Seven local artists take a fresh and creative view of our flora, fauna and landscape in a new exhibition that will open at Central Goldfields Art Gallery this weekend.
The Under the Sky exhibition will be officially opened by Central Goldfields Shire Administrator Karen Douglas this Saturday 12 May at 2pm and residents are invited to attend.
The seven artists featured in the exhibition are Philip Adams, Lynne Edey, Juliana Hilton, Wes Lancaster, Kerry Punton, Tiffany Titshall and Patricia Walsh.
Visitors will enjoy a diverse display including oil paintings, charcoal drawings, ceramics and bronze sculptures. Many of the artists in the exhibition have taught art in local schools for many years and continue to create art inspired by the environment.
Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said he was delighted to see artists with a connection to our local area presenting their work at our Gallery.
“Many will remember being taught by Phillip Adams, Wes Lancaster, Juliana Hilton, Patricia Walsh, and Kerry Punton. Tiffany Titshall is a local artist and Lynne Edey brings stunning three dimensional bronzes to this group show.”
The exhibition is a collaboration and cross promotion between Central Goldfields Art Gallery and Possum Gully Fine Arts Gallery to support the artistic talent of our region.
The exhibition will be on display at Central Goldfields Art Gallery until 17 June, 2018.
Central Goldfields Art Gallery is located at the Old Fire Station, Neill Street, Maryborough and is open Thursday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
