Artist launches new exhibition
MONTHS of hard work have now paid off for Ipswich artist Anthony Edwards, with his papier mache sculpture display having its official opening tonight.
With the help of volunteers and lots of glue and paper, he created a 1910s-era court scene complete with a judge, a prosecutor, lawyers and the accused.
Ahead of the display’s opening tonight at the Old Ipswich Courthouse, Mr Edwards said he was pleased with how his project turned out.
“People who come down will be able to get a feel of what it would have been like in a courtroom back then,” Mr Edwards said.
He paid special tribute to the volunteers who helped him with the project, as well as the Ipswich Multicultural Projects group and the council grant that helped him create the project.
Tonight’s opening kicks off at 6.30pm at the Old Ipswich Courthouse on the corner of Roderick and East streets. The historical display will then run from this Saturday to Monday, February 28, from 9.30am to 4pm.
