Lamentation exhibition shines light on illness

THE Lamentation exhibition opens at the Gympie Regional Gallery next Tuesday.

Lamentation is a gentle, sensitive exhibition which deals with emotional issues.

Karike Ashworth approaches the subject of illness and death in her exhibition; a subject which is often an uncomfortable topic to address.

Karike has drawn upon her own personal experiences of living through her mother's illness and death to create an installation which has been described as both enlightening and confronting.

The Lamentation exhibit will run until March 19.
