Not one but three striking exhibitions sure to impress at Noosa Regional Gallery
  • Wednesday 02 October 2013

The community are invited to immerse themselves in three exciting exhibitions promising a complete cultural experience at Sunshine Coast Council’s Noosa Regional Gallery from Thursday 24 October to Sunday 8 November 2013.

The tangled web of family, childhood memory and the natural world feeds Amy Clarke's art in her exhibition entitled Playing with Landscape. Amy is drawn to abstraction and this process allows her to explore more unconscious physical and emotional themes. Art enthusiasts are invited to join Amy at Coffee and Conversations at 10.30am on Friday 1 November as she shares her work and practice on the Coast.

The Becoming Home exhibition by Amanda van Gils reflects a sense of place completed over the last three years. This includes a connection to the land and the landscape as an artistic genre. New artistic challenges and opportunities arose when Amanda moved to Queensland in 2010. Homesickness and curiosity remained while exploring the new landscape. This exhibition is a snapshot of her response to the new home. Enjoy a relaxed and informal atmosphere with Amanda at 10.30am on 26 October when she shares her passions and processes.

Selected Queensland artists Joe Furlonger, Jun Chen and Pamela See share deep connections with China and produced artworks for this exhibition on the theme Transience.  Transience: A Confluence of Australian and Chinese Culture exhibition has received funding from Queensland State Government through Arts Queensland’s Partnership Program. Bookings are now open to learn the technique of Chinese paper-cutting at a workshop with Pamela See at 3pm on 25 October.

Local artists are also invited to attend the free Artist Grapevine networking event on Tuesday 26 November from 10am to 12.30pm at Noosa Regional Gallery. Just bring a plate to share and network with like-minded people.

All are welcome to attend the official opening of these superb exhibitions at 6pm on Friday 25 October 2013 and to attend the diverse range of public programs. Bookings are essential by visiting council’s gallery website or by calling the gallery on 5449 5340. Noosa Regional Gallery is open free to the public, Wednesday to Sunday 10 am to 4pm.
