GALLERY VOLUNTEERS

The success of our gallery relies upon the work of our volunteers, from meeting and greeting visitors to the gallery, to working behind the scenes hanging monthly exhibitions and cooking for Opening Nights. These are a few of the multitude of tasks undertaken by our volunteers. New volunteers are most welcome at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery.

There is always room for more volunteers, as each month the gallery is getting bigger and busier and more time consuming. We try to set up groups to take charge of different projects and maybe one of these areas could suit you.

FRONT OF HOUSE

Welcoming our customers to our current exhibition, and giving information on its content. Answering the telephone and taking messages, and sales. Anyone with computer skills would be greatly welcomed!

KITCHEN

Cooking our delicious finger food for Opening Night and servicing on the night. Cooking starts at about 9.30am on the morning of the opening and we all have great fun thinking of new things to delight the customers.

HANGING GROUP

If you would like to join the hanging team (that’s paintings of course) we meet on the week before Opening Night. This is a very happy group and love throwing around our ideas and learning as we go along.

MUSIC

On Opening Night we have a group of people to call upon to supply soothing sounds as we wander around the Gallery. There is lots of variety with pianists and guitarists and even a string ensemble. If you would like to come along and play, we would love to hear from you.

So come and join the Great Team at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery.

'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.
