THREE south-west artists are looking forward to unveiling their artwork to the community after holding on through the pandemic.
Jake Morgan, Leonie Roberts and Adam Clarke's artworks comprise It's Just How We See It, the new exhibition at Warrnambool's F Project Gallery.
They worked together with artist Glenn Morgan for several years to create the art, primarily through painting, drawing and printmaking.
All three artists enjoy telling stories through their artwork.
"I do a lot of artwork using my imagination and it makes me feel alive," Leonie Roberts said.
"I've been doing art for as long as I remember - all my life.
"It just relaxes you and you can put your mind into it.
"It makes life worth living. Things can get really hard but it makes you feel good inside."
Jake Morgan has also been tutored in ceramics by artist Barry Tate.
"It feels good to see them in the gallery," he said.
"I've been doing these since I was 19, I'm 26 now.
"Doing art makes me happy."
Adam Clarke's art draws inspiration from movies.
"Art makes me feel good," he said. "I like drawing characters."
Glenn Morgan teaches the three artists weekly.
His work is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; Museum of Contemporary Art, Brisbane; Museum of Victoria and the Maritime Museum, Victoria; as well as in several regional galleries.
"This is such a bright, energetic exhibition," he said.
The exhibition opens Friday 25 June from 6pm-8pm.
