JULY2018

Sue Baker
“My Greatest Joy” (First Gallery)
My mum was my biggest fan. She said, ‘you can do whatever you want in life’. I wish she was here now to enjoy my art. After retiring, I accidentally came across a local art group in my area. I’m sure the car and I bounced all the way home at the end of my first day there. What a treat. I couldn’t afford much equipment, so decided pastels might be the cheapest. I fell in love with this medium immediately. I am happy to paint any subject and most mediums, and am thrilled to be exhibiting at this great venue in Wondai. This is my first exhibition. And to make this event more significant, is the fact that the South Burnett is where my heart delights.

Summer Brook-Jones
“Retrospective”  (Main gallery)
Summer Brook-Jones has been many things in her 75 years.  The highlight of her teaching career was to tutor an air brush/mixed media course at the McGregor Summer School at USQ along with four years as art teacher for Mt Isa TAFE, travelling to remote communities in the Gulf.  Her involvement with Wondai Regional Gallery has spanned many years, both with exhibitions and entries in the yearly art competition, in which she was regularly successful.  Sadly that is about to come to an end with her final exhibition opening in July.   Summer said this exhibition is all about “recycling and up-cycling” along with traditional art forms.

Will Nelson
“Country Roads”  (Third Gallery)
Training as a commercial artist in 1965, Will Nelson has been a prolific worker. He has practised portait painting, as well as painting murals. He has earnt his living through his art, exhibiting it in many areas, including Redcliffe and surrounds. His images haven’t been enhanced by any artificial means, and he prides himself on this fact. “Country Roads” is a varied exhibition, demonstrating his wide abilities, and long practiced art.
