Sunshine Coast Council presents the fifth biennial art educator exhibition, Squeeze 2013 100% Local Ingredients Only, until 25 May 2013 at the Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre.
Squeeze inspired 27 local art educators from primary, secondary and tertiary institutions, to venture out of classrooms and into studios to expand their arts practice. Squeeze recognises the skills of our regional educators and provides an opportunity for them to display their artworks in a professional gallery setting.
