Local disabled artist launches second solo exhibition
Popular Elmore disabled artist Kate Frawley will again open up her home to the community when she hosts her second major solo exhibition on Sunday 15 May at 2.00pm.

Kate, a student member of the Mouth and Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) since 1993, began painting with a brush held in her mouth after a car accident in 1976 left her quadriplegic.

Kate was ecstatic with the public response to her first exhibition last year and was overwhelmed by the support she received from people who enjoyed the show and encouraged her to hold another one this year.

“I have decided to call this exhibition Kaleidoscope, because life is a kaleidoscope of colour, age and people’s nature. There are no barriers when it comes to a kaleidoscope,” said Frawley.

As well as showcasing and selling her original artwork, Kate is also aiding two local families to help their children travel to World Youth Day in Cologne Germany later this year.

“I have donated one painting to local twins Nicole and Jenna Stewart to raffle off, and one painting to Carina Spizzica to auction at the exhibition.

“I wanted to do something positive for the community and return the favour to everyone who have always been so good to me.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for both families and I urge the whole community to get behind these lovely girls and support them as young ambassadors for Australia at the gathering of young people.

There will be a gold coin donation entry fee which will also go to helping the girls. Afternoon tea will also be provided.
