Kalinda School artists will showcase their finest masterpieces at Yield, an exhibition for people with learning disabilities.
At 6pm on August 15, the doors of the Griffith Regional Art Gallery will be flung open to the public for the Yield exhibition, which is the first of its kind in the gallery's history.
It's a mammoth collaboration between the gallery, the Cad Factory, Riverina Community College and Western Riverina Arts to shine a spotlight on the region's most under-appreciated artists.
One of the artists whose work will be held up for admiration is Kalinda's Gianni Papalia, who enjoys creating the shapes of animals.
But Gianna says the "coolest" art is made by his friend Tanielu Tinei, who has been making WWE Championship belts.
Joel Stedman and his vibrantly colourful sketches will also be on display, and all told there will be 22 artists from Griffith, Woolongong, and even the UK.
The artists will talk about their creative endeavors on August 17 from 11am to 2pm, when the gallery will hold an forum featuring artist talks, performances and short films made by and about people with learning disabilities followed by a Giant Pizza Party from 4.30pm to 7pm.
Curator Sarah McEwan has been watching the art unfold at a "pop-up supported studio" at Lake Wyangan, and she's excited to see the weeks of work pay off.
"I really want people to witness that here in the Riverina we have a strong inclusive community," Ms McEwan said.
"These supported studios allow people to develop their own visual language and their own artistic voice."
The idea for the exhibition was put forward by Griffith Regional Art Gallery coordinator Ray Wholohan, who said he'd been looking forward to seeing this day come.
"We're really excited and thrilled that it's one of our keynote exhibitions this year," he said.
"The Cad factory do a fantastic job with arts and cultural production in our region so I was honoured when Sarah said she'd be happy to pair up with us."
