FEBRUARY 2024

'Keeping it Local' by Katrina O'Shannessy and Family (First Gallery)

Artwork by Katrina O'Shannessy and family

 

For Katrina, art is a form of expression to let go of the outside stresses of the world and just immerse herself into something that isn’t reality but rather create a reality of her own. Though her first preference is acrylic, Katrina often finds herself branching out and experimenting with loads of other forms of mediums, like sculpture and collage. Katrina enjoys using bold bright colours that push the expressive limits, but she equally enjoys toning it right back to the natural and neutral tones displayed through nature, flora and fauna. She likes artwork that tells a story, that open the viewers eyes to a world beyond our control. Everyday people’s struggles, drought, conservation and science. Generally, Katrina likes the abstract minimalistic style but often gets pulled towards the realistic genre.

'Pulse: Rhythms of the Land' by Lisa Chandler, Tony Coles, Trevor Hood, Wendy McGrath-Lakeland, Des Rolph, Dianne Smith and Kay Wright (Main Gallery)

Artwork by Katrina O'Shannessy and family

Pulse: Rhythms of the Land presents works by a group of Sunshine Coast artists whose creative practice responds to the land and its shifting patterns, tones and rhythms. Encompassing a range of media including painting, drawing, printmaking, and ceramics, the exhibition explores the changing moods of the region’s landscapes. Whether calm and meditative, or pulsing with dynamic energy, the varied works capture diverse facets of our environment while also reflecting intangible elements such as flux and flow, fragility and strength, stillness and movement. The artists all have established creative practices and work in a range of media. They often sketch and paint outdoors together in diverse natural environments.
