Locust Jones: Art for literacy

Gallery artist Locust Jones along with other well known Australian artists and a group of teens from Lurnea High School will participate in the exhibition, Subtext: Art for Literacy presented by the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation at Carriageworks.

The centrepiece of the show is an impressive 25m long canvas that Jones worked on with 21 students from East Turkestan, Iraq, Vietnam, Sudan, Argentina and Thailand. The work came together over a series of 5 workshops where the stories of the students were translated onto the canvas.

The show will open this evening and run until March 5.
