Colours of Dalby Workshop
Dalby Gallery 107 November 24th 25th 2018
2 Day Workshop “Colours of Dalby”
Colours of Dalby was a 2 day art workshop that happened on the weekend of 24th -25th November where participants used the Mervyn Moriarty Colour System and each took home a recently released Moriarty Colour Wheel. Dalby was one of the first country towns to benefit from Merv Moriarty’s vision of art for all.
Colours of Dalby was facilitated by ex- Dalby Artist and Educator Trish Callaghan who received her first Art classes as an adult from Jo Smiles at the Dalby Art Group in the 1980s and is well known in for her landscapes in pastel.
The first day of the workshop at Gallery 107 included colour mixing samples made in acrylic on paper with Moriarty’s unique colour system which guarantees repeatable accurate colour mixing.
On the second day some time was spent “en plein air” or, out in a paddock, looking at Dalby skies and dirt. The outcomes of this workshop will be documented to form part of an exhibition to be held in the Gallery next March when Merv Moriarty’s current works will be on show as part of 6 Gallery tour facilitated by Flying Arts Alliance Qld.
