Creativity Takes Courage


Carinya’s participants are fortunate to be invited to exhibit their work at galleries throughout the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne. Their skill and enthusiasm to create new pieces is infectious, and you can’t help but be swept into the joy when you enter the art room.  

Participation and engagement in community based art exhibitions is core to Carinya’s mission to connect and empower our participants as valuable members of their community. 

In order for work to be displayed at art exhibitions they need to be framed.  Hours are spent to frame each piece of art before it can leave for an exhibition.  Second hand frames are sourced from op shops and selected to suit the size and colours of the work as best as possible, then the frame is repaired as required, glass is cleaned and scratches and marks removed and mounting stock is cut to size.  Once the artwork is in place, we attach the hanging rope so that the piece can be hung. 

We want to give our participants the best chance at success and encourage that sense of accomplishment they feel when they see their work hanging on display. 

Please make a donation today to give these works the best chance to shine.

We thank you so much for your support.
