COLOUR City Creatives will throw open the doors of The Barracks to the public during the Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival.

At least 14 artists from the group’s 56 members will exhibit works during the festival, in an exhibition of landscapes, portraits, sculptures, abstracts, photographs, sketches and prints. 

“It’s a building of dynamic creativity and modern art. You think in the country there would only be traditional art, but not here,” secretary Jolanta Nejman said.

“People experiment with all sorts of techniques. It’s modern artwork you won’t see anywhere else.”

The exhibition at The Barracks at 2b Peisley Street will be open for the length of the festival, February 12 to 17, with opening night on February 12.

“Everybody is welcome to come along and see what we do here,” Ms Nejman said.
