Schoolmates reunite over shared creative passion

Schoolmates reunite over shared creative passion

Two school chums have teamed up to present the next exhibition at the Millicent Gallery dubbed Rationally Wasted.

Diana Perkins and Selena Smith met at school in Adelaide more than 40 years ago.

They cemented a friendship through classes based on domestic excellence but they truly connected through their art and drama classes.

Now both are living in the South East and have reconnected after 31 years, this installation reflects their conversations around domestic waste and not buying new for art’s sake.

They will have visitors thinking and talking through the installation and after as they explore the creations and journey from discard to artistic 

The pair are delighted that a fellow school student Dr Rebecca Pannell who has dedicated her career to the creative arts will open their installation.

Everyone is welcome to attend their “soup kitchen” opening afternoon of Rationally Wasted at 1.30pm on May 5.

Soup and bread will be served.

Diana and Selena are grateful to the Wattle Range Council and the Millicent Library for their assistance in hosting their exhibition “Rationally Wasted”.

Their exhibition runs for six weeks.
