ALL readers will have been plagued in recent years by an endless supply of catalogues distributed by every major store, outdoor adventure and furniture stores.

They keep  turning up in the letterbox, tucked inside the local newspaper and  in stands at the shops.

But in this constant stream of noise,  specials, two-for-one, 20% off,  ANU Printmedia and Drawing graduate, Kate Smith,  caught glimpses of ‘wonderful colours and potential patterns’.

“It just needed rearranging,” she says and “Cut ‘n’ Paste,” her Emerging Artists Support Scheme exhibition in gallery@bcs, gave her the opportunity to do just that.  You can catch it until close of business tomorrow.

The EASS prize won by Smith included free gallery hire for a three week exhibition, design printing of promotional material, and catering.

Cut ‘N’ Paste by Kate Smith, Belconnen Community Centre, Swanson Court, Belconnen until September 13.

Next up at the gallery is  “We Made This!” a collaborative exhibition featuring experimental paintings created by the BCS community.

Belconnen Community Centre, Swanson Court, Belconnen until September 17 -27. The opening is at 1pm on Tuesday,  September 17. All welcome.

Opening Hours: 9am-4:30pm Mon-Fri (+ 6-8pm on official opening date)
