ANGEL Scarf and Koby Hagenfelds know first hand just how hard it is for young artists to showcase their work in Byron Bay.

So for the past four months the girls have been planning and organising an art exhibition which will be held at the Youth Activities Centre (YAC) in Byron Bay tomorrow (July 31).

The exhibition, ‘Through Your Eyes’ is open to young people aged 16 to 24 years and to date about 25 artists have entered their work.

“This is an opportunity for young people to showcase their work,” Angel said.

“It’s so hard for young artists to break into the market, especially in Byron Bay.”

 Koby said they needed the public to support the exhibition.

“We need the community to get behind what we are doing and help young artists get recognised,” she said.

“Angel and I are trying to do something positive here, something positive for the youth, so it would be great if we could get a crowd along to the exhibition.”

The girls, both passionate artists, are hoping to make the exhibition an annual one.

They have organised all the advertising, the design and printing of fliers and also successfully applied for a $1900 government grant which will help them cover costs. Several businesses have donated prizes.

‘Through Your Eyes’ will be held in the centre’s hall from 5pm.
