CURRENT EXHIBITION SEPTEMBER 2018

Alpaca Collective
FARM TO FASHION (Gallery One)
The Alpaca Collective was formed when a group of alpaca breeders came together to create incredibly beautiful hand spun garments and nuno felted wearable art, using the luxury fibre from their animals born and bred here in the South Burnett.  They give people the opportunity to buy garments made from this super warm, hypoallergenic fleece, or hand spun yarn for their own creations.
Their members include Julia and Kirsten Jeffery from Shady Pines Alpacas (Pacadorable Designs) and Myrie Cobby from Alpaca Dreams.

Deidre Amos
FAR OUT FURNITURE FRENZY (Main Gallery)
This exhibition of resin art on furniture is about combining the unfeigned fun of resin art and the enjoyment of repurposing old, discarded furniture.  Where someone else sees a dinted, stained table, Deidre sees potential for a far-out furniture frenzy masterpiece.  She enjoys creating something out of nothing.  This seemed like a natural progression from art on a wall to art on furniture that can be used every day.  Resin Art is a unique style, combining durable, hard wearing epoxy resin with acrylic inks, dyes and pigments.  She employs the bold use of beautiful colours to create unbridled and unique pieces of resin art on furniture giving them a second lease on life.

Kingaroy Monday Artists
FAR OUT FURNITURE FRENZY (Main Gallery)
FOR THE LOVE OF ART (Monday Artists are a social group of artists who have been painting together for about 11 years.  They have always welcomed anybody who is looking for a group to paint with.  There is no teaching done but they share their knowledge willingly.  There is always encouragement, laughter and the telling of stories, making for lots of fun.    “For the Love of Art” is their 4th Exhibition together and it showcases their work for the last year.

Lesley Ann Fewtrell
THE DELIGHTS OF GLASS  (Third Gallery)
As an artist Lesley has enjoyed using many mediums.  Australian fauna and flora in graphite has been a favourite.  She now uses mainly glass doing both foil and leadlight work.  She also uses glass for her mosaics and teaches these art forms in classes.  This exhibition is a combination of mediums and all pieces come from what she sees about her and what just comes to mind.
