NINE Riverina artists, including three from Leeton, are preparing to take part in a unique venture at the Roxy Art Space.
The exhibition is being curated by Sarah McEwan and is called Art Misadventures #3.
It has been designed to challenge the artists and give them some constraints around making new work.
The artists, including Dr Greg Pritchard, Jason Richardson and Jo Roberts, as well as others from Narrandera, Coleambally and Wagga, will meet at the Roxy and choose a box.
Inside the box is an object. The artists will use this object to inspire their artwork.
Ms McEwan said for some artists this way of making work could be terrifying, but all nine were drawn to the project by its sense of mystery and chance.
"None of the artists know what they will be given or making," she said.
"They will have four days in total to dream, create and install a new work. Art can be so serious, it's a way of putting some fun back in to the creative process.
"The Roxy Art Space is a great place to do this too.
"It's a gallery where artists and curators can try out new ideas in a safe environment. Some ideas work and some don't.
"Artists need somewhere to figure this out. I have no idea how this exhibition will look or turn out and I find that really exciting."
The official opening on Sunday at 2pm also doubles as a community farewell to Regional Arts development off cer Dr Pritchard, who is leaving Western Riverina Arts later in the month to pursue his own visual arts career starting with a residency in Africa.
Art Misadventures #3 will be available to view at the gallery Sunday to Thursday from 11am to 4pm until February 24.
