildra, NSW on 5 acres with his parents. He comes from an artistic family, which includes his sister and is known for his quirky art style. He has immensely enjoyed being shown this type of art form last year and hopes to continue doing so.
Playing With Colour is held at The Odd Sock Gallery, Blayney NSW from Friday January 12th until Saturday 27th January 2024.
The What’s On calendar covers arts and heritage events happening across the NSW Central West in the local government areas of Bathurst Region, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan, Lithgow, Mid-Western Region, Oberon, Orange, Parkes and Weddin.
