Burnett graces American walls in art exhibit
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.
