Meet­ing the chal­lenges of her art

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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 leder­ or phone 4165 4346.
