When support worker Tara began working with client Wendy, she was quick to recognise her creative spirit and love for railway crossings.
Leveraging Tara’s photography background the pair decided to undertake a collaborative mixed-medium art project based upon a central railway crossing theme. Over the course of 2015, Tara and Wendy set about visiting various railway crossings around Perth to draw inspiration. They began working on individual pieces, and together created an impressive collage that integrated Tara’s photography and Wendy’s detailed sketches.
Their collaborative efforts culminated in an art exhibition entitled ‘Railway Crossings Boomgates’, held at the Rocky Bay Café. The event allowed Tara and Wendy to proudly display their collection of creative work, and was well-attended by family, friends and Rocky Bay staff.
The joint art project proved to be a huge success, providing both Tara and Wendy with a fantastic learning experience and a truly rewarding outcome.
