ART At­tack re­turns to Gayn­dah as business and com­mu­nity group mem­bers cre­ate an art­work for auc­tion next year.

The first event in 2012 raised $6000 and funds from this event will go to­wards art gallery projects, such as fram­ing art­works gifted to Gayn­dah by sis­ter city Zon­hoven in Bel­gium.

An artist will act as men­tor for each of the 12 par­tic­i­pants.

An­nema­ree McGil­very, whose bot­tle tree against a sun­set hangs in their elec­tri­cal shop, painted hers in one af­ter­noon.

Wendy Lutvey en­joyed cre­at­ing her beach scene so much she’s con­tin­ued to paint, and a cou­ple of her pic­tures have been hung in the Gayn­dah Art Gallery.

“Sue (Capewell) was a won­der­ful men­tor,” Ms Lutvey said.

“Sue taught me to paint the can­vas with wa­ter and let it dry.”

Be­fore adding beach um­brel­las, chairs and waves, Sue showed her how to sec­tion the work into three for sky, sea and beach, fol­lowed by work­ing from the back and build­ing out.

Art At­tack will be launched at the gallery on Oc­to­ber 17 at the open­ing of Cen­tre­fold, an ex­hi­bi­tion by Childers’ artists Alice McLaugh­lin and Kym Con­nell.
