CURRENT EXHIBITION SEPTEMBER 2019

Delwyn & Shanae Birkett

CAPTURED + CREATED OF BEAUTY RICH AND RARE – Delwyn and Sharnae Birkett (First Gallery)
This exhibition is a collective showcase of photography and abstract art produced by mother and daughter. Delwyn’s photography focuses on the beauty of Australia, whether it be the sunburnt outback to lush coastal scenes; or our country’s array of flora and fauna. With an eye for great shots, she captures moments in time during her days on the road travelling. Sharnae’s mixed medium artwork shows off her abstract and creative flair; with no two pieces she produces the same. Each piece is freestyled from the mind straight to paper. Through colour and texture, both styles complement each other to capture and create a spectacular image of Australia’s beauty rich and rare.

BURNETT BEAUTY AND BEYOND – Graham W Smith FRQAS, Master Pastellist (Second Gallery)
In the main gallery, ‘Burnett Beauty and Beyond’ is the work of Graham W Smith. Graham (prolific and experienced Queensland Artist) held a watercolour workshop in our Studio earlier in the year and since then has been working on a new exhibition for September. He will be holding an Artist’s talk on Sunday 8 September at 11.00am. He’ll be painting in the gallery Thursday 12, Friday 13, Friday 20 to Sunday 22 September 2019. “Over the last 12 months I have visited the Burnett region to source painting subjects where on a number of occasions I did plein air outdoor paintings, in particular, two small watercolours of the Wondai Hotel, the post office, three studies of the Kingaroy silos, a view overlooking Peterson Drive, outlook from Mount Wooroolin and Gordonbrook Dam. I particularly wanted to feature dramatic skies in this series as the weather is so important to all our farmers. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of your local region.”

Mixed Media – Jan Meiers (Third Gallery)
