THE United States will soon get a taste of the Cen­tral and North Bur­nett.

Mount Perry artist Adri­enne- Wil­liams has be­gun work on four pieces that will be dis­played in the Un­en­cum­bered Gallery in Las Cruces, New Mex­ico.

MsWil­liams was one of four Aus­tralian and four Amer­i­can artists cho­sen for the Wide Bay High Desert pro­ject.

Each artist will dis­play two pieces in New Mex­ico and two in Childers Art Space for the Oc­to­ber ex­hibit.

Last Satur­day, the Pat Au­gus­tine Cul­tural Cen­tre and Gallery in Mount Perry opened Ms Wil­liams’s new ex­hibit, 10 Green Bot­tles.

About 50 peo­ple viewed her works in progress for Wide Bay High Desert.

The ex­hi­bi­tion of oil paint­ings and sketches shows bot­tle trees and lo­cal scenery.

MsWil­liams said she was us­ing the ex­hibit to demon­strate how her arts prac­tice evolved from ideas through to fin­ished pieces.

“Some of the colours are drawn from the Re­gional Ecosys­tem maps,” she said.

“Learn­ing about the maps flaws and val­ues has added to the way (I) see th­ese land­scapes.”

MsWil­liams lives and works in Mt Perry and 10 Green Bot­tles is her sixth solo ex­hi­bi­tion.

She has been ex­hibit­ing since 1999 and has been a full-time artist for three years.

Some of her artis­tic pieces are for sale and 5% of sales will be do­nated to Mt Perry State School for art equip­ment.
