Meeting the challenges of her art
THIS has been a challenging year for multiaward winning Mundubbera artist and early childhood teacher Sue Lederhose.
But with her health restored she is excited to see her paintings on the walls of the Mundubbera Bowls Club and the Gayndah council chambers.
And she will be opening her new exhibition, Bites of the Burnett, in the Gayndah gallery on December 15.
Mayor Don Waugh will open the exhibition at 2pm with a high tea in the upstairs gallery room.
Bites of the Burnett is an exhibition of watercolour on canvas.
“Putting watercolour on canvas is an interesting technique and definitely not for a beginner,” Mrs Lederhose said.
“I liken it to making water stick to plastic.
“The technique interested me because I could present my art without the additional cost of framing or dealing with the fragility of glassing.
“Several coats of gloss varnish have been applied to the surface to make it durable and weather proof.”
The Burnett is Mrs Lederhose’s stomping ground and said she found great beauty in the diversity of the country.
She paints in an impressionistic-style using watercolour, pastel and mixed media with a wide variety of subjects drawn from her local rural area.
Mrs Lederhose will continue to learn and explore the visual arts but also intends to teach and help others on their own creative journeys.
She is holding her annual art sale at her home at 20 Mahoney St, Mundubbera. ■ For more information, visit lederhoseart.com or phone 4165 4346.
